The clubhouse of the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island Golf Resort glows in the fading daylight.

As states across the U.S. phase in the reopening of their economies, hotels, golf courses and resorts are also announcing reopening plans. In the past several weeks, many of the largest and most popular golf resorts in the country have either reopened or will by early June.

Some states are still mandating self-quarantine. Golf courses are mostly reopened in Hawaii, but the government is still requiring out-of-state guests to self-quarantine for 14 days. This order is currently set to expire on June 30 but may be extended. Inter-island travel quarantine is scheduled to expire June 16.

On the theme-park front, Universal Studios reopened on June 5. Disney has announced a July 11 reopening date for Disney World. Disney Land does not yet have a reopening date.
