There will be several guidelines all golfers must adhere to so we can provide a safe and healthy environment for our staff, our golfers and our community:
- Golfers are asked to arrive NO MORE THAN 15 MINUTES prior to tee times and to leave the facility immediately after their round.
- A Golf Starter will be stationed outside the Golf Shop to direct guest entry, start groups off the first tee and to enforce physical distancing.
- Golfers must practice social distancing at all times – please stay six feet from one another, and wear face masks as directed by the CDC. Do not touch your playing partners. No high-fives, fist bumps or handshakes. No sharing of equipment. Please adhere to physical distancing while walking down the fairway, searching for lost balls and standing on the greens.
- Motorized golf carts are allowed with single riders only. If players live in the same household, they may share a motorized golf cart.
- All motorized golf carts must be returned by 9pm.
- Range balls are for use at the range tee only. Space is limited on the range tee to 8 hitting stations. Range balls can be purchased by phone or by using a credit card at the Learning Center.
- Players must provide their own practice balls on the putting and chipping areas. The limit on the putting green is 6 people and the chipping areas are limited to 2 per chipping area.
- Clubhouses are closed.
- We have eliminated touchpoints throughout the course for everyone’s safety.
- Players should leave flagstick in cups at all times. Foam cup fillers will keep the ball from going to the bottom of the hole. We encourage continuous putting and two-foot “gimmies” to all golfers.
- We have removed all ball washers, trash cans and water coolers. After play, please dispose of trash in receptacles.
- Portolets along the courses are closed. There is a bathroom adjacent to the Pro Shop which is disinfected regularly and subject to social distancing practices.
- Bunker rakes have also been removed. Please play preferred lies in sand traps and smooth sand with your foot before exiting the bunker.
- We encourage golfers to be proactive and responsible for bringing their own hand sanitizer, water or other personal items for use while golfing.
As always, if you are experiencing flu-like symptoms such as coughing, fever or difficulty breathing, we ask that you stay home.
All tee times must be booked by phone or online. Play will be staggered at half the rate between tees, allowing about 15 mins of play time between rounds. This will help spread out players so golfers are not lingering between holes.
We ask that all golfers please follow these procedures to keep everyone safe. Anyone not adhering to the guidelines will be asked to leave the property immediately.
