The following “Social Distancing Guidelines” are required for all golfers
- ***NEW*** Individuals that are sharing a cart but from a separate household MUST wear a mask.
- All golfers must always maintain a minimum of 6 feet of distance from other golfers and staff (unless sharing a cart). Failure to observe physical distancing risks the closure of the course, and as such, you will be asked to leave the premises.
- The flagstick must always remain in the cup and no one should touch the flagstick for any reason. The cup will be set up so that the ball is easily retrieved without touching the cup.
- All golfers are asked to refrain from congregating at any time during their time at the course (parking lot, tee boxes, on any green, etc)
- No one will be allowed inside the Pro Shop except for emergency use of the washrooms.
- Your activities on the course will be monitored by the pro shop, golf course staff and potentially by a marshal. If you do not comply with the restrictions then you will be asked to leave the course. You will lose your cart fee, if any, and your playing privileges will be revoked indefinitely.
These procedures have been put in place for your safety, the safety of your playing partners and the safety of our Staff. Thank you in advance for joining us to keep golf a safe activity during these unprecedented times.
