COVID-19 Policies

Golf Car Policy Beginning 10/24/2020

Effective October 24th, 2020, all golfers will pay the regular posted rate for golf and cart assuming they ride with their playing partner (foursomes and threesomes receive 2 carts at regular rate).  Each additional cart per group will cost $10.

We are doing everything we can to promote a safe, clean and fun golf environment while on the property. The amount of fuel used, labor required, wear and tear on the golf cart fleet and additional stress to the turfgrass with more cart traffic has added expense and operational complications. We are trying to balance cost, safety and our ability to deliver the best product we can and we appreciate your understanding as we continue to navigate these difficult times.

 

 More clarification based on your group make-up;

Optional Single Golf Cart fee per person:  additional $10 This additional fee is the same whether playing 9 or 18 holes. ***Please note that the additional single rider fee will not have the option for a rain check***

Foursome:  If you have four players, two carts will be included in the regular rate (two riders per cart). If anyone wishes to have their own cart, the additional cart user simply pays the regular rate plus $10.

Threesome:  If all three players are riding, two carts will be included in the regular rate. If the group requires a third cart, the group is subject to an additional $10 fee.

Twosome:  If both riders share a cart, they pay the regular rate (one cart included in the regular rate).

Single Golfers:  If a single is paired with a group of less than four (4) players and rides, the single may ride with that group at the regular rate and no additional charge. If either golfer (the single or a player in the group) wishes to have his or her own cart, they will be charged the regular rate plus $10.

Black & Gold Members: All memberships include the use of a golf cart. If a member requests his or her own single cart, that will be subject to a $10 cart fee. 

NOTE:. If two members play together and each want their own cart, there is only a $10 fee (because the first cart is included in the regular rate).
