COVID-19 – PROCEDURES FOR CHECK-IN AND SAFETY MEASURES

Dear Members, Cardholders and Guests,

UPDATED MARCH 23, 2020

Here is a much shorter version of the email I sent yesterday.  The online payment for all before play is not going to work.  We had people wandering around the clubhouse this morning not knowing what to do or where to go.  Although I think it would work after a few weeks, we don’t have that much time to figure it out, to put it plainly, it flopped.  We are going to keep it simple instead.  The golf shop is closed but check in will be through the window on the back porch.  We are able to have the 6 foot social distancing recommendation and keep everyone safe.  Merchandise, premade sandwiches, packaged snacks, drink and beer are available to go.  

The Oaks Golf Club is determined to continue offering a safe activity & environment for you, your friends and your family during this time.  In addition, we have to keep our staff and their families safe. For these reasons, we are changing things up until the threat is gone.  We are eliminating every possible touch point.  We appreciate your understanding and look forward to having you play the course.  Here are the new processes we are implementing starting today:

  • The clubhouse will be closed until the threat of COVID-19 is over.
  • Check In will be from the back porch through the window.  
  • Credit card and member charges only, no cash.
  • We will have merchandise, premade sandwiches, packaged snacks, drink and beer available to go.
  • Range balls will be available on the range tee for anyone who has paid a green fee.
  • Single rider carts available.
  • There are restrooms in the cart barn, #6 & #15.  These will be sterilized repeatedly.
  • We recommend you bring your own sanitizer and wipes for additional precaution.
  • This will continue as long as we are allowed to be open or until this threat is over.

These new items are in addition to the following procedures we have already implemented on the golf course:

  • We have removed all water coolers.
  • We have removed all ball washers.
  • We have removed all rakes, it is lift clean and place in the bunker.
  • We have turned the cups upside down which allows golfers to get their ball out of the hole without touching the pin or the cup.
  • Carts are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized after play and when they are staged to go out.
  • We will clean and sanitize on course restrooms hourly throughout the day.

We appreciate your understanding as we work through this new process.  We greatly appreciate your continued support of The Oaks.  We wish you and yours the very best during this difficult time.

Thanks,

Russ
