Golf Course Operations Updates

April 17, 2020

Based on the guidelines set by Governor Walz’s Executive Order 20-38 allowing for Safe Outdoor Recreation, our golf courses are now open.

The health of our guests and staff are the highest priority, so changes to the usual operations of our courses will be in place to encourage social distancing, reduce touching shared surfaces and decrease face-to-face interaction. 

Tee Times

  • Tour cards and season passes are available for purchase online only.
  • Please make tee times ahead of time.
  • Making tee times online is preferred. Tee times can be made by calling the clubhouse, but response time may be slow due to limited staffing.
  • Golfers should arrive no more than 20 minutes before their scheduled tee time.
  • If you are sick or experiencing respiratory symptoms, do not come to the golf course.

Clubhouses and Restrooms

  • Upon arrival, come to the clubhouse to pay for greens fees and range use.
  • In accordance with Governor Walz's mandate (Executive Order 20-81), visitors are required to wear face coverings inside Three Rivers buildings.
  • All transactions will be credit card only. No cash transactions.
  • Clubhouses will be open with limited services. (Cleary Lake’s clubhouse will remain closed. All transactions will be done through the service window.)
  • To reduce gathering, clubhouses will be one-way traffic flow. Please follow the entrance/exit signs marked on each door.
  • Restroom facilities will be available at/near clubhouses and on the course.
  • Select beverages and snacks will be available for purchase but must be consumed outside, on the course.
  • Gathering in the clubhouse will not be allowed.

Golf Play

  • Please do your best to smooth the sand using a club or your shoe, as bunker rakes will not be available.
  • Cups will be adjusted on the greens to reduce the need for touching surfaces when removing your ball.
  • Flags should be left in place at each hole.
  • Fast play is encouraged to promote social distancing.

Practice Areas

  • Driving ranges will be open but may be limited due to staffing and supplies.
  • Spacing will be increased to promote social distancing.
  • Please limit your time on the driving range if there are others waiting.

Returning to the golf course is always a welcome sign of spring in Minnesota, and this year we appreciate it even more than usual. We are excited to see you back on the course and appreciate your patience and understanding as we adjust our operations to ensure everyone’s health and safety.

Make your tee time today, and we’ll see you this weekend!
