FAQ: Visiting Three Rivers Golf Courses

Returning to the golf course is always a welcome sign of spring in Minnesota, and this year we appreciate it even more. A few changes to the usual operations of our courses will be in place for the 2021 season to encourage social distancing, reduce touching shared surfaces and decrease face-to-face interaction.

We are committed to providing a fun and enjoyable experience for all golfers this year; please don’t hesitate to reach out to course staff at any time. We look forward to seeing you on the course!

How Should I Make A Tee Time?

  • Making tee times online is preferred. Tee times are no longer available through Tee Master. Instead, they can be scheduled through our website.
  • Tour cards and season passes are available for purchase online.
  • Please arrive no more than 30 minutes before your scheduled tee time. 
  • Stay home if you feel sick or are exhibiting symptoms consistent with COVID-19.

Are There Changes to Clubhouses and Restrooms?

Restrooms are available inside the clubhouses and at some locations, out on the course. Clubhouse operations and offerings are operating as usual. 

In accordance with current guidance from the CDC and Minnesota Department of Health, all park visitors are strongly encouraged to wear face coverings in indoor public spaces.

Will Golf Play Be Different?

Fast play is always encouraged, but it also helps promote distancing between groups on the course.

Flags should be left in place at each hole.

How Will Driving Ranges Work?

All driving ranges are open for the season. Please limit your time on the driving range if there are others waiting.

Will Golf Carts Be Available?

With golf participation at an all-time high, we ask for everyone’s help making golf carts available for those who need them. With that in mind, golfers will be asked to walk if possible.

For those who need them, carts will be available with the following procedures in place:

  • Cart dividers will be available for anyone wishing to use them. 
  • Anyone requesting a single cart will be required to pay the full cart rate. This includes requests due to medical reasons. Single-rider carts are based on availability and cannot be guaranteed.  
  • Carts will be available on a first-come, first-served basis by tee time (not by arrival time at the course).
  • Carts may be in short supply, especially on busy days. If no carts are available at your tee time, you can wait for the next one to come off the course. If you miss your tee time waiting for a cart, we cannot guarantee that you will be able to play.

How Should I Prepare for Lessons?

Before you arrive at the course for your lesson, here are a few reminders:

  • While face coverings are no longer required, they are strongly encouraged for anyone who is not vaccinated when they are inside or when social distancing is not feasible.
  • Dress for the weather and bring water from home. Bring snacks for longer programs. 
  • Golfers are encouraged to arrive just before the start of their lesson or league and leave shortly after.
  • Practice good hygiene before, during and after your time at the golf course.
  • Stay home if you feel sick or are exhibiting symptoms consistent with COVID-19.
