Covid-19 Virus Update
In an effort to further improve the safety of our guests, the following additional protocols will go into effect Saturday, March 21st, 2020 at the Santiam Golf Club. Our power golf cart fleet has 42 rental carts available. We are requesting all players capable of walking do so that guests who are physically not capable of walking will have power carts available.
1 – In accordance with the social distancing rules set forth by Governor Brown, single riders and one bag ONLY will be permitted in all power carts including privately owned carts. NO EXCEPTIONS. This includes spouses and/or family members. In addition, no groups larger than ten, (even in outdoor spaces) are permitted to congregate before, during or following the round.
2 – Flags MUST remain in the cup at all times and are NOT permitted to be tended nor removed. Violators may be subject to removal from the property.
3 – No more than eight persons (including staff)shall be permitted in the golf shop at any one time. This number may further decrease as time goes on.
4 – Bunker rakes have been removed from all bunkers. Play from bunkers shall proceed in the following manner:
Lift ball and smooth sand to satisfactory conditions with your foot. Place ball as close as possible to original position. Play on. NO PENALTY!!
5 – We ask when possible to pay with credit or debit card to reduce the passing of bills and change.
6 – We have modified our position on raising cups 1″ above the putting surface. We shall be adopting the same solution being utilized at Pinehurst in North Carolina. We have placed inserts in the cups which will allow the ball to drop into the cup but not fall all the way to the bottom. This will allow for the ball to be holed out without needing to reach below the surface to retrieve your ball.
Please keep in mind these protocols are being implemented to protect you, not inconvenience you. Our goal is to remain open through this crisis to provide a recreational outlet for our members and the community.
The Santiam Golf Club has implemented the following procedures:
Sanitizing power cart steering wheels, seats and bag areas
Sanitizing pull cart handles
Wiping down pro shop surfaces, door handles, restrooms and other common areas every two hours
We have removed ball washers please bring an extra towel
In an effort to keep our customers safe but still provide a recreational outlet we ask that all members and visitors practice the following:
Social Distancing- 6ft
Wash hands before, at the turn and after your round
Do not exchange scored cards, tees, balls ect
Always leave the pin in and do not touch the flagsticks
No Handshakes – elbow bumps are strongly recommended
