There will be a frost delay until 8:45 am.  All tee times through 9:00 am will be pushed back 45 minutes.  There will NOT be a modified shotgun.  Power carts will be permitted to cross fairways at 90 degrees.

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.

As stated on our website, power carts are for single passengers and one golf bag ONLY. This includes couples and family members as well as privately owned carts. There are NO EXCEPTIONS.

There is a frost delay today. All tee times prior to 11:00 am shall be pushed back 45 minutes. This will be the final update. To be clear there will not be a modified shotgun start. Currently booked tee times shall be pushed back 45 minutes to ensure persons will not congregate in and around the pro shop area. Power carts may cross at 90 degrees. Please read last nights news for Covid-19 updates.

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.

1 – In accordance with the social distancing rules set forth by Governor Brown, single riders ONLY will be permitted in all power carts including privately owned carts.  NO EXCEPTIONS.  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 – Beginning Sunday March 22nd, all putting green cups shall be raised to 1″ above the putting surface to further reduce communal surfaces.  A putt shall be deemed to have been holed if it touches the cup and remains within two feet of the raised cup.

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 frost delay will end at approximately 9:15.  Please be advised it may be slightly longer if the thaw does not continue at its current pace.  Power carts are permitted to cross fairways at 90 degrees throughout the course.  Please visit the tee time page on our website to check availability and to book your tee time for today.
