What We're Doing About COVID-19

At WestRidge Golf Course, we take the health and safety of our guests and members very seriously. With our comprehensive plan in place, we feel that golf can remain a safe haven of outdoor activity and mental stimulation.

Golf represents a very healthy option for citizens to get sunlight, exercise, and mental stimulation safely, if done right. We have worked closely with the NGCOA (National Golf Course Owners Association) and the PGA of America as well as our former colleagues at the largest management companies to come up with comprehensive “best practices” to keep everyone safe. We have moved quickly and aggressively to create an operation that can protect our employees and guests while continuing to provide what we feel is a crucial mental health and physical fitness option for our community.

Here are the things we are doing:

Check In

Our golf shop is now open for check in
A maximum of 5 people will be allowed in the golf shop at anytime
Areas will be designated for guests to stand ensure social distancing
Our golf shop staff will be behind shields and wearing gloves
We hope you can help us streamline the check in process by submitting only one payment per group whenever possible
Please don't show up too early for your round, there is limited space available on the driving range and practice greens and standing and waiting will not be permitted

Driving Range

Our driving range is open
Stalls and mats will be spaced 10’ to 12’ apart to ensure social distancing
No waiting is allowed, if there are no spots available you must either wait in your car for a spot to open or come back at another time
Range baskets will be controlled by our golf shop staff and disinfected after each use
Range balls will be thoroughly cleaned after each use

Practice Putting and Chipping Greens

Our practice putting green and chipping green are open
A maximum of 8 people will be allowed to use the putting green at any one time
A maximum of 4 people will be allowed to use the chipping greens and practice bunker at any given time
The maximum time allowed on either the putting or chipping green is 20 minutes
No waiting is allowed, if there are no spots available you must either wait in your car for a spot to open or come back at another time
Please bring your own golf balls for use on the practice putting and chipping green, use of range balls in this area will not be permitted

On the Course

Staff will be making regularly laps around the course to enforce social distancing policies
The last tee time of the day where riding carts will be allowed is 6PM, golfers may walk after 6PM but no carts will be issued. As you can imagine our staff has a number of extra duties to perform to ensure everyone’s safety and prepare for the next day, we appreciate your understanding and we will lift this restriction as soon as is practical

Food & Beverage

The WestRidge Grill is now open with limited seating to comply with current guidelines from the governor
The front patio will be available with limited seating. The pavilion will remain closed 
You will be able to sit inside, watch TV, and order food and drinks in a walk-up service setting 
Our staff will be wearing gloves and operating behind a sneeze guard. Please understand this is not because of anyone being ill - this is for you safety, and our employees' safety. 
We will be using disposable plates and silverware during this time 
Beverage carts will be on the course during peak play times

Post Round

We ask that golf carts be returned to a specific area after your round
Carts are cleaned and disinfected by our staff. A card is placed on the steering wheel letting our staff know which carts have been cleaned and which still need to be cleaned
Guests are encouraged to remove and dispose of as much of their own trash as possible to reduce the items our staff must come in contact with
Cart staff are wearing gloves when disposing of trash and cleaning carts

Staff

We have instructed all staff members who feel ill to stay home. We have a paid sick leave policy in place. 
Any staff member who wishes to wear a mask or face covering has been encouraged to do so, please understand this is a personal choice and not a sign that a staff member who chooses to wear a facemask has any sort of illness. We require some staff members to wear a face mask or covering due to the amount of interaction that is required
We encourage staff to eat well, stay hydrated and well-rested, and quickly report if they are not feeling well
We are reading daily CDC and WHO best practices and communicating to all employees
