SOUTH SUBURBAN GOLF COURSES RE-OPENING SATURDAY APRIL 18, 2020
South Suburban has been working diligently to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and align the operations of its golf courses to mirror the recommendations of public health orders that have been issued. First and foremost, we are dedicated to protecting the health and safety of both the public and our staff. In order to reopen, we will be requiring all of our patrons to adhere to and respect the rules and safeguards that have been put in place to protect everyone.
The state guidelines allows golf courses to operate and provide a healthy outdoor activity that adheres to local and state requirements. Although the state order requires us all to stay at home, it does allow for safe outdoor activities if critical to your health and safety, or that of your family or household members.
We are implementing safeguards that will enable us to provide a low-risk outdoor experience, while responsibly social distancing at the same time.
Players are asked not to come to the course if they have symptoms of COVID-19, or have been in contact with anyone who is ill or may have symptoms of the virus, especially if someone has tested positive. Players must practice good social distancing protocols and hygiene and stay at least 6 feet apart. It is imperative to be diligent in following our protocols of not touching common surfaces, shaking hands, or gathering in groups at any time, in any areas. Players must comply with proper distancing and sanitizer use for your own health, the safety of fellow customers, and staff. ALL PLAYERS ARE REQUIRED TO WEAR A MASK COVERING YOUR NOSE AND MOUTH WHILE UTILIZING THE PRO SHOP, GRILL AND RESTROOMS.
These requirements include safeguards that should enable our courses to stay open. It is the responsibility of everyone to do their part and do the right thing. We will continue to monitor local and state guidelines to stay current with the appropriate health agencies and to comply with any changing rules.
