What We're Doing About COVID-19

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 a comprehensive and continually updated “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


Check In

  • Our golf shop is now open for check in
  • A maximum of 6 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 to Full Golf, PLP, Sport Members and golfers with a tee time on their day of play
  • For all golfers (members and non-members) who wish to warm up on the day of play, there will be a 20-ball warm up basket available for purchase (free for members). Six hitting stalls will be reserved for golfers who have purchased a warmup bucket.
  • Members not playing golf who wish to use the driving range may do so by reservation only
  • You may reserve a stall for up to 1 hour by calling the golf shop
  • 16 stalls will be reserved exclusively for the use of our members
  • 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 is open to Full Golf, PLP, Sport Members and golfers with a tee time on their day of play
  • The practice putting green will be divided into 8 sections and only one person will be allowed in each section at one time
  • A maximum of 3 people will be allowed to use the chipping green 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 from use on the practice putting and chipping green, use of range balls in this area will not be permitted

On the Course

  • Water coolers, rakes, and other commonly handled objects have been removed from the golf course
  • We have modified our cups so that golfers can retrieve their golf ball without actually touching the cups itself or the flag - making it a "no touch" experience
  • 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 6:30PM, golfers may walk after 6:30PM 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

Golf Carts

  • We have created a walking incentive where golfers are given a free beverage if they choose to walk rather than ride
  • As a result of the Governor's continued reopening plan, golfers are now allowed to ride together in a cart
  • We still have complimentary pull carts available for those who prefer to walk and we will continue providing 2 free drinks for those that choose to walk
  • We have ordered additional golf carts that should be arriving soon and we will send out an email with further information on the additional carts once they arrive
  • Golf carts are thoroughly wiped down after each round. This includes the steering wheel, seat, bag strap, and side handles with disinfecting wipes or spray
  • Cart staff are wearing protective gloves and changing them throughout the day

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

Food & Beverage

  • The Sky Creek Grill is now open with limited seating to comply with the current guidelines from Governor Abbott
  • Until May 18th we will be offering walk up service in the Sky Creek Grill (no table side service)
  • You will be able to sit inside, watch TV, and order food and drinks, it will just be in a walk up setting
  • During this time, we will be using disposable plates and silverware as well as all condiments will be single use disposable portions
  • If there has been no significant negative trend in COVID-19 progression, we plan to reintroduce tableside service starting May 18th.
  • We will continue to offer Take Out food to go
  • We require all guests call (817) 498-1414 to place your takeout order. You can find our to go menu here
  • Beverage carts will be located in stationary positions on the golf course to ensure proper social distancing and still provide your service on the course

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 face mask has any sort of illness
  • 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

Communication

  • We are communicating nearly every day with our guests letting them know of these steps and others we develop. This includes emails to our entire customer database as well as specifically to golfers playing the next day. We feel this is key to the golfers' compliance with these changes. We have found that golfers want their activity to remain available, and we just need to inform them of what is required

We believe we are at the forefront of what is required to keep this vital activity available to our community. As long as we are open we intend to continue to look for more and more ways to make this “new normal” as seamless as possible for golfers while maintaining and improving safety measures. All evidence seems to show that COVID-19 does not like sun and heat, golf is an activity where you can spend hours out in the sun, heat, and fresh air, with even more structured social distancing than a public park as only a few people can be on a golf hole at a time. Most golf holes are 150 to 550 yards long so it’s nearly impossible for more than 4 people to be with a few hundred yards of anyone else at any given time. 

We believe we are leaders in how this can be done and we hope we can demonstrate a path forward that is acceptable to all on how to keep this resource available for our community.
