Acoaxet Club Guidelines for Phase 3 Golf Play
During COVID-19 Pandemic
 
Member Golfers’ Responsibilities: Open for members and their pre-screened guests only

  • If you have underlying health concerns or feel that being on the golf course is too risky at this time, DO NOT PLAY GOLF.  The Acoaxet Club can only put measures in place that are intended to protect you, to a point.  The decision to play is up to you.
  • It is the responsibility of the member to email or call the Pro Shop to reserve tee times and provide the full names of their guests.  NO WALK-ON GOLF IS AVAILABLE.  You must call or email the Pro Shop to ensure that you begin play at a specific tee time to ensure safe-distance practices.
  • The member will pre-screen their guests to ensure that they are not exhibiting symptoms of COVID-19. 
  • The member will be responsible for themselves and their guests abiding by social-distancing guidelines, outlined below.
  • Bring your own water, as the water fountains on the course will not be available. Coolers and bringing your own alcoholic beverages are always prohibited.
Play:   Walking is strongly encouraged
  • Tee times must be reserved ahead of time, no more than 2 days in advance.
  • A foam insert has been placed on the flagstick in the hole so the ball drops in about an inch.  Please remove the ball with your fingertips without touching the flagstick.
  • No rakes on the course (preferred lies in bunkers), no ball washers, or trash barrels.  Best effort to smooth out the sand with foot is appreciated.
  • USGA handicapping rules allow for scores to be posted under these conditions. New world handicap system recommends entering hole-by-hole scores, and using GHIN app to do so.  Pro shop handicap computer will not be available for use until further notice.
Carts:                    
  • Limited number of rental push carts available.  Each will be cleaned with disinfectant after each use.
  • It is strongly recommended to bring your own push cart.  Push cart storage has been eliminated from the Clubhouse garage.  At this time all push/pull carts for purchase are backordered until August.  There are a few on order for that time.
  • Driving golf carts are allowed, limit 1 rider per cart unless from same household.
  • Any carts used must be cleaned and sanitized after each use.
 
Social-Distancing Guidelines:
  • Change shoes in parking lot at your car.
  • Do not sit on benches or chairs that may have been left out.
  • Maintain at least a 6 foot distance between players at all times, especially on tee boxes.
