The Golf Course

First and foremost, the safest place for people to be during this time is at home. However, to meet the needs of recommended outside time and exercise - plus the mental health benefits of sport - we are excited to welcome our golfers back. 

In order to maintain the safety of our guests and staff, we have instituted new and extensive protocols. It is essential that everyone follow our new procedures if we are to offer you golf this season. Please know that if you cannot or will not adhere to these protocols you will be asked to leave the property, immediately.


Some of our new protocols...

  • Tee time must be pre-booked. NO walk-ins
  • You may show up 20 minutes in advance of your tee time (no earlier)
  • Increased spacing between tee times to enhance physical distancing
  • Physical distancing of 2m mandatory at all times
  • Contactless check-in window at the Pavilion for members and guests, alike
  • All transactions will be paid electronically (credit card, debit, NO cash)
  • Light snacks and drinks available for purchase from the Pavilion window
  • The Clubhouse is closed and off-limits
  • New hand-wash locations for your sanitary practices
  • Single rider power carts (unless same household) to be disinfected after each use
  • No rakes in the bunkers
  • No ball washers
  • Do not touch flag stick; putt with flag in
  • No sharing of equipment 
  • No sharing of food, beverage or inhalation products
  • No garbage left on the course; take all garbage home
  • Immediate departure of the facility upon completion of golf

THE GOOD NEWS:
Golf presents the perfect activity for these times. With a huge property, players can easily maintain the required physical distancing measures of remaining 2m apart from peers while enjoying fresh air, outdoor exercise and the resulting positive mental benefits.

Turf Department

At Cobble Beach, the Turf Department’s paramount concern is keeping our employees, members and guests’ risk of exposure as close to zero as possible. With the severity of spreading the virus we will make sure that we are doing everything in our power to mitigate this risk. Any employee that doesn’t abide by the terms below for the designated communicated period will be liable in violation of our Covid-19 response plan. Disciplinary action will be taken to any employee not abiding by these guidelines.      
 

Some of our new protocols...

  • We will be operating using staggered start times to begin the 2020 season
  • Every evening the staff will be sent the job board that goes over the next day’s tasks and notes via email
  • The punch-in clock will not be used... we will use work report forms
  • Staff must sanitize their hands before entering the shop
  • Social distancing and awareness must be used at all times
  • Any equipment or tool that is touched must be sprayed down with the provided disinfectant
  • We will have staggered breaks and lunches
  • Staff are also encouraged to eat and snack at the location they're working on property
  • Now that start times will be staggered, end times will also be staggered
  • Shop cleanliness and organization will remain one of our top priorities

There will be growing pains with these new protocols and things will continually change.  Our department will adapt to the changing environment and tweak these mandates as needed.  But the philosophy will not change.  This is not an ideal situation.  But if all do our part, we will still have a safe and enjoyable 2020 season.
