 COVID-19 Phase II protocol:  all members, guests, and staff will be required to wear a facial covering when inside the golf shop, club house, and driving range shop. This is in compliance with Governor Brown’s order.

Good Morning,
The Summer keeps chugging along, we are through the Cap City and kind of heading into the home stretch. That being said we have a few more events this month. Two will affect the golf course and two will not affect it by very much. 
August 11- Round 1 Ladies Club Championship 8:30am tee time
August 17- YMCA Fundraiser 8:00-1:00pm tee time start. Course closed until 2m
August 18- Round 2 Ladies Club Championship 8:30am tee time
August 21- Salem Contractors 8:00-1:00pm tee time start. Course closed until 2m
August 22- Round 1 Men’s Club Championship 9am tee time start
August 23- Round 2 Men’s Club Championship 9am tee time start
I am looking to have another 1-person scramble in September so start looking for that.
During the days that are impacted by tournament play, I would like to remind you that we have 8 courses on our reciprocal list that are available.
The courses are:
  • Spring Hill
  • Michelbook
  • McNary
  • Charbonneau
  • Club Green Meadows
  • Juniper
  • Pine Ridge
  • Coos Golf Club
Marion County is in Phase II.   Here are a few things that we are able to do:
  • The men’s club on Thursday evenings may be able to move into the traditional back 9 shotgun soon.  
  • Driving range will be moving to the grass tee on the far side of the range. Social distancing will be enforced.
  • Whiskey Browns is now open with social distancing both in the outside and inside seating areas.  Take out is also available.
    • Flags are on the greens with a swim noodle around inside the cup. We ask that you do not touch the flags. 
    • Social distancing is still required.
    We will continue with the following: 
    • The putting green at the golf range and near the pro shop will not have flags.
    • We will limit the number of people in the golf shop to 6 or less.
    • The staff has been hard at work disinfecting the golf shop, entry ways, and writing utensils. 
    • No rakes in the bunkers, and no water in the ball washers.
     Again, thank your for your understanding during this time.  Stay safe and hope to see at the club soon.
    Best,  Alan Reese, Golf Pro
