Golf Outings & League Play Update
April 2, 2020
All scheduled Golf Outings have been cancelled for the duration of the State of Emergency in Kentucky. When we return to normal operations, golf leagues & golf outings will take place as planned. Every accommodation will be made to re-schedule any cancelled leagues or events.
We can continue to host previously scheduled leagues with restrictions in place.
During this State of Emergency, tee times are every 16 minutes instead of every 8 minutes, meaning each league will have access to 50% of their tee times. In other words, if your league has 4 tee times (16 golfers), you will have access to 2 tee times (8 golfers).
There is no requirement for any league play during this State of Emergency. If a league chooses to not play at all, there will be no penalty.
As a reminder, the course remains walking-only and social distancing protocols must be maintained at all times.
If you have questions, please call us 859.431.8030.
