Great news, we have been given clearance to open for the 2020 season! As we mentioned previously, while we are opening for play, things will still look and feel far different from normal. Please read on to find out how things have changed.
When can I play?
The Pro Shop will be open and available to reserve tee times starting at 8:00 on Thursday May 7 via phone only.
CCB Members – We will be open to member play only May 7-8, 2020. All members who would like to play must contact the Pro Shop by phone to make a tee time – walk-in tee times will not be permitted. You must let the staff know all members of your group and whether they will be walking or riding. All cart rentals must be paid in advance and we ask that you contact the pro shop to place a credit or debit card on file that may be charged. Member reserved tee times will not be honored until Monday May 11, so please plan accordingly.
Non-members & Guests – As of Saturday, May 9 we will also open to all residents of Vermont. Again, tee times will be required and must be reserved through the Pro Shop at (802) 476-7658 – walk-in tee times will not be permitted. The shop must be notified of all players in the group and whether those players will be walking or riding. All cart rentals and green fees must be paid in advance.
Online tee time booking will be available for members and non-members beginning Monday, May 11. Walk in tee times will still not be permitted.
Safety Measures Implemented:
We will not be accepting cash for any payments. All payments must be made via credit or debit card, either by phone or on our website. Again, NO CASH WILL BE ACCEPTED.
Tee times will be available at 15-minute increments to allow for physical distancing between groups.
Carts will be restricted to one player and one bag per cart – no exceptions. We have 50 new carts this season, but we highly encourage anyone able to walk the course to do so.
Clubhouse will remain closed to all. The locker rooms and bagroom will be closed until further notice. We are installing two porta-potties on the golf course and drinking water will be available to purchase through Fairways & Greens ($1.00 per bottle).
Fairways & Greens will be offering curbside pickup only – please call (802)505-4023 or (802)371-9826 to place your order.
The Pro Shop will be closed to all, but that does not mean you need to buy gloves, balls, and other supplies elsewhere. Peter and staff will have goods available for curbside pickup. Please contact him via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (802)476-7658 to place your order before you play.
All flagsticks must always remain in the hole. Bill and staff have installed pool noodles in each cup to allow you to remove your ball from the hole without touching the flag or lip of the hole.
Bunker rakes, scorecards/pencils and trash cans have been removed from the golf course. We encourage the use of electronic scoring on your personal cell phone.
The driving range will remain closed until further notice. Practice putting greens will be open so you can warm up prior to play – you may not use the areas unless you have a tee time.
Physical distancing guidelines are still in effect, so please remember to stay at least 6 feet from others whenever possible.
We thank you for you understanding and your efforts to continue to practice social distancing measures. These restrictions are subject to change. See you all at the club!
