TYOGA GOLF COURSE
GUIDELINES FOR GOLF COURSE OPERATIONS/DENSITY REDUCTION PLAN

STAFF DIRECTIVES, POLICIES AND GUIDELINES

We ask all employees and all patrons if you feel sick, in any capacity that you stay home for the safety of other golfers and golf course staff. As such, if any staff members are showing signs of being ill, they will be sent home immediately. We also have instructed our staff to wash hands frequently and to wear gloves when handling any type of transaction between patrons (i.e. handling inventory, cart keys, etc.). Pro shop employees will always be wearing masks when dealing with patrons and we ask the patrons to wear a mask when inside the pro shop. All touch points will be disinfected at regular intervals throughout the day in the pro shop. Carts will be cleaned prior to use by patrons. Additionally, to eliminate nonessential touch points on the golf course, ball washers, pencils and bunker rakes will be removed. All staff and patrons are to adhere to the 6’ minimum (“two club lengths”) social distance directive.
