Private Golf Clubs in Scottsdale are of the belief that Governor Ducey will be giving us a message within the next week regarding his plans for the future of in our case, Scottsdale Private Golf Courses
The social distancing parameters are still in place at Private Golf Clubs in Scottsdale and we are not changing any of the rules that we have set forth thus far. We are still expected to remain a minimum of 6 feet apart at all times. This includes carts being parked and range stalls being set. We realize that the double tee start might make this difficult but please know this is just a test of our operation and how we can improve for the enjoyment of the membership at Scottsdale golf club.
This has many goals to achieve.
1 - The weather is headed toward the balmy 100 degrees and it gives us the best chance for more 18 hole rounds to be completed before it gets too hot.
2 - Most of our Private Golf Clubs in Scottsdale players especially in the summer months (which we deem as May through September), prefer to play in the morning and a double tee start allows us to offer this more so than a straight tee.
3 - The majority of our 18 hole play at Scottsdale Private Golf Courses will be finished by 6PM, which AT THIS POINT IN TIME is when we require the carts to return to the clubhouse.
4 - When the time comes, NOT YET, when some of our group play will resume, players will get back to the clubhouse sooner by way of a double tee start than a straight tee start, in some cases by up to an hour.
5 - Those choosing to play only 9 holes or less will have more times as we can start play off #1 AND #10, thus more players.
We ask that you understand that if we don’t experiment it on an active day, we will never know the correct decision to make as we move forward the rest of the summer, especially with the goal of getting more members out to play.
Lastly, we have no idea as yet when guest play will be permitted, as YOU; our member is our first priority.
We will keep you informed as best and fast as we can as to the path we will take and in advance, thanks for your cooperation and understanding in these ever changing and demanding times.
