Mayor Announces Update to Policy on Golf Courses

In accordance with Governor Newsom’s recent announcement, Mayor Lee Brand today updated the City of Fresno’s policy on golf courses which now expands the public’s ability to enjoy outdoor exercise.

It also opens public golf at Airways and Riverside Golf Courses. Disc golf at Woodward Park will re-open as soon as signage with the appropriate health and social distancing protocols are posted.

The new policy allows golf courses to reopen as soon as they identify and meet specific social distancing protocols including:

·        Maintaining social distancing in the clubhouse, pro shop, and tees and greens.

·        No direct physical contact between golf course employees and guests.

·        All golfers must walk the course, unless carts are necessary to meet ADA requirements.

·        All pull carts must be washed and sanitized before each use.

·        Maximum of 4 players per tee time.

·        Tee times should be spaced to regulate the number of players on the course at any time.

·        Food and beverage areas should be open for grab-and-go service or delivery.
