We want to thank everyone for their patience and understanding as we adjust to the “new normal” during this turbulent time. In an effort to keep our members informed of current conditions on the golf course, we are posting a schedule of play times, maintenance considerations and important updates and reminders at the starter window adjacent to #1 tee box. Please take the time to read the postings and ask questions if anything is unclear.
Pro Shop hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. every day during the season. Hours may adjust due to weather or staffing issues.
TEE TIMES: To ensure an even pace of play and accommodate members’
desire to golf we strongly encourage calling ahead for tee times or stopping
by the starter window to make tee times in advance. Many members show up without tee times arranged beforehand and every effort will be made to get you on the course as soon as possible – prearranged tee times will have priority. As always, 18 hole players making the turn from one side to the next have priority on the next side.
Mondays – the course will be open for play at 10:00 a.m. No play or tee times before that time. This is a regular accommodation for Maintenance to perform vital tasks necessary for keeping the course in great playing condition. We ask that all members give the maintenance crews consideration in this regard.
Tuesdays – Open Play, call for tee times. Regularly scheduled 9-hole Men’s and Ladies events are suspended until further notice.
Wednesdays – Ladies Day. The ladies have priority on the course until at least 11:00 a.m. Every attempt will be made to open tees times to other players depending on size of the ladies field – as always check with the Pro Shop.
Thursdays – Men’s Day. Regularly scheduled events are suspended until further notice. Men have tee time priority until at least 11:00 a.m.
Fridays, Saturdays & Sundays – Open Play, call for tee times. All events and tournaments are cancelled or suspended until further notice.
UPDATES AND REMINDERS: Every effort is being made to keep our course open and playable while adhering to Local, State and Federal guidelines during the Covid -19 outbreak.
The following are some golfing Do’s and Don’ts:
- Do make tee times in advance
- Do practice social distancing – stay at least 6’ apart
- Do be kind and respectful to each other
- Do wash your hands well and often
- Don’t congregate in groups on WEG property
- Don’t touch surfaces others may have touched
- Don’t attempt to remove flags on the holes
- Don’t handle other people’s golf equipment
DO BE SAFE FOR YOURSELF AND YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS! We will get through this together.
