Valley View Golf Club Club Update
Dear Valley View Golf Club Members and Guests,
After careful consideration and discussion with City officials, it has been determined that Valley View Golf Club will re-open on Thursday, April 9.
Several weeks ago Governor Holcomb announced a “Stay at Home Order” that was originally set to expire on April 7 but has since been extended to April 20. In one of my earlier transmissions, I outlined the FAQ section of his announcement which asked, “What is an essential activity?” Here it states, in part, essential activities include but are not limited to activities for health and safety. Under the guidelines, golf is considered an outdoor recreational activity and is permitted provided appropriate protective measures are followed.
For VVGC to stay open it is imperative that members, guests, and staff strictly adhere to the Social Distancing protocols. Social Distancing at VVGC includes no congregating anywhere on the property to include, but not limited to, the putting green, chipping green, anywhere on the course, at check-in, parking lot, or in any other commonly used to congregate under normal situations.
Until further notice please be advised of the following:
- The VVGC building will not be accessible for any reason except by staff.
- All pro-shop transactions will be done outside the building.
- There will be no food and beverage sales from the building.
- When possible, we will provide a food and beverage cart. In such instances, please respect appropriate distances around the cart.
- Rakes and sand bottles have been removed from the course.
- Golf holes will be arranged in such a manner that your ball will not go to the bottom of the cup.
- Only one person per golf cart regardless whether the cart is VVGC owned or privately owned (this does not apply to family members of the same household).
- Golf carts will be sanitized before each use.
- Golf carts will only be available from 8:00am 3:00pm.
VVGC will do everything possible to provide a safe environment for you and it’s up to you to do the things necessary to remain safe and help keep others safe.
- If you aren’t feeling well, please stay at home and take care of yourself.
- Practice good hygiene by washing your hands thoroughly.
- Practice Social Distancing.
John D. Goldman, President
