Good Morning,
I would like to share an updated COVID 19 operations guideline.
Starting today, Friday, May 15, we will allow golfers to ride two in a cart if they so choose.  They will still be encouraged to social distance at the golf course.  This change will allow people to make their own choice that stays within their comfort level.
The holes on the greens will be returned to normal depth.  A pool floatie has been added at the base of the flagstick.  This will keep the ball from dropping into the bottom of the hole.  The flagstick will remain in place at all times.
Tee markers, yardage stakes, OB stakes, and hazard stakes will be returned to the golf course.  These amenity items are very rarely ever touched by the golfer during a round.  These items will allow the golf course to be set up as close to normal when golf leagues start resuming.
There are no other changes to the operational provisions at The Muni.  We are not allowing indoor seating.  Customers are in and out in a timely manner.  These changes will not place anyone in a position where they should feel uncomfortable golfing.  Social distancing is still the main part of the equation.  We are simply allowing golfers to make a personal choice on the golf cart situation.
Golf Course staff is required to wear a mask at all times while working in the clubhouse.  This is not an option for employees.  Employees do have the option to choose to work or not to work at The Muni.  That is their decision.
I have attached the COVID 19 document with changes highlighted.  Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns.
