  • Power and pull carts should be cleaned and disinfected after each use.
  • It is strongly encouraged that tee-times be booked and paid for via online means as a means to manage capacity and reduce the handling of payment equipment. 
  • Water coolers may be open and should be cleaned and disinfected frequently.
