  • Bunker rakes, benches, ball washers, water coolers & other "touchable" items have been removed from the golf course until further notice.

Sanitation Measures to be Employed on Both Golf Courses

  • All high-touch areas will be routinely, and after each use, cleaned and disinfected in accordance with CDC guidelines. Such areas include, but are not limited to, golf carts, counter tops, door knobs, other common surfaces, and other frequently touched surfaces including employee-used equipment.   Following a known or potential exposure on either golf course, procedures shall be undertaken in compliance with CDC recommendations.

  • The safety and well-being of the Parks staff, all Golf Staff and all golfers is of paramount importance. For this reason, Preakness Valley Golf Course is committed to ensuring that both of its golf courses have a sufficient number of workers to perform the above protocols effectively.

Social Distancing Requirements

  • Golfers shall at all times and, in particular, when on golf tee boxes and golf greens maintain appropriate social distancing by remaining six feet apart from others.

The above practices and procedures are subject to be modified at any time to adhere to any Executive Orders issued by Governor Murphy.
