RESUMING OPERATIONS: GOLF UPDATE
As a first step toward resuming services across our clubs, we are thrilled to welcome Members back to our three golf courses with tee times available, beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, May 5. Over the past several weeks, we have been working closely with state and local leaders to define protocols for physical distancing and sanitization to keep our Members and Associates safe and healthy. We’ve also used this time to get our clubs ready for the summer season—and our courses have never looked better.
Given all the changes at our clubs during the last seven weeks, we’d like to share the below as an overview of what to expect once you arrive at the Club.
HEALTH & SAFETY
For an outline of all the new policies and procedures that we have implemented to allow for social distancing, please take a minute to download and review our Resuming Operations: The New Normal document. In addition, please plan to bring a mask to the course to comply with local, state, or federal guidelines, which may require you to wear a mask in certain areas on property.
TEE TIMES & DRIVING RANGE
We are now accepting golf reservations for tee times and driving range sessions, and we will be adjusting golf reservations accordingly: Sapphire (7 days in advance), Diamond (5 days in advance), and Platinum (3 days in advance). Please note: As services have been suspended for 45 days, the demand to get out on the course is very high. Please be mindful of this and consider limiting the number of rounds you sign up to play during these first 30 days.
If you are unable to secure a tee time online within your booking window, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your desired time slot. A member of our team will make every effort to find a spot for you within 60 minutes of your requested time slot.
During this initial opening phase, Members will be required to handle their own bags, in accordance with local health department guidelines. Please note: Members in San Diego will be required to undergo a temperature check at arrival, showing their core temperature is below 100.4 degrees before entering the club facilities.
WALKING OR CARTS
During the initial opening phase, state and local health guidelines are requiring Members to walk the course, unless they have a disability or health concern that would make walking challenging. Bay Club is recommending Members 60 years and over, or any members who feel they could possibly have a health concern by walking the course, to use a cart. Carts will be restricted to one (1) Member per cart, unless from the same household.
During this initial opening phase, state and local guidelines have specific requirements for on-course play, including no touching of the flag sticks, maintaining proper social distancing, the removal of rakes from bunkers, and all green cups inverted to eliminate the need to reach into the cup. Here is a comprehensive listing of our New Golf Set-Up and Standard Operating Procedures for your review.
Please note that food and beverage offerings will be limited during this time to prepackaged snacks and beverages. Both non-alcoholic and alcoholic options, including beer and wine, will be available.
We are thrilled to welcome you back to the Club, and we look forward to serving you. We anticipate additional services, like tennis and aquatics, will be approved to resume in the weeks ahead. And we will keep you updated as these activities become approved. Please look for the most recent communication updates in the Daily Bay and at bayclubs.com.
For questions regarding your membership or billing, please contact our Member Experience Team through the Bay Club Connect app on your smartphone, or by visiting bayclubconnect.com.
Thank you for your patience and welcome back to the Bay Club!
