Opening Day – Operational Plan

To ensure a safe and clean environment to enjoy a round of golf, we will be implementing the following changes to our operational plans. Some of these will directly affect our customers and we appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding.


  • We are following the state mandate regarding masks when entering any building.
  • 2 Players are allowed to share 1 Golf Cart.
  • Hand sanitizer stations will be set up in Clubhouse.
  • All doors will be left open to eliminate touch points.
  • No more than 4 members/guests in shop at one time. We will be following all social distancing guidelines at all times.
  • We ask that you do not touch any merchandise in the shop. Our professional staff will get your size and assist where needed.
  • We will NOT be accepting cash sales. Please bring your credit or debit card for any purchases.
  • We are asking players not to touch the flag sticks.
  • Jack’s Pub is open Thursday-Sunday 11-6 for outdoor seating and to-go beer/food. Our covered outdoor patio is set up for safe social distance dining.


  • Foam noodles will be placed at the bottom of the hole. This allows the ball to go in while eliminating a touch point.
  • All Par 3 sand containers will be removed from the course.
  • All water coolers will be removed from the course.
  • All ball washers will be removed from the course.


  • Scorecards and pencils will be provided upon request. You can also download the Great Bear Golf Club App on IoS & Andriod to keep your score on your mobile phone.
  • Sand bottles and sand containers have been removed from the carts.
  • Coolers have been eliminated and will not be provided.
  • Golf carts will be disinfected every time they go out and returned.


  • All practice facilities, including the driving range, are now open.
