GOLF OPERATIONS UPDATE:
We want to thank all of our annual passholders and public guests for supporting local businesses like Lagoon Park and Gateway Park during this difficult time. Golf is still considered "safe to do" according to the experts and we appreciate all of you for practicing safe golf and social distancing.
Please know that the staff and management of Lagoon Park and Gateway Park golf courses continue to monitor the progress of the Coronavirus outbreak. We are intent on remaining open for play as long as we can follow all guidelines to create a safe environment for all of our guests as well as our employees.
As everyone knows, the recommendations from both state and federal offices on precautions are updating constantly. With this in mind, we would like everyone to know what we are doing at both courses to provide the safest facilities we can. Governor Ivey has imposed more restrictions on businesses but we have been deemed essential and thus continue to operate with this in mind...
WHEN PLAYING LAGOON PARK & GATEWAY PARK GOLF COURSES, PLEASE EXPECT THE FOLLOWING:
Please remember to practice social distancing - REMAIN 6 FEET APART.
DO NOT touch the FLAGSTICK leave it in the hole. Also, hole cups have been installed on each hole upside-down to eliminate the need for players to reach in and retrieve their ball.
All golf course bunker rakes have been removed. Please smooth sand divots with your foot before and after play. No penalty!
All golf course water coolers have been removed. Please plan ahead of time and take water with you on the course.
The staff will be disinfecting the clubhouse several times throughout the day.
Golf carts are disinfected before play each morning, after play each night and in between rounds if needed.
With these actions in place, please note the importance of having a reservation before arriving for play. If you do not have a reservation, especially on the weekends, there is a likelihood that one will not be available for you once you reach the course. Golf carts are being given on a priority basis to guests and groups that have reservations. Please call or reserve your tee time online ahead of time.
Thank you again for your support!
Be well and stay safe.
From your team at Lagoon Park & Gateway Park Golf Courses
