Lake Metroparks Will Open Two Golf Courses Friday

(Lake County) - Some good news, as Lake Metroparks will open Pine Ridge Country Club and Erie Shores Golf Course on Friday, April 24.

The golf courses will be opened in accordance with protocols set by the State of Ohio. These protocols and extra steps include social distancing, sanitizing, providing no-touch golf, a to-go only food and beverage operation and strict rules about entering the clubhouse. To be able to offer our customers a chance to be active and enjoy the outdoors, golfers must follow these guidelines:

· Practice CDC physical distancing guidelines (always stay six feet away from others); if you don't adhere to physical distancing rules you will be asked to leave the premises

· Book tee times by phone; tee times strongly encouraged (walk-ups may or may not be accepted)

· Credit card payments only

· No rainchecks

· Allow space between cars in the parking lot

· Arrive at the clubhouse no more than ten minutes before your tee time

· Check-in at the clubhouse, follow signage

· No physical contact at the course between golfers and/or golf course staff

· Initially, we will allow walking golfers only. We hope to allow carts in the near future.
