Updated Sunday, March 22
For the time being, Southers Marsh Golf Club will remain open for golf. This is subject to change at a moment’s notice. We are also open based on the weather – if it is cold or wet at all during the day, please check our website, twitter, or call 508-830-3535 before coming over.
Being open is not a decision we have come to lightly. COVID-19 is a pandemic and there is a State of Emergency in Massachusetts and the nation. There are real risks involved. However, we feel people can hold true to the principles of social distancing and play golf at the same time.
If you would like to prepay for your round of golf to avoid coming into the clubhouse at all, please call 508-830-3535 and give your credit card information over the phone.
There will be some necessary modifications to your golf experience. We are striving for a “touch-free” round. We have removed the bunker rakes, divot boxes, and water coolers from the golf course. We are asking people to putt with the flagstick in rather than touching it and removing it. We will not be pairing up twosomes or singles with each other so you will not be playing with strangers. We are recommending walking, but if you want carts for each individual player, we will accommodate that. Obviously, we will not have dine-in food or beverage service, so we will be serving prepackaged food and beverage only to bring onto the course. We will be diligent in wiping surfaces, door handles, faucet handles, and any other touch points in the clubhouse. We will be sterilizing cart steering wheels, handles, and seats. In short we will be doing our best to limit your exposure. Fortunately, golf is an outdoor sport played with up to a maximum of 4 players at a time.
Please use your own best judgement. If you are at a higher risk of getting seriously ill from this disease (you’re older, and/or have chronic medical conditions like heart disease, diabetes, or lung disease) please don’t come to Southers Marsh until this pandemic is behind us. If you feel sick, please do not come to the course.
We are hoping we can offer a small haven with some sense of normalcy in this crazy world. Please stay safe out there.
