Highland, Riverside Golf Courses to Open

novel coronavirus (COVID-19)

Following additional guidance from Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden and Southeastern Idaho Public Health on Governor Brad Little’s stay-home order, Highland and Riverside Golf Courses will open for play. 

Golf course staff will institute the following measures to ensure the safety of players: 

•    Passholder check-in will be facilitated without entering the clubhouses

•    Daily round golfer check-in shall be paid and completed online, by phone, or one golfer at a time and only after previous player checking in vacates the clubhouse area

•    Players must practice safe social distancing of six feet or more at all times

•    Pins shall be played “in-place” and not removed

•    Café food shall be phone-in and take-out only, and shall be secured one order at a time, and only after previous take-out order patron has vacated Café area

In a tweet Thursday, March 26 Wasden said “Golf is allowed and clubhouse food carryout is, too. The main difference is the usual pro shop check-in, reservations, payment, etc. These need to take place on the phone, online or by other means that don’t involve person-to-person contact.”
