Governor Inslee announced updates to COVID-19 operations for golf courses in our state. Here are the changes you’ll see:
April 29, 2020
Dear golf community,
We are delighted to welcome you back to City of Spokane golf courses beginning May 5!
Our focus remains on supporting the health and well-being of our customers, staff, partners, and the community. As one of the first industries to re-open, we take seriously the responsibility to provide an environment that aligns with the Governor’s requirements and recommendations for slowing the spread of COVID-19.
We are finalizing COVID-19-specific protocols that alter our operations, in alignment with Governor Inslee’s restart plan. These protocols are being developed in partnership with Spokane County golf courses and will follow recommendations from the CDC. We will share the final policy prior to opening May 5.
Downriver, The Creek at Qualchan, Indian Canyon, and Esmeralda are opening under revised protocols on Tuesday, May 5.
Here are a few operational changes you can anticipate, in place to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
When we re-open, we ask that participants please not attend golf facilities if you experience symptoms or have been in contact with someone experiencing symptoms; our staff will do the same.
Please call the course to book your tee time for May 5 and beyond. Given the intricacies of scheduling protocols right now, tee times aren’t available online, only by phone. Please have your credit card available to book your time.
The Creek at Qualchan: 448-9317
Indian Canyon: 47-5353
Thank you for your patience while we all adapt to a new normal. It will take time and care from our entire golf community working together. Protocols may change based on new information or evolving best practices. We will continue to follow the recommendations of local and state public health experts in collaboration with the City of Spokane leadership. The health of our community is number one, and we appreciate your support of City of Spokane golf while following CDC guidelines.
We can’t wait to see you (at a distance) on the course!
Mark Poirier, PGA
City of Spokane
