An update on COVID-19 operations

May 18, 2020


Dear golfers,

Governor Inslee announced updates to COVID-19 operations for golf courses in our state. Here are the changes you’ll see:

  • Foursomes: We are happy to announce that foursomes will be allowed to play, effective immediately! 
  • Carts: The single rider cart rule is still in place, but you may now share a cart with a member of your household. 
  • Practice facilities: If you would like to sharpen up your golf game, visit our wonderful practice facilities, you can now do so, without having a tee time.
  • Garbage: All trash receptacles will be returned to the playing grounds for your convenience. However, bunker rakes and other high touch point furniture will stay absent for safety purposes. 

Please keep in mind, with all of these changes/updates, we will continue to practice social distancing. Our staff will continue to provide a safe environment for you to enjoy, by frequently sanitizing of all touch points and minimizing group gatherings. We also ask that you continue to be respectful and cognizant to our pro shop and maintenance staff during these times. This is a very fluid and evolving situation we are all in, and rest assured we are doing our very best to stay up-to-date with policies, while providing you, our valued customer, with the best possible service and golfing experience Spokane has to offer.

Thank you, and we look forward to seeing you on the course!

Mark Poirier, PGA

City of Spokane Golf Manager
