With the recent Covid-19 (Corona Virus) situation, we will be operating under Section 5, paragraph C of the Ohio “Stay At Home Order”. Due to the mandates from the Ohio Department of Health, CDC, Allen County Health Dept, Governor, Toledo District Golf Association, and the USGA, Bluffton management has implemented the following procedures and changes. These MUST be followed by everyone or we may be forced to close:
Proshop / Tee Times
Clubhouse will be closed except for Bathroom. Enter Lower door ONLY to use the Bathroom, and stay in the cordoned off area. Bathrooms will be cleaned and disinfected hourly, or as mandated.
We are taking tee times ONLY via phone and website, prepaid prior to your arrival by Credit Card or Club Credit on file, unless you are a SEASON PASS HOLDER. Season Pass Holders can make a tee time online, then use a Credit Card or Club Credit to pay for Carts if necessary upon arrival.
Anyone can place their card on file in our system. It is PCI compliant and we do NOT have access to your card info, only the processing bank stores it encrypted. This will allow you to call or make prepaid tee times in the future as well.
Season Pass Holders may purchase Club Credit with a BONUS. for just $200 and you will receive $230 of Club Credit on your account, which can then be used to pay cart fees (when you call to make tee times) or for anything purchased while at the course, without any money or cards changing hands.
The practice green and range will be closed until further notice.
Mon-Fri Tee Times will be from 10:00am- 5:00pm and Sat-Sun will be 9:00am-6:00pm.
Tee Times are 12 minutes apart.
Please check yourself for a fever before you arrive at the golf course. If you have a fever, cough, or feel sick, please stay home and follow Health Department Guidelines.
Please arrive 10 minutes prior to tee time and check-in visually with the staff at the club house window (East side by snack bar / Putting Green).
Please do NOT arrive more than 10 minutes prior to your tee time, or remain at the course after your round is completed.
Avoid contact with others and do NOT approach the first tee until your assigned tee time.
If you are family that live together and/or drove together to the golf course then you can ride in the same cart. All others will be assigned separate carts.
We encourage everyone to consider walking the golf course to help the Social Distancing situation and improve your own health.
We have limited supplies of golf accessories, drinks and snacks, due to all the uncertainty right now.
Please remain at least 6 ft. from other golfers at all times.
All carts are sanitized BEFORE and AFTER rounds.
The course will be CART PATH ONLY until the weather changes.
No flag sticks can be touched! We have implemented a Foam Rubber Bumper (Pool Noodle) system which prevents the ball from going completely in the hole. If your ball hits the bumper inside the hole, around the bottom of the flag, it is considered HOLED OUT. This is compliant with the New Ruling from the USGA. The GHIN system is taking these into consideration.
Please refrain from shaking hands, before, during, and after your rounds. Please be kind, but everyone understands the current Social Distancing Situation.
There will be NO SOCIALIZING ALLOWED after the round. For the safety of everyone, and in compliance with Ohio’s “Stay At Home” Mandate, we can’t allow groups to gather for drinks after the round is completed.
Enjoy your round! God Bless Everyone
