“Park and Play”: Golf with Social Distancing at The Pointe Golf Club
NGCOA’s “PARK & PLAY” PROGRAM at The Pointe Golf Club
With the recent importance of “Social Distancing” to help flatten the curve of the COVID-19 virus, we can’t think of a better way to social distance than with golf. The NCGOA (National Golf Course Owners Association) has created a program called “Park & Play”. This program gives golfers the confidence that they can drive to our course, park, get to and around the course, and back to the parking lot in as safe an environment as possible. Until further notice, The Pointe Golf Club will implement this program and use its guidelines to remain open for play (abbreviated hours may be used).
