COVID-19 Policy & Expectations

The spread of the COVID-19 virus around the world has raised concerns for everyone in these trying times. The Clear Lake Golf Course recognizes that the number one priority during these times is the well-being of our staff and customers. We want you to know that your health and safety will remain our top priority as this situation continues to evolve, especially as it approaches the 2020 golf season.

We know that everyone is anxious and excited to golf and we are very happy to invite you back for another golf season at Clear Lake. However, we ask that all of our golfers thoroughly read, understand and promise to follow and respect our COVID-19 protocols and any additional course specific protocols you may encounter.

Golf provides the community with a place for outdoor exercise and much needed positive mental health stimulation during this difficult time. Physical distancing can be easily achieved throughout the golf course and we ask that you please respect all golfers and workers around you. We are happy to invest in the new adaptations so that we can bring a safe outdoor activity for the community.
