With Gov. Holcomb declaring a two-week Stay-At-Home Order through April 6 to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic, Beechwood Golf Course remains open but with no greens fees being charged, the clubhouse and restrooms closed and carts unavailable. Protocols – such as social distancing of 6 feet or more, staying home when sick, covering coughs and practicing good hand hygiene – are still very much necessary. On the course, all flags must be left in the cup and not taken out to putt.
It is our goal to allow patrons the ability to use Beechwood as an outdoor activity and be a safe outlet for recreation during these times. We will continue to monitor the situation and make adjustments, including making necessary scheduling adjustments to upcoming leagues or events, as advised by the appropriate agencies.
We encourage those in a high-risk group, including older adults and people of any age who have serious underlying medical conditions, to not visit the golf course at this time.
