Sandridge Golf Club to reopen under new guidelines May 1

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — Sandridge Golf Club will reopen under new social distancing guidelines and increased cleaning the morning of May 1, county officials said Thursday.

The guidelines are an effort to prevent the spread of the coronavirus, or COVID-19. Sandridge Golf Club, operated by the county, has two golf courses.

The golf courses were previously closed because of coronavirus public health concerns. The new rules will aim to limit person-to-person contact, officials said.

County officials said all tee times must be booked and pre-paid on the Sandridge Golf Club website.

Golfers must ride solo in golf carts. But, customers playing with their spouse or children may ride in the same cart, officials said.

Officials said all players will be responsible for bringing their own golf equipment to a designated area. Staff will increase cleaning measures by removing bunker rakes, wiping down each cart with sanitization solution, and requiring flag sticks to not be removed or touched by customers.

The pro shop and café remains closed until further notice, officials said. All food and beverage sales will be available at the mobile beverage cart, officials said.

Staff will only accept debit or credit cards. Cash transactions will not be allowed, officials said.

The public golf course in Sebastian remains open under social distancing guidelines, Lt. Timothy Wood said. There are no public golf courses in Fellsmere, Indian River Shores or the Town or Orchid.

The city of Vero Beach does not operate any golf courses, officials said. Those who want more information can visit the Sandridge Golf Club website or call 772-770-5000.
