Playing It Safe at the Golf Course



In response to the COVID-19 crisis, new procedures are in place at the Goddard Golf Course for the safety of our patrons and staff. Please read this carefully before entering the Golf Course area. While we are excited to open and have you enjoy our beautiful course, it is very important that all of these guidelines are being followed.

Masks: For the safety of our staff and patrons, masks are required. This is especially important if you are in the vicinity of the Club House or on the course in any proximity to other golfers who are not from your household.

Physical distancing: If you are not from the same household group, you should maintain 6 feet of physical distance between individuals. You should also maintain this distance between staff members and anyone else you may encounter.

Tee times: NO WALK-INS. All tee times must be scheduled in advance (up to 2 days in advance) by calling 401-884-9834. If you get a busy signal, please call back. Tee times are limited to 4 people per tee time and will be scheduled every 10 minutes between 7:30 AM and 6:00 PM to prevent crowding. You must arrive within 10 minutes of your start time to avoid forfeiting your tee time. Please do not arrive more than 15 minutes early. When you arrive at the golf course, check in at the customer service window and present your ID to confirm and, if you have not prepaid, pay for your tee time. Plan to pay with exact change - CASH ONLY. A 3% convenience fee will apply to onsite credit card payments.

No Shows: If you are unable to keep your tee time, please call 401-884-9834 as soon as possible to cancel. No shows prevent others from having the opportunity to play golf.
