(Press Release, March 27, 2020)

Following additional guidance from Idaho Attorney General Lawrence Wasden and Southeastern Idaho Public Health on Governor Brad Little’s stay-home order, Highland and Riverside Golf Courses will open for play.

Golf course staff will institute the following measures to ensure the safety of players:

• Passholder check-in will be facilitated without entering the clubhouses
• Daily round golfer check-in shall be paid and completed online, by phone, or one golfer at a time and only after previous player checking in vacates the clubhouse area
• Players must practice safe social distancing of six feet or more at all times
• Pins shall be played “in-place” and not removed
• Café food shall be phone-in and take-out only, and shall be secured one order at a time, and only after previous take-out order patron has vacated Café area

In a tweet Thursday, March 26 Wasden said “Golf is allowed and clubhouse food carryout is, too.  The main difference is the usual pro shop check-in, reservations, payment, etc.  These need to take place on the phone, online or by other means that don’t involve person-to-person contact.”
