Health & Sanitization Program

With the exception of Pebble Beach Golf Links and Spyglass Hill Golf Course, our Resort remains closed. Prior to opening our golf courses on May 4, and to ensure we could do so safely, we implemented new golf safety protocols, which are below. In addition, we developed comprehensive new health and sanitization practices resort-wide that we are putting in place prior to reopening. These practices reflect guidance from leading healthcare experts, the Monterey County Health Department and published industry guidelines. There’s nothing more important than the health and safety of our guests, employees and community and we are happy to share these new practices openly, with all.

Health & Distancing Guidelines for Our Golf Courses

We’ve recently introduced measures and guidelines at our golf courses to protect the health of our guests and employees. These measures align with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) “social distancing” and sanitation practices and help our golf courses to operate safely. All golfers must familiarize themselves with these guidelines and adhere to all health and safety practices during their visit.

Know Before Your Round


Reservations

The clubhouse, pro shops, and locker rooms remain closed. Golfers are required to pay in advance by calling Resort Reservations; no payment will be accepted on site. Also, no retail products, including balls and gloves, will be available for purchase.

Clubs & Rentals

Golfers must bring their own clubs, as no rental sets are available. In addition, guests are responsible for transporting their own clubs at all times. Signs will be installed at bag drops and around facilities as reminders for guests. No shuttle service will be provided

Driving Ranges

The driving range is open for guests to warm up within one hour of your tee time. Each hitting station will be set up ten feet apart and the balls will be sanitized every day. In addition, all common touch points such as club washing bins and towels, den caddies, shag bags, and bunker rakes will be removed. One staff member at each facility will run the operation and ensure compliance. The practice putting greens and Golf Academy building remain closed

Check-In

Golfers check in at the first tee with the starter, who wears a mask and gloves and will instruct each golfer on the importance of proper social distancing throughout the round

Care Packs

At check in, each golfer will be offered one sanitized Ziploc bag containing sanitizing wipes, a mask, tees, a scorecard, pencil, and commemorative bag tag and will be reminded of the revised protocols required to stay safe. Golfers are encouraged to wear a mask when unable to social distance, and must comply with Monterey County’s Face Covering Order

Caddies & Golf Carts

We will not allow use of caddies. Golfers may: (a) walk and carry their own clubs, (b) take a golf cart, if available, with a limit of one person per cart (except household members), or (c) bring their own pushcart. Both courses will also have a limited number of push carts available upon request. Golfers will be asked their intentions at time of booking

All golf carts will be sanitized both before and after use. In addition, all ancillary items such as towels, tees, scorecard, and pencil have been removed.

Non-Playing Guests

Non-playing guests are not allowed to walk or ride with golfers until further notice

During Your Round

Groups

Golfers may play in groups up to four players and are required to maintain proper social distancing throughout the round. In addition, multiple marshals will be on the course at all times enforcing proper social distancing

On-course Changes

All ball washers, closed-lid trash cans, and bunker rakes have been removed from the course. Golfers may play “preferred lies” in the bunkers. Sanitizer dispensers have been installed next to each water cooler to allow their continued operation in a safe manner. Golfers are encouraged to bring their own water bottles

Flagstick & Cups

Flagsticks remain in the holes and are not to be touched at any time. The holes have been filled with a contraption that allows the ball to sit at the top of the cup, from where it is easily retrievable

Food Service

Beverage carts will be available on the courses (along with the snack bars adjacent to the 10th holes) and will be operated similar to takeout service at a restaurant

Restrooms

On-course restroom facilities will be open with a limit of one person at a time and sanitized regularly, and golfers will be provided wipes to disinfect any touch points in the restroom

Photography

Group photos at the beginning of the round, during the round, and end of the round will not be allowed under any circumstances

 

After Your Round

Post-Round Services

All post round services, such as club and shoe cleaning, have been suspended until further notice.

Pebble Beach Resorts has implemented enhanced cleaning protocols and screening procedures in accordance with applicable guidance from the Centers for Disease Control in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.  Although the safety of our guests and employees is our highest priority, we cannot guarantee that our facilities and the people who work in or visit our facilities are free of the virus.  By choosing to visit Pebble Beach Resorts, you accept the risk that you may be exposed to and/or contract the COVID-19 virus on our property.
