    Iowa GCSA Members, let's hear you!!!  Simply list what preventative measures you have taken on your facility. (ie. removed rakes, removed water coolers, removed flagsticks etc.).  Even the smallest tip or idea may help out a fellow member.  Thanks in advance!

    We have raised our cups to an inch above green level.  This will eliminate the touching of the flag or inside the cup.  There are no other amenity items on the course besides the cup and flagstick.

    In the clubhouse we are allowing a maximum of two customers at a time.  Credit card payments are encouraged.  One player to a cart whether it is private or a rental.  Beverages are to go only.  No food other than candy or chips available.  All food and beverage is to be consumed outside the clubhouse.  No seating in the clubhouse.

    Staff is required to wear gloves while handling transactions. Carts are cleaned and sanitized after each use.  Any customer contact is followed by applying a surface cleaner.  

    We're on day two of being open and it will be monitored on a day by basis.

    Were doing pretty much everything Brian listed. We are allowing family members or couples to ride in a cart together though. We closed down our restrooms as well and brought in extra port-a-johns and hand washing stations. So far the members are adapting well.
