Been reading some of the reviews coming in about no water stations and bathrooms on the golf courses being closed as part of COVID-19 precautions. I don't know if this is pertaining to ALL golf courses so call ahead of time. Also wearing a mask while playing can't help coping with the high temps. Its got me concerned about golfers getting severely dehydrated playing in this heat. Especially in Riverside County and especially in Palm Springs. So please prepare for your round accordingly. Pack plenty of water to drink and also remember to hydrate before playing.

Good post. I found the bathrooms open a Tierra R. Notice was posted about cleaning hands. I disagree with the idea of wearing a mask while on the course.

QUOTED  I disagree with the idea of wearing a mask while on the course.


I would humbly suggest wearing the kind of mask that TIES behind the neck. That way you can set the mask to fit your face at the beginning of the round. When you are in closer proximity to other players (on the tee boxes and greens), you can wear it covering your nose and mouth. When you are away from other players, you can pull the mask down (so that it hangs around your neck). That worked really well for me.

Directly on topic; One water per beer, they say.

At Dos Lagos the restrooms are open in and near the pro shop and on the course. They did take out the water stations throughout the course. Make sure you bring water or whatever hydration you need with you or get it from the pro shop. In regards to masks, I do wear it near others on the course but as a walker I do lower it when no one is around. Trying to walk up the 14th, 15th, and 16th fairway with a mask on is just plain crazy.

I get it, wearing a mask on the course is not fun. They are going to monitor this and if people are not in compliance, they will shut them down again. Please have a mask and wear it around other people so we can continue to go to the courses. Please do your best so we can continue to get out on the courses.

Perfectly stated!


Palm Springs area courses are really under the microscope. Over 2 dozen private courses in the Palm Springs area tried to defy the original stay @ home/self quarantine Riverside County Health Dept. orders and restrictions announced in mid March and remain open for play. Their argument was that they were not accepting outside play and that it was private property, for members only. The County forced them to shut down and originally said 6/21/20 was the golf course re-open date. The courses in Palm Springs are under VERY strict guidelines for re-opening and are being monitored closely for compliance.

The Marshall's are patrolling more vigilantly than I have ever seen. NOT to enforce POP, but to make sure everyone has their mask on. Signage is prominent that if you are caught w/o a mask, you will be escorted off w/o a refund. I played as a single today, and the Marshall came by to check probably a dozen times in 18 holes to make sure I was wearing my mask.

Bathrooms on the course were open. However, driving range balls, water stations, ball washers, divot mix bottles, ice chests... basically anything that multiple people would likely touch have been mandated removed as a condition of re-opening. Carts are allowed, but they have to disinfect them after every use. One to a cart is enforced unless same household.

And it's not just golf courses. Most businesses are closed. And many of the ones open will not allow you to enter their front door if you do not have a mask on. In Riverside County, a ticket for being w/o a mask in public is $1,000.

So bring your mask and expect to wear it for 18 holes if you plan on playing in the greater Palm Springs area in the immediate future. It was 103 when I finished around noon, so no, the mask was not comfortable. But it was on for all 18 holes.

The goal has always been long and straight! But since I can no longer hit them long, hopefully straighter could be achieved more than occasionally?
