PUEBLO — On Friday, Pueblo’s Public Health Director Randy Evetts announced the reopening of five golf courses in Pueblo County on Monday, April 13, 2020.

Hollydot, Dessert Hawk, Elmwood at City Park, Walking Stick, and the Pueblo Country Club will adhere to strict health and safety guidelines for residents of Pueblo as these courses are only open to Pueblo County residents.

These new modifications include tee times and payments being made online or by telephone with tee times 15 minute apart, and group sizes no larger than 4.

For golf carts, only one person allowed per cart unless riders are members of the same household. Carts must be disinfected following each use.

In addition, no bunker rakes can be used and cups shall be inverted so players are not required to touch the cup to retrieve their ball.

The pro shops, driving ranges and practice greens will all be closed.

Golf course food concessions will be take-out only.

Social distance of 10 feet must be maintained at all times between players who are not members of the same household.
