SHCC – Revised Policies on Golf, Operations, and the Need for Social Distancing

In the evolving list of orders coming down from Federal and State government, we are pleased to announce that while greatly modifying “business as usual,” are very much allowing the continuation of golf and restricted food service at Shadow Hills CC.

In the latest Executive Order, Gov. Kate Brown clarified additional business restrictions, as well as additional “Stay Home” policies for the general public.

In an effort to clarify these policies, the Executive Director of the Oregon Golf Association, reached out to the Governor’s office.  They received the following:

“Golf is allowed as long as the social distancing measures are in place, country club activities for a gathering would not be allowed. We categorized golf similar to a hike or outdoor activity, rather than through “essential travel” which is meant to stop vacations.”

Leah Horner
Regional Solutions Director
Jobs & Economy Policy Advisor
Office of Governor Kate Brown

This is GREAT NEWS for Shadow Hills CC Golfers and members.  However, to help assure that we remain within the guidelines, we are implementing the following additional policies.

Health Department Inspection Results and Policies
On Thursday, March 19th, the Lane County Health Department did their annual inspection, and SHCC passed with flying colors. We were told that we are “way ahead of others” in our practices to remain safe, sane, and open!

Without question, golf and other outdoor forms of recreation are a great way to reduce stress, remain healthy, both mentally and physically! In order to remain open, and providing services for our members,  several items were suggested.

Here are some of the bullet points that were identified:

  • All Food and Beverages must be served by a Staff Member and consumed off premises. This means all food and beverages. No loitering around the bar or pro shop with beverages.
    Takeout Food Service Will be Provided Monday-Wednesday
  • NO GATHERING on couches, tables, lobby or any other areas where separation of six feet can’t be maintained.
  • Water Jugs on the Course have been emptied. Club is furnishing BOTTLED WATER. If you want to fill your PERSONAL WATER BOTTLE- you can do so out of the ice machine near Club Care.
  • All Carts and Push Cart Handles will be sanitized between users. Please be aware that Covid-19 can remain transmittable for up to 24 hours or more after contact.
  • No groups of more than 10 can be in any of our common areas, INCLUDING Workout Room. Any classes must be moved to the ballroom, or outside.

Ron Willis Wins Much Deserved OGA Award

Every once in a while, those who toil thanklessly in the background, get their moment in the spotlight. So it was for Ron Willis, our tireless (and brave) Men’s  Handicap Chair.  Monday, October 21st, at Royal Oaks Country Club, The Annual Oregon Golf Association Awards were presented, and Ron received the “Handicap Chair of the Year” award.

There is no other volunteer job that one can take on, which carries as much “gravitas” as that of Handicap Chair. The position should come with a bodyguard, or extra life insurance. Playing almost every day, as Ron does, with the knowledge that “playing by the rules” isn’t just a personal choice, but also takes on new meaning when others around you know that they are playing with someone who is functionally in charge of “stern written warnings,” and potential disqualification from a tournament.

However, those who know Ron, know that he takes this role (as well as his service to the Membership Committee) with a smile on his face, and serious dedication to making sure that the course play is level and fair.  Ron exemplifies what it means to be a great member, a good friend, and an honest golfer…three traits that make him deserving of this wonderful recognition.

Congratulations, Ron!

Congratulations to Our Newly Elected 2020 Board Members

It was announced at our Annual Meeting, that three new candidates have been elected to the Board of Directors for Shadow Hills Country Club.  They will serve a three-year term, and serve or chair on selected committees.

Thanks to all who were nominated. Know that our membership appreciates your service.

Couples Classic Results

After a delay from the original date, due to inclement weather, a large gathering of stalwart SHCC Couples braved “iffy” weather on October 20th, to complete the “SHCC Couple Classic.”  Some very familiar names topped the leader board, proving once and for all, that the couple that plays together, wins together. Congrats to all who stayed, played, and won!
