In light of increased reports of Covid-19 cases in Lane County, as well as across the state, and the nation, it is important to understand our role in keeping our staff and members safe. It is also important to understand the role that our County plays in tracing and reporting cases that may be associated with members and staff. The following procedures are to be followed in the event of a reported case at SHCC.
- Lane County is responsible for all contact tracing for those living within the county. If a case is reported, it may include club members as part of this tracing for someone who tests positive for Covid-19. The club is informed if this happens.
- Individual members who test positive are automatically reported to Lane County Health, and contact tracing begins, alerting others who may have been exposed.
- Lane County will call SHCC for recommended actions involving the report, but unless an employee shows symptoms and tests positive, the case remains private between the member and Lane County.
- All information regarding contact tracing, isolation and recommended procedures between members are private and confidential.
- If an employee is identified for testing positive, further actions may be taken by the General Manager and Board of Directors, to isolate or shut down aspects of SHCC operations.

It is important to note, that the safety of our Members and Staff is paramount. However, all members and staff must do their part to follow the guidelines and restrictions set by Lane County and the State of Oregon, as well as the policies set by SHCC.
- Masks are to be worn indoors, including locker rooms, club house, Pro Shop, or any other area where social distancing is difficult to manage.
- Reservations are required for ALL DINING, as an aid in contract tracing. This includes indoor and outdoor dining.
- Use Common Sense with clusters of people. You are only as safe as the people you trust to be safe around you.
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.”

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.
SEE THE NEW POLICIES BELOW
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.
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.
The rain has let up enough for resumed golf play, but the driving ranges remain closed. The short game practice facility is open, but it remains too wet to use the driving areas, due to standing water in the landing areas.
The Women’s Opener is still on today. Regular tee times will start by late morning, but be prepared for a bit of standing water in several locations.
The weather predictions are for continued drying conditions, and our course is known for great drainage, so let’s all hope for some sun soon!
While our course is known regionally for it’s amazing drainage and “all weather conditions,” sometimes Mother Nature gives you a punch that is overwhelming!
From Friday April 5th, until Monday Morning, April 8th, the course received more than 4 inches of the wet stuff. This has created a number of “unplanned water hazards” and made many of the cart paths impassible.
For this reason the Course and Practice Facility are closed. Check notices on ForeTees, or call the Pro Shop before venturing out to play a round. In the meantime, let’s hope that the rain lets up a bit, so we can get on with a great season of golf!
