New Mask Requirements Mandated by State for SHCC

Due to the recent rise in new Covid-19 cases in the state, and a significant rise in cases in Lane County, the State has mandated more stringent rules regarding the wearing of masks for the entire State of Oregon.  This necessitates a change to our current mask policy for the club.
The primary changes are a mandate for wearing masks indoors, anywhere in our facility. In a press release it was stated, “The statewide requirements starts on July 1st, and will require residents to don facial protection at locations like grocery stores, shopping centers, and restaurants and bars while not eating or drinking.”
This means that all members will be required to wear a mask in the clubhouse, the pro shop, and in all indoor dining areas. Masks are also suggested for outdoor dining with larger groups, but will not be required.
In a written statement Tuesday, Governor Brown stated, “I do not want to have to close down businesses again like other states are now doing. If you want your local shops and restaurants (and businesses) to stay open, then wear a face covering when out in public.”
While we acknowledge the inconvenience of wearing a mask, due to the influx of members traveling to and from other states and social situations, we also want to err on the side of caution. Please honor this request. We have no choice in the matter, and do not want to ask a member to leave the premises over non-compliance.
Your cooperation for the safety of others, and in protecting our club, is greatly appreciated.

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.”

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.

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.

Course Open – Range Still Closed

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!

Course and Practice Facility Closed Due to Rain Accumulation

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!

New Shadow Hills Web Site Going Live

More Mobile Friendly with Updated Info

A newly revamped and updated web site has gone live as of January 1st, with a great number of changes, updates and improvements. With more and more of our members and prospective members switching to mobile devices (cell phones and pads) for their information, it was imperative that we made changes to the responsive nature of how our information is displayed. “Responsive programming” means that the site code recognizes the device you are using to view the site, and serves up a version that is best suited for that device.

The Desktop version has a similar look and feel to the old site, but utilizes more video, and organizes with drop-down menus that offer wider information than the core information pages.

The Mobile Version of the site offers a reduced navigation, with the same information as the desktop site, but with smaller sizes and a scroll-able layout.

Key “Quick Function” buttons are included on both front pages to allow members and potential members a “one click access” to the most frequently visited pages.

On both the Desktop and Mobile Versions you will find “Quick Links” to “Members Log In (member statements and info),” ForeTees, Contact Info, and Shadow Hills Extra for other member/event content.

The site will continue to evolve over the next month to include a video fly-over tour of the course and facility, as well as header graphics that change with the seasons.

The Site Address Remains the Same-  www.shadowhillscc.org
