Fox Hollow is Ready For You!

Buckle up, because this will be a long read.  But it will also be the most important thing we’ll ask you to read all year.  If you want to help out Fox Hollow and the MN golf industry, please read and follow the guidelines below.  If golfers don’t follow the rules, MN courses will be shut down.

Golf Course/Cups/Flagsticks

First, the normal news:  The golf course is in great shape. The main reasons you like coming to Fox Hollow–the fun layout and consistently excellent course conditions–will continue to be your favorite parts of the club.  Now for the course changes:

 1. We’re removing touch points all over the course, so you won’t find bunker rakes, benches, water coolers, ball washers, etc.

2. Cups on the greens will be sunk to normal levels. We’ve outfitted each flagstick with a disk that won’t allow your ball to drop to the bottom. You’ll be able to grab your ball without touching the side of the hole or the flagstick. And speaking of flagsticks, DON’T TOUCH THEM.

Golf Cars

Golf cars will be available to rent, restricted to only one rider per car, unless you’re from the same household. We encourage you to walk if you’re able, to allow us to save golf cars for golfers who most need them. We have procedures in place to clean and disinfect the golf cars before each use. You are welcome to bring your own wipes or cleaning supplies if desired.

Practice Range

The range is open. We will not be using the ball machine, baskets, or tokens. Instead, when you arrive at the club to use the range, please call the golf shop (763-428-4468 x.7) with a credit card number. We will charge you based on the time you plan to hit balls, and assign you to a numbered hitting stall.

Making Tee Times

The same options still apply for making tee times. Online times are available at the link below, and will be the best option due to the heavy phone traffic we’re expecting throughout the season. And calling the golf shop will still be an option for making tee times.

Golf Check-in

We have three options when you’re ready to check in for golf.

1. ONLINE–When you make an online tee time, you’ll receive a confirmation email with a link to pay online.  You can add a credit card to your online profile at any time to make future Fox Hollow check-ins faster and easier.

2. BY PHONE–When you’re ready to check-in, call the golf shop with your credit card number.

3. TOUCH-FREE TURN SHACK–If you absolutely can’t pay ahead of time, we have a touch-free terminal to swipe your credit card at the turn shack by the first tee. We’re using this as a last resort so that lines don’t form at the turn shack.

Scorecards

There will not be paper scorecards available for use. The best option will be to download our Fox Hollow Mobile App, which has a scorecard with hole descriptions, course GPS, and a bunch of other great features. If you must use a paper card, here’s the link to a picture of our scorecard that you’re welcome to print out on your own (BYOPencil).

Bathroom

The clubhouse will be locked. There will be one bathroom available on the north side of the turn shack. We will be cleaning and disinfecting bathroom surfaces throughout the day. Please bring your own hand sanitizer if desired.

After Your Round

When you’re done golfing, please return to your vehicle and leave immediately. It sounds harsh, but it’s necessary if we want to keep golf as an essential outdoor activity in MN.

Social Distancing–HELP US STAY OPEN!

We’re excited to be open and we want to stay open for the rest of the season. Please help us by keeping your distance from Fox Hollow staff members and other golfers. If golfers are not abiding by the distancing rules set by the state, the entire MN golf industry will be shuttered.

THANK YOU

for your patience as we work through the new procedures outlined above. We still see golf as an escape into nature where we can temporarily forget the crazy world around us. The social aspect of the game will be different this season, but the fun and challenge of the game will remain.

Here’s to a memorable 2020 golf season!!!
