You may have many questions as you prepare to travel again, and we want to help! We have compiled a list of frequently asked questions and answers. Didn't find your answer? Contact us by calling 855.688.3286.

  • Yes! All 10 BOYNE Golf Courses are now open for the 2020 season.

  • Yes, golf carts are available for two riders. Face masks are required if riding in a cart with someone outside of your household. Golf carts will be sanitized before and following every use with a CDC approved Peroxide sanitizing solution.

    If you prefer to use your own cart, we will take your request, however there is a likelihood that we will not be able to provide single carts on any specific day. The cart fleets at all BOYNE Golf courses cannot sustain single cart usage. If we can fulfill your request to take an single cart, we want to inform you that a cart fee of $30 will be applied for individual use. This applies to all players (members and public guests).

  • We are continuously working to develop protocols for our courses that align with the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) "social distancing" and sanitation practices that will ensure the safety of our guests, team members, and local communities. We are following the recommendations of state government officials, National Golf Course Owners Association, Michigan Golf Course Association, and CDC in developing these guidelines:

It is also required if riding in a cart with someone outside of your household. If distanced at least 6 feet from others, face coverings are not required while playing on the course or driving range.

  • We are implementing a daily health screening for all team members reporting for work.  If a team member does not pass the screening, they will be sent home.  If team members are feeling ill or taking care of an ill family member, they are instructed to stay home. We are continuing training on COVID-19 awareness and also advising of proper health etiquette, including limiting contact with their eyes, nose, and mouth, and hand hygiene.  In our daily meetings, our teams are reminded that cleanliness starts with the simple act of proper hand hygiene. We are enforcing frequent handwashing with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are unavailable, and providing frequent breaks to wash stations and increased access to hand sanitizing stations. 



  • We take standards for hygiene and cleanliness very seriously.  On a daily basis, we are working to ensure we meet the latest guidance.  We use cleaning products and protocols that are effective against a broad spectrum of viruses, including COVID-19:

    • Public Spaces: We have increased the frequency of cleaning and disinfecting in public spaces to every two hours while operating with a focus on door handles, food counters, locker rooms, and public bathrooms.  Sneeze guards have been added to counters, and sanitizing stations have been added throughout our facilities.

    • Golf Carts: Golf carts will be sanitized before and following every use with a CDC approved Peroxide sanitizing solution.

    • Back of House: In the spaces where team members work "behind the scenes," we are increasing the frequency of cleaning and focusing on high-touch areas like entrances, break rooms, and staff offices.

  • Yes, however if possible we recommend using credit card and debit card payments. Golfing guests can also set-up Resort Charging by clicking here.
