The Audubon Nature Institute announced this past Tuesday that they will be re-opening their golf course to the public on June 2.Since the golf course was shut down on March 21 in coordination with the guidelines put out by the state, city, and the Centers for Disease Control, Audubon Nature Institute estimates that they have lost 44 percent of this year's self-generated operating revenue.
Regarding the reopening of the golf course and surrounding parks, the president and CEO of the company, Ron Forman, stated that "now, more than ever, our community needs parks and recreation." The reopening follows the recent opening of the Audubon Riverview Park to vehicles as well as the reopening of the tennis courts.
In terms of the golf course, visitors will be allowed onto
the premises following a number of safety measures and precautions, including
golf cart capacity restrictions, an increased sanitation schedule for golf
carts and pro shop facilities, limited food and beverages, and face coverings required
for staff members.The Audubon Clubhouse
Café will remain closed until further notice, and the pro shop will be open
limited hours: Tuesday through Sunday, from 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
On a related note, the Audubon Park Zoo is also reopening early June! For more information on all the park's planned reopenings, click HERE.
