Tahoe City Golf Course

COVID-19 Response Operations Plan

Hours of Operation: Monday-Sunday, 9am-7:30pm. Opening May 1, 2020.

Revised: May 18, 2020

The following plan developed by the Tahoe City Public Utility District (TCPUD) is more restrictive than and in full compliance with the Placer County Health Officer’s Directive of April 16, 2020, and the supplemental guidance for Golf Course operations. It includes specific limitations on operations and access, which are designed to limit play and associated crowding and to discourage travel from out of the area. It also eliminates ALL possible common touchpoints for employees and players (except for restrooms and flagsticks). Further, it provides a safe outdoor recreation/exercise opportunity for area residents. The following plan and requirements have been posted on the District’s Golf Course website, placed as signage at the Golf Course Property and emailed directly to the District's contact list.

This plan is subject to change without notification.
