POLICY & REGULATIONS
Rossman Lake Golf & Country Club is excited to welcome back all customers after a long off season. COVID-19 has spread across the world and is affecting all individuals & businesses, we recognize the significance of this and are implementing new protocols for both ourselves and customers. We ask that all golfers thoroughly read, understand and promise to follow and respect these COVID-19 protocols as well as any other protocols that may come about.
Golf is one sport that can easily be adapted to physical distancing while providing everyone with a place for outdoor exercise and some great mental health stimulation. Please respect all golfers and staff you will encounter during your time at the course. Not abiding by these regulations may result in disciplinary measures to protect our business operation and fines could be handed out. We are happy to work through these adaptions and thank you for supporting the Club and Clubhouse.

* Physical distancing is required at all times. This includes the parking lot, Clubhouse area, tee boxes, course, greens and also the entire resort.
