Renwood Golf Course will be open for golf starting May 1, with the following restrictions from the Illinois Department of Commerce as part of the Stay at Home Order.  These restrictions will run through May 30:.

When you arrive at Renwood Golf Course, call the pro-shop to check in and pay over the phone with a credit card if you are not pre-paid.  There will be no need to arrive more than 15 minutes before your scheduled tee time as the driving range and practice green will be closed.  Players will be called to the first tee by a PA system on the east side of the clubhouse.

There will be a limited amount of food and beverage available for pick-up and carry-out only by calling the clubhouse when you are near hole numbers 1 and 10.  Orders and payment will need to be made by calling and paid for with a credit card. To avoid touch points, there will be no product in the vending machines and no water fountains available.

Pins, sand rakes, etc. To avoid touch points on the course there will be no ball washers, and no sand rakes.  Please smooth the sand with your feet as you exit bunkers. Do not touch the pins or remove them from the cup.  We will have swim noodles in the cup to prevent the ball from falling to the bottom of the hole.

Maintain social distancing. Please show respect to all other guests and staff and maintain social distancing on and off the golf course.  Please avoid hand shaking at the beginning and end of your round.

In the event of inclement weather we ask people to go directly to their vehicles.
