The golf course at Lake Lindero Country Club has drawn a steady crowd of golfers to the course and driving range these past 2 weeks since opening on May 10th. As part of the Phase 1 of the reopening of the county of Los Angeles during the Covid-19 pandemic, parks and golf courses were some of the first activities deemed acceptable for the public to enjoy.
The Los Angeles County Department of Parks and Recreations announced a trial opening of trails and golf courses but with social distancing requirements to be strictly followed. As per the rules there will be no more than 4 players allowed per tee time and each player group will be separated by 10 minutes each. And the players may not remove the flag stick during their play. Also, the sand traps will be without rakes and the ball washers will be empty, all to avoid multiple touches by players that could risk spreading the Corona Virus. To keep a safe distance from other players the putting greens and clubhouse remained closed for now.
Many families enjoy the golf at the Lake Lindero Country Club as the course is easier to play than some of the area’s larger courses. This is a 9 hole course with mostly par 3 holes. And the price to play a single round is only $16.00 for adults. That makes it the least expensive of all golf courses in the area and a great place for beginners. We see many young people on the course learning how to master the game.
The driving range is also open again and there have been some improvements to the processing of purchasing buckets of balls with more options towards payment, i.e. tokens, cash or credit. The driving range was very active on this 3 day Memorial Day weekend.
This is all a welcome change for residents of Agoura Hills and the Lake Lindero community as the shutdown of the entire club came during a time when we would normally see a lot of activity here. The tennis courts and the pool remain closed but they are anticipated to be opened shortly as the 2nd phase of countywide reopening occurs. It’s time to go play some golf!
