2022 Season – COVID-19 Update

Golf continues to be a safe & fun activity during the pandemic!

March 31, 2021

Greetings from the fairways of Wildflower Golf Course!  

We know the question on everyone’s mind, what will this season be like at Wildflower Golf Course?  While we don’t have guaranteed answers for every detail, we want to share our plans with you so far, while understanding that these plans still can and may change or update. 

Summer 2020 taught us a lot.  We learned what we can and cannot do safely; what modifications work, how to take the necessary precautions and overall, how to keep everyone safe while still enjoying the game of golf.  Thankfully most aspects of golf are naturally set-up to be “pandemic-proof!”  Therefore, we feel confident that we can take what we learned and continue to offer spectacular golf this season.  

Moving forward, based on the current Minnesota and Department of Health restrictions, considering the current state of the pandemic and future forecasts, we are moving forward with plans and contingency plans for all aspects of our services.  Bottom line however, so long as restrictions are no worse than last year, we will continue to operate nearly normally! 

Wildflower Golf

As ever, our first commitment to our guests and staff is safety and health. 

  • Golf – We will continue to minimize high traffic contact points on the course.  At this time, cups will still be modified so you don’t have to touch the pin.  Rakes, ball washers and benches will be removed until further notice.  However, the fairways, greens and other areas will be maintained to our highest quality for an excellent game of golf.   
  • Golf Carts – If you arrive to the course together, you may ride together in one golf cart.  Otherwise we will encourage separate golf carts to assist in maintaining social distancing.  All golf carts are sanitized between use.
  • Driving Range – Our driving range will open when the course opens.  We will continue to sell buckets of ball directly from the pro shop. All golf balls and buckets are sanitized between use. Please maintain proper social distancing with other golfers when at the range.
  • Pro Shop – Our pro shop will be open for in-person check-in and other transactions.  Masks are required inside the pro shop.  If you’d rather stay outside, we can assist you over the phone or through the Snack Bar window.  We ask that all persons inside the pro shop building maintain a 6-foot distance from other guests and employees.    
  • Food & Beverage – We will continue to offer food and beverage as usual with our usual menu of options.  Our bev cart will start to go out on the course in May.

Events at Wildflower

We look forward to events and tournaments at the course this year.  As large gatherings currently have some of the most restrictions imposed on them by the state and health organizations, we are working to figure out the best way to proceed with all booked events for the 2021 season.  We are evaluating current restrictions and brainstorming creative ways to accommodate our guests and events safely but still to the fullest extent possible.  Our venue coordinators and our team are dedicated to making sure each event is not only perfect but safe for everyone.  

As ever, we will continue to train our staff and improve our protocols to ensure a safe and fun experience for everyone.  We will be as prepared as possible for a successful and safe summer. 

Many of our management staff have already begun to get vaccinated and that will be the norm for our staff team this summer.  

We encourage you to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.  We hope to see you out on the course this summer!

Stay positive and test negative! 

Beth & Dan Schupp and the rest of the Wildflower Team
