Starting at 10 AM, May 8th, golf enthusiasts can once again try to get a hole-in-one at Carlisle Sports Emporium. The family entertainment center is now reopening their golf courses only, in accordance with Governor Wolf’s order that allows certain outdoor recreation facilities to reopen during the coronavirus pandemic. Golf will be open from 10 AM – 10 PM, Monday – Saturday and 12:00 noon – 10 PM on Sunday’s.
Carlisle Sports Emporium will have new rules in place to help keep customers and our team members safe. Upon arriving to the facility, there will be a designated entrance and exit to the building. The isles have been marked off per social distancing standards and will be regulated. Bathrooms will be available, as we ask that you, as our guest practice proper handwashing, 20 seconds minimum. Cashless transactions will be recommended but will not be required. Finally, once on the courses we ask only one group can play a hole at a time, and you must have the corresponding score card to the course you have purchased. No one will be allowed to gather on the walkways.
When it comes to facemasks, customers must wear one upon entering the building to purchase admission and pick up their ball and club. Carlisle Sports Emporium has upgraded their golf ball rental system to a contactless system. You will receive a card at time of transaction, and you will be able to go to the golf ball self-service kiosk and retrieve your sanitized golf ball, still enabling color choice! The 18th hole of each of our courses captures the golf ball and requires no rental return by the customer. Customers will also be required to mask upon club return. We will encourage patrons to wear a mask when they play the courses, however it will not be required.
In terms of sanitization changes, the golf clubs and golf balls will be sanitized after each use. There is now a separate club return at the entrance. Pencils and scorecards should be disposed of by the customer. Employees will be wearing masks and gloves and will continue to practice proper hand washing regularly.
