Announcements
Changes to the WGC Website are coming this weekend! Beginning this Sunday, April 5th, you will be redirected to our NEW website. It is a much easier site to navigate and we think you'll like it! A link to a presentation to help you navigate is available on the new Homepage and was sent to you in an email. We are making this change in response to Google format reforms that will be happening within the next year. This will give us a chance to work through any glitches there may be before Google's changeover. Please be patient with us through this move.

2020 Match Play Madness
Time to grab a partner and play some Match Play Madness! Two-person teams using full handicaps. Download the form here which has all the information you may need. Deadline for entry is April 20. 1st Round begins April 27 - May 15. We may not be able to have a bracket party, but you will be able to keep track on our website. Hopefully, the virus won’t keep us from having a blast (as usual).

Here's a fun throw-back video (Dolores Bowlin Hall of Fame video) y'all might want to check out! Lots of pics of good friends.

Changes in Golf Operations due to the Coronavirus Pandemic - UPDATES AND CHANGES (as of 3/27/2020)

Due to the latest directive from the Arkansas Secretary of Health dated March 26, more COVID-19 changes will need to be made at the POA. 

---Golf carts can only be used by one person at a time. We will have to monitor tee times based on the limited number of carts we have, recognizing that we will run out of carts. Golfers will be given a cart no more than 20 minutes prior to their tee time. This will prevent needed carts from sitting idle before a tee time. Please be patient if we run out of carts.

---We are converting our tee sheet to 13 minute tee times. Please help us and your fellow golfers by teeing off at your designated time. Even if the 1st tee box is open, please wait until your tee time. NOTE: GOLF OPS WILL CONTACT YOU ABOUT YOUR TEE TIME. PLEASE DO NOT CALL. We're all doing our best to conform to these changes.

We encourage golfers to bring their own cart or, if able, walk the course. Please note, you may choose to ride with someone you are quarantined with (such as a spouse). We appreciate your patience during this unique time. 

---This new policy will be phased in today and fully implemented on Saturday. To read the Arkansas Secretary of Health, Directive Order click here. All actions need to follow the 6 foot social distancing rule.

PREVIOUS COMMUNICATION...

Changes in Golf Operations due to the Coronavirus Pandemic - We are asking you to please communicate this with all your players in your groups. ~ Darryl Muldoon, PGA

Effective Saturday, March 21 and going through April 17, 2020, Bella Vista Golf is following the National Guidelines set by the PGA and NGF.

At This Time Golf Courses Will Not Be Closing due to the virus and we will move to having Tee Times only.
No Shotgun start times moving forward.

YOU WILL BE RECEIVING A NEW SCHEDULE REFLECTING CHANGES (WINTER AND SUMMER GROUPS)

PLEASE BE PATIENCE WITH US, WE ARE WORKING VERY HARD TO KEEP IT FAIR TO ALL GROUPS WITH TEE TIMES.

With that said, I’m asking group leaders and Members to help manage their players outside of the buildings and those wanting to come into the Pro Shops.

1.    Group leaders need to submit player lists to the Pro Shop for the day of play.
·     We are suspending the cart tag policy.
·     Please make sure the rosters that you submit are up to date.
·     Let the Pro shop know all no shows and all AGG.
2.    We will be screening customers in and out of the golf shop.
3.    Please wait outside until called upon by a Staff Member.
4.    No more than 4 people in the Pro Shops at a time.
5.    Please no congregating in social areas before and after play, if at all possible.
6.    Please be aware that we can’t always allow single riders as we will run out of carts on busy days.
·     It will be on a day to day bases and we will go according to the tee sheet.
·     Just because you see carts that have not been used at 10:08 am when you check in doesn’t mean you can get a cart to yourself. We have more players behind your tee time that we must accommodate for.
7.    Discard your scorecards in the trash can and please place your pencils in the sanitation bin upon return of the golf cart to the shed.
8.    All fresh food items as well as all poured beverages will cease until further notice.
9.    Please leave flag sticks in the hole, fewer hands that touch the flag the better.
10. All ball washers will be removed from the golf course until further notice
11. Please help us by discarding your trash at the bathrooms or when you return your cart to the cart shed, fewer hands that touch trash the better.
12. All bunker rakes will be removed until further notice.
·     The maintenance staff will rake bunkers once a day.
·     Local rule is in effect, place your ball in the bunker in a undisturbed area no near to the hole.
·     Please use your feet to level the bunker as best as you can.

Golf Operations is disinfecting all public areas to ensure that golf courses can stay open unless we are told otherwise.
