COVID-19 Golf Course Update
April 24, 2020
The Canyon Lake Golf Course is now open for daily play. However, there are strict limitations in place imposed by both Riverside County and the City of Canyon Lake.
Limitations imposed by the County and the City include the following:
- No more than one person may use, or be present within a golf cart at any time (including family members). This is required by the County revisions.
- All persons (who do not reside in the same household) must maintain at least six feet distance from each other at all times.
- All persons shall wear face coverings such as scarves (dense fabric without holes), bandanas, neck gaiter, or other fabric face coverings unless you are with members of your household, or practicing six-foot social distancing.
Now that the Golf Course is open, non-golf walking the course is no longer permitted.
The Canyon Lake POA has adopted these emergency rules to mirror the County and City requirements. Failure to comply with these requirements is punishable by law and could incur civil penalties of up to $1,000. Additionally, any persons found not complying with these requirements will be banned from the course for 30 days. The Canyon Lake POA is also required by the City Amendment to patrol and enforce these strict requirements. Community Patrol staff will be patrolling the course to ensure compliance.

Riverside County has released revisions to their COVID-19 orders on Golf Course closures, today - which can be viewed here: https://www.rivcoph.org/.../Riv-EOC_20200420_164329.pdf. Effective immediately, Public and Private Golf courses in the County can now re-open with some very strict limitations.
Some of those restrictions are: Face coverings must be worn at all times. One person per golf cart. Six-foot separation at all times. All Courses must fully implement this "Park and Play Program", available here: https://www.ngcoa.org/info.../covid19/park-and-play-program
Before the CLPOA can re-open our golf course, the City of Canyon lake will need to revise its emergency orders, and we will need to prepare our facilities to meet these requirements. Some of the Park and Play program requirements have already been implemented by our team. It is conceivable that our course could be open again in the very near future. We will continue to update our members as this develops.

The Canyon Lake Golf Course is currently closed. On April 2, Riverside County Public Health ordered ALL county golf courses to remain closed until June 19 (click here to view order). City Code Enforcement and Canyon Lake POA Community Patrol will be monitoring the course during this time.
Memberships will be extended the length of this course closure so that all annual golf members will still receive a full 12 months’ worth of play under their membership.

We have been closely monitoring developments related to the spread of COVID-19. We are highly committed to the health and safety of our customers, business partners, employees, and the surrounding communities we serve.
The City and Canyon Lake POA Management and Board of Directors have determined that the Canyon Lake Golf Course will remain closed until the Statewide Stay at Home Order is lifted, or the current situation changes. City Code Enforcement and Canyon Lake POA Community Patrol will be monitoring the course during this time.
Memberships will be extended the length of this closure so that all annual golf members receive a full 12 months’ worth of play under their membership. Monthly membership payments will continue during this time.
We believe this change is a necessary precaution to eliminate the risk of any further public transmission. We are closely monitoring the evolving situation and will keep you apprised of any additional changes to our current action plan if it becomes necessary.
