Please review our frequently asked questions surrounding operations during COVID-19.


Can I walk up and play?

Walk up play is highly discouraged, since we cannot guarantee open tee times. Book in advance online or by calling 312.245.0909. Do not call the golf shops. Due to distancing requirements, staffing will be limited.

How early should I arrive before my tee time?

You should arrive for your tee time no sooner than 15 minutes in advance. If you arrive earlier, you will be asked to leave and come back. Congregating around the golf shops is not allowed.

Do I need to wear a mask?

Masks are required when entering any clubhouse or golf shop. Outdoors, you must continue to wear a mask, when 6’ distancing is not possible.

Are you allowing carts?

Carts are allowed for single riders, unless both guests reside together. Pull carts are available. All carts are first come, first served and may not be reserved in advance.

Is the driving range or practice facilities open?

Yes, under strict distancing guidelines. Some putting greens and practice areas may remain closed.

What food or beverage is available?

We are offering a very limited selection of pre-packaged snacks and beverages.

Can we bring our own beer or food?

Absolutely no outside alcohol is allowed on property. You will be asked to leave if you bring any.

What merchandise is available for purchase?

All traditional items are available.

What are your safety procedures and what can you expect when you are on site?

All common touch areas are disinfected on a regular schedule. Distancing is enforced at all times.

When will leagues start?

Leagues are being assessed on a course-by-course basis.

Are Practice and Play Program rounds allowed at this time?

Yes, but only under the strict adherence to the booking guidelines for the program. PPP cardholders may not make an advance reservation. All play is on a space available AKA standby basis. We extended the program expiration date by three months, for all PPP cardholders, whose pre-pandemic end date was after April 1st.

Do I have to follow all rules regarding distancing, closures and occupancy?

Yes, all rules are non-negotiable. Non-compliance jeopardizes our ability to stay open. If you do not follow the rules you will be asked to leave the property. Compliance is mandatory.

How do I access Sydney Marovitz or South Shore if the lakefront is still closed?

Print out a copy of your email confirmation or have it on your phone, to get through any security check points.
