News from the VGA and the VSWGA about your GHIN accounts!

In January 2021, the USGA will require digital profiles for all golfers accessing the GHIN mobile app or GHIN.com. Digital profiles are a unique email and password connected to the golfers profile and GHIN number. Golfers who do not have a digital profile when this feature is released will not be able to access the mobile app or ghin.com and will only be able to post scores through the club kiosk or club admin.

HOW DOES THIS EFFECT YOUR GHIN through OCC . . .

Please click the link below to check the list for your name? If you are on this list, you will not lose your GHIN, but you won’t be able to look it up on your own over the winter.

News from the VGA

Hello Everyone,

We have been receiving many questions about certain guidelines and restrictions and we would like to clarify them for everyone.

Only Vermont residents are allowed to play golf in Vermont, unless that individual has met the minimum 14-day quarantine requirement. Meaning that person has entered the state of Vermont and quarantined in the state for a minimum of 14 days.

Golfers must adhere to the limit of one person per cart, unless the two golfers share the same residence (spouses, siblings, room mates, etc…)

Please limit all gatherings to 10 people or less (practice range, putting greens, parking lot, etc…)

For guidelines and restrictions regarding retail and food and beverage please click here.

Adhering to the guidelines and restrictions of Phase 1 will go a long way to get to the next phase of golf.

Stay safe and healthy!

Kind regards,
VGA Staff

The VGA COVID-19 Guidelines for Safe Operations in Vermont

Notes from Josh Olney, PGA

Good news is we are prepared, with a few things in the works. Here is a quick summary.

  1. OCC is opening, Thursday, May 7th.
  2. Rental carts will be available, 1 rider per cart. The Pro Shop staff will be in charge of the disinfecting process, not the customer.
  3. If you have not purchased a membership, you will need to pay your dues or greens fees before play.
  4. Posting information is in the works and will be managed over the next several days.
  5. Tee times will be required and all payments will need to be over the phone or online per the requirements.  No one will be able to make a tee time unless you are a member or have paid on line, as the system will not allow it. Please be patient, as we are sure there are kinks to work out.
  6. The clubhouse and pro shop are closed with the exception of the bathrooms. Locker room accessibility is in discussion. Call the pro shop from parking lot.
  7. Drinks will be available for “to go” only.
  8. No food service at this time.
  9. Contact Us:     Pro Shop phone (754-2333)     Bar phone (754-2497).
  10. As we have more information, it will be posted.
  11. All golf courses must adhere to the restrictions outlined by the state.
  12. Follow our e-blast and follow us on Facebook.

Thanks,

Josh Olney, PGA
