On April 21, 2020, the County of Orange issued guidance to allow limited recreational access to all private and public golf courses in the County, with proper social distancing practices.  This guidance applies to the two golf courses located in Huntington Beach, including SeaCliff Country Club, which will open on Saturday, April 25; and also Meadowlark Golf Course, which is planning to reopen starting Monday, April 27. 

In discussions with both local golf course operators, both SeaCliff Country Club and Meadowlark Golf Course will be working to adhere to the County’s guidelines, which include, but are not limited to, the following health and safety standards to protect golfers:

  • All “touch points” should be eliminated, including flagsticks, scorecards, bunker rakes, and self-service areas such restrooms, clubhouses, and pro-shops where social distancing cannot be enforced.

  • Groups should be limited to no more than four people and should maintain social distancing throughout the course.

  • Tee times should be scheduled to ensure there are no individuals congregating before their start times.

  • Upon completion of their round, individuals should not congregate and 

  • should immediately proceed to their vehicles.

  • Designated golf course staff will monitor on-site activities to ensure that social distancing and standards set by the County of Orange are being followed by all staff and guests.
