COVID-19 Protocols


Please follow the guidelines below:

  • County Rule - The county rule is no longer in effect. Maine golfers may now play golf at any course in the state of Maine.

  • Range and Practice Green- The range and practice green are now open. Please do not share or reuse golf balls from or on the range. While on the range or practice green, please maintain 6 foot distancing at all times.

  • Masks- Any time you enter the Club House you must wear a mask or a face covering. 

  • Pro Shop- The Pro Shop will be open on June 1st with a limit set for 4 customers maximum inside at one time. If you enter the Pro Shop, you must maintain a 6 foot distance. Please observe the lines on the floor for distancing and flow of traffic through the space. If there are already 4 people in the Pro Shop you must wait outside until someone exits the building (there are lines outside where you can line up at a distance).

  • Score posting- The GHIN computer will not be available for use. We recommend posting your scores online. If you are unable to post them online, please call us and we will post them for you.

  • Tee times- Every golfer must have a tee time prior to arriving at the course. No walks ons will be accepted. Tee times will go to 10 minute intervals effective Saturday, June 6th. Please maintain appropriate physical distancing while waiting for your tee time. Cancellations must be made 24 hours in advance for all tee times, both members and guests, to avoid being charged for unused tee times.

  • Grill Room- Curbside service is available now. Starting June 17th, limited dine-in and outside seating will be available.  Please use the lines on the floor to keep 6 foot distancing and follow the arrows directing the flow of traffic.  You must wear a face covering when not seated.

  • Bathrooms- Bathrooms are available in the the Club House, but there are no portable restrooms available on the golf course. Please use only the entrance with the bathroom sign on it in order to maintain proper safe distancing. Yes, you must wear a face covering.

  • Scorecards- A scorecard and a pencil can be requested in the Pro Shop. We continue to recommend that you use smart phones for scoring.

  • Personal protective gear - We suggest that all golfers wash their hands prior to arrival at the course and that they hand sanitize frequently throughout their round. All golfers are required to carry a cloth or disposable face covering for use when they are unable to maintain proper six-foot distancing.

  • Golf Carts - Golf carts are available on a first come first served basis. No more than one person may ride on a cart at a time unless the two people riding are part of the same household. Our carts will be sanitized before and after each use.

  • Golf Course - The cups have been filled with a foam spacer, to eliminate the need for retrieving your ball in the hole or touching the flag stick. DO NOT remove the flag stick. There is a “no touch” protocol in effect. The ball is deemed to be holed when it hits the foam spacer. The water coolers, bunker rakes, ball washers, and trash cans have been removed from the course. We suggest that you bring your own drinking water. Preferred lie in all bunkers and smooth bunkers with your foot or club. You are responsible for the removal of your own trash, which can be placed in designated trash cans outside the club house.

  • Other Information - No golf instruction or clinics will be available at this time. At this time, we are not able to provide club/bag cart storage and cleaning or locker rental. Golfers will be required to handle and care for their own bags, staff will not be allowed to do so. Should anyone already have clubs/equipment being stored at the course they must call the pro shop and arrange to remove it as soon as possible.


Management and staff at Gorham Country Club thank you ahead of time for following these state-mandated COVID-19 safety practices.
