Golf Courses and Driving Range Reopen May 11

We are pleased to announce that Monday, May 11, the Laguna Woods Village golf courses and driving range will reopen on a conditional basis.

Village Management Services is dedicated to safeguarding our community throughout the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. Golf operations will follow a new policy that allows for limited recreational access and complies with Governor Newsom’s executive order, Orange County Golf Course Guidance and other applicable health and safety requirements.  

The plan took effect Monday, May 4, as tee times and range reservations can be made seven days in advance. NOTE: All golfers must make reservations for the golf courses and driving range. No walk-ons will be permitted. 

At this time, use of the golf courses and driving range, which will be open from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily, will be restricted to Village residents only. No guests will be permitted. 

To help eliminate as many “touch points” as possible, golfers who do not have a credit card on file to pay for play must do so now. Golf course fees must be paid using the no‐touch point‐of‐sale system at the starter shack. Driving range fees must be paid using range cards. Staff will be available this weekend and next week to help with this process. Please call 949-597-4336 for more information. 

The driving range can be accessed by the pedestrian gate next to Gate 16 by walking or golf cart. Residents can park their car inside Gate 12, as Gate 16 will remain locked.

The comprehensive plan incorporates identified health and safety standards to protect golfers and staff that include: 

  • Strict adherence to social distancing with enforcement by course marshals;
  • Continued closure of golf facilities, such as the clubhouse, pro shop, restaurant, par‐three course drop‐in lounge and patio, etc.;
  • Elimination of touch points on courses and range;
  • Strategic tee time and range reservation scheduling to ensure individuals do not congregate before start of play; and 
  • Limits on group size.
