The City of Mission Viejo will reintroduce golf cart use at the Casta del Sol Golf Course on Friday, May 8 – a week after the course’s reopening and successful display of social distancing.
Since the course reopened with strict COVID-19 guidelines in place, the community has embraced the chance to golf while following new procedures. With many requests for the use of carts to return, the City has placed additional COVID-19 guidelines for their use.
Golf carts will be available on a first-come, first-served based on availability, and golfers will have to adhere to rules such as one person (household) per cart. Golfers will continue to be required to wear masks and practice social distancing (staying six feet apart) including with everyone in their group. In order for carts to be disinfected between each rental, patrons will be assigned a cart number and carts must always remain on the golf course. For added convenience, the facility will provide a golf bag drop-off rack by the entry gate for golfers to unload their golf bags before parking.
These extra measures have been put in place to ensure golfers are limiting their exposure to the virus and to maintain the mandated social distancing criteria. Course marshals will continue to monitor the course to ensure the strict guidelines are followed.
