Your safety comes first at Mid Pines & Pine Needles

Pine Needles and Mid Pines remains a retreat for golfers from all over and is now committed to a new standard in cleanliness throughout the resorts. We are all living a new age, and we want to do our part to adapt to a new way of operating with our guest’s, member’s and associate’s health and safety at our forefront. We want every guest to see and feel our increased focus on the cleanliness of our facilities and social distancing when they step onto our properties. We have updated a few aspects of your experience on property to ensure safety with maintaining an unforgettable golf experience.

All Pine Needles and Mid Pines associates will pass a health check, including having their temperature taken on-site, prior to each shift. Each associate has received training on COVID-19 safety and sanitation protocols, and receives a daily checklist that requires them to clean and disinfectant their areas throughout the day. All common areas, including restrooms, will be disinfected several times throughout the day. Door handles, handrails, restrooms, common areas, flat surfaces, phones, TV remotes and more are being cleaned with hospital-grade disinfectant regularly. Golf carts are sanitized after every use, and on course restrooms are being sanitized several times each day. We also encourage each golfer to take measures to be mindful of everyone’s safety.

Hand sanitizer is readily available throughout the resort, but we also ask that each guest brings their own to use while golfing or enjoying time off site. Plexiglass barriers have been installed around the resort where there is guest and staff interaction, including the front desk, golf shop, bar and shuttles. Social Distancing practices including, table spacing, line spacing, limiting group congregation, etc. have been implemented.

To ensure the safety of our associates and other guests, we ask that all guests take their own temperature before traveling to Pine Needles and Mid Pines, and stay home if you have a fever or are sick. We also reserve the right to take the temperature of any guest upon arrival, and will do so with a no-contact thermometer.
