September 4, 2020


To protect the health and safety of all our guests and competitors, the 2020 Northwoods Open has a format and procedure change. Please read and share ALL of the following information to help things run as smoothly as possible. With everyone’s cooperation, we are confident it will be a weekend full of amazing golf on this beautiful property, which we are blessed to share with all of you for the 26th year of this event.

Please do not come to the Northwoods Open if you have Covid-19 symptoms (cough, fever, loss of taste/smell); If you have been exposed to someone who has tested + for Covid-19; If you are awaiting test results for Covid-19; If you have been to a bar or large social gathering in the last 14 days where social distancing and masks were not observed.

The Biggest Change
Tee Times will be used on Saturday AND Sunday starting at 7:30 am and going every 8 minutes until approx. 3:30 pm.  The tentative plan is for Recreational Men and Women players to tee-off first, then Intermediate Men and Women, then Am 65+, Am 60+, Am 50+, Am 40+, then Advanced and then Pro 60+, Pro 50+, Pro 40+ followed by Open, and finally Open Women will be last to tee off.

Any registered players who wish to cancel, must do so by Friday, August 29, 2020 at 6:00pm CDT to receive entry fee refund (minus a $10 cancellation/processing fee). If something comes up causing your need to cancel after this deadline, kindly let us know asap; however, THERE WILL BE NO REFUNDS AFTER THIS DEADLINE.
