Santa Teresa Golf Club : The Next Generation of Golf is Here

Santa Teresa Golf Club Covid-19 Protocol

Hello Friends,


The door is open to welcome you back home.   We are happy to announce that Santa Clara County has deemed it safe for golf to resume at Santa Teresa Golf Club effective May 4, 2020, with required operational changes, sanitary practices and strict social distancing protocols.  We will be limiting customer access to the property to only those who will be playing golf on the 18 hole course, 9 hole course or hitting balls on the driving range.   And as part of this process, for the first time ever, customers will be able to book tee times on the 9 hole course on the day of play.  Our reopening will be managed to help control social distancing while being cautious of contact points and implementing other potential restrictions. Our number one priority is to follow the protocols provided by the County and various health agencies in order to provide a safe environment for our employees and customers. The front gate will be opened at 7:30 AM and closed at 8:00 PM daily.
