Private Instruction Operating Procedures:

Lobby/Front Counter
Lesson payment online is an option.  Front counter Credit/Debit transaction only, No Cash.  Customers may enter one at a time to check in or purchase private lesson. No merchandise will be sold.
Range balls
Disinfecting each basket is time prohibitive and cost prohibitive.  Customers are provided (on the far east end of tee-line) the equivalent of a small basket for warm up.  An outside  staff person will be on the range to “scoop” and dispense the correct amount of range balls at the hitting station.  Instructors will greet student at this location.
Lobby restrooms are open; however, a table will be placed between men’s and women’s doors.  Disposable paper towels will be available to open doors and provide a “barrier” from actual touching of door handles.
