New Tee Times Open 48 Hours in Advance at Haggin Oaks on the Alister MacKenzie Golf Course and Arcade Creek Golf Courses
Tee times have been difficult to get in recent weeks without planning far in advance. As most recreational activities have closed their doors, golf in Sacramento has remained one of the few activities where people can go outside and enjoy the fresh air, and a little exercise, while still adhering to social distancing. Golf has become a valuable opportunity, not only for one’s physical health but for many people’s mental well-being as well.
Since the golf course has recently seen a surge in players, making tee times more difficult to find and book online, Haggin Oaks has started a new procedure to open up additional tee times for our guests. Golfers are now being contacted 48-72 hours in advance to confirm their reservation and the number of players in their group.
The good news for you is that if a golfer cancels, those tee times are now back open online – up to 48 hours in advance – allowing more last-minute tee times to be booked. Many of these times are on the weekend or in prime time morning availability.
Are you ready to play in the next 48 hours?
We’re waiting for you!
Is it safe to play golf during this time? Golfworld recently published an article entitled, Can you play golf amid coronavirus concerns? With proper precautions, yes. According to Dr. Catherine Troisi, an infectious disease epidemiologist at the University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, golf as it’s normally played—outdoors, with natural social-distancing built-in— “would be fairly safe.”
“Social distancing doesn’t mean you’re being a hermit,” Troisi said. “Relieving stress helps your immune system and we know that physical activity boosts your immune system, so for both mental and physical health, it’s good to get activity however you can get it without putting yourself at risk. So anything outside where you’re not putting yourself in close proximity to a lot of people can be good for you. Being in nature helps your mental health, as well.”
