Playing golf during COVID-19:

We want you to feel safe when you join us for the 2020 FORE Ouachita Golf Tournament. Golf is actually one of the lowest risk activities you can do during the pandemic. We are taking extra precautions to decrease the chances of spreading COVID-19, including:

  • All golf carts are single rider. Family members and business associates who work in the same office may choose to ride together in a cart.
  • Pocket hand-sanitizer, provided by Rainwater, Holt, & Sexton, will be included in all tee gift bags. Players are asked to use it frequently to clean hands and golf equipment.
  • Each player will be given a Ouachita Baptist University facemask to wear while in the clubhouse or where social distancing may be difficult.
  • All golf carts will be sanitized between the morning and afternoon flights, with special attention given to the steering wheel, seats and cup holders.
  • Neither Ouachita staff nor Chenal Country Club staff will touch your golf bag or equipment. When golfers arrive to tournament, it is the player’s responsibility to load their cart. Carts will be labeled for each player.
  • A boxed meal will be provided and snacks will be included in your tee gift bag.
  • Players are asked not to touch the flag stick, bunker rakes. You can use your feet or club to smooth out footprints, or any other equipment on the course.

We ask each player to check his or her temperature before arriving at Chenal Country Club to play in the FORE Ouachita tournament. If a player does not feel well, has been exposed to COVID-19 or exhibit any virus symptoms, we ask that the player withdraw from playing in this year’s tournament.

If FORE Ouachita is canceled due to COVID-19, the tournament will not be rescheduled.
