We have more people than ever walking on the course during non approved days and times. Walking on the course during golf play is a dangerous activity and we strongly discourage it. We know the course is a beautiful place to walk to enjoy the nature, see the wildlife and get exercise. That is why we have the walking hours on Wednesdays and Thursdays after golf. Note for the non golfers- we will have golfers out on the course well past the 7:15PM times as they typically play until dark. We have designed the walking time for you to follow the golfers so all can enjoy the course and stay safe. Reminder that dogs must be leashed and you are REQUIRED to pick up the dog poop and dispose of it in non Golf Course garbage cans.
The walking hours and guidelines are on our website and here is the main detail from the website page- link here for full detail https://www.playvom.com/the-club/walking-policies:
The afternoon walking schedule is limited to two days per week as follows:
Access to both Valley of the Moon and Sugarloaf courses – Wednesdays and Thursdays.
Start times for the afternoon walking schedule will be adjusted monthly in accordance with daylight hours.
July afternoon walk time will start at 7:15 pm on each course.
Access to each course is limited initially to the first tee and must follow the respective course layout thereafter.
Golfers with tee times before the afternoon walking schedule will be on the course continuing their golf round as normal.
No new golf play will be initiated after the afternoon walking schedule begins thereby ensuring the safety of the walkers.
Dogs are allowed on the courses during the walking schedule but must be on a leash at all times and owners are required to pick up after their dogs.
Bicycle riding is not permitted on the courses at any time.
CourseCo and the OVA ask all Oakmonters to adhere to the Walking Schedules as outlined.
Walking on the courses during golf play is prohibited.
Those who do not adhere to this prohibition risk not only potential personal injury but also hinder CourseCo’s ability to attract golf play necessary to operate a successful golf business.
