New Mexico Golf Course Closure – November 13 Update

thitchcock Uncategorized

Sun Country Members,

As many of you are already aware, the governor of New Mexico has reinstated closure of all non-essential businesses. Unfortunately, this includes golf courses. This order is in effect Monday, November 16 through November 30. The order also prohibits on-site dining at food and drink establishments. The new public health order can be viewed here.

We are currently seeking clarification of the requirement of non-essential business to “reduce the in-person workforce at each business or business location by 100%” and how this impacts maintenance crews. During the previous shutdown, we were given an exception for maintenance staff to continue to maintain the courses, and we are seeking this again.

We will send out more information as we receive it. In the meantime, know that your board is working to advocate for golf and get us opened up again as soon as possible.
