Button Hole Golf Course Reopens to Rhode Island Residents
The golf course is celebrating its twentieth year while keeping health and safety rules in place.
With state parks and businesses starting to reopen, Providence Mayor Jorge Elorza has lifted the ban on golf in Providence. Starting on Monday, May 11, Button Hole is now open daily from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Button Hole will be adhering to all Rhode Island Department of Business Regulations guidelines while celebrating its twentieth year by reopening its driving range, nine-hole golf course and bunkers.
Several precautions are already in place: Masks must be worn while playing, and Button Hole will be enforcing social distancing to keep golfers safe during this time. Golfers must also bring their own clubs, and no clubs will be rented out. Driving range hitting bays and courses are limited to the number of people allowed on them at once. Only Rhode Island residents are allowed on premises and proof of Rhode Island residency is required. No out of state cars will be allowed in the parking lot.
Button Hole’s mission to make golf affordable and accessible for everyone regardless of age, gender, physical ability or ethnicity can only be achieved by adhering to the proper techniques issued at this time. The golf course hopes that it will be able to continue to serve the community for many more years to come. Button Hole asks that all golfers follow the guidelines provided by the staff as the business navigates the challenges this pandemic has presented.
