Fairfield Glade Reports Over A Half Million In Loses

/ The Upper Cumberland's News Leader

Fairfield Glade Resort golf courses lost over half a million dollars in revenue after being closed for forty days.

While Fairfield Glade has slowly begun to open for visitors, Golf Director Jeff Houston said the closure has been surreal.

“It’s a unique deal,” Houston said. “You never in your life picture not playing golf in the month of April in Fairfield Glade. You couldn’t do it with weather, but you could do it with this pandemic.”

Resort restaurants have limited to take out, and shops are allowing no more than six people at a time. Houston said the community has followed the government guidelines and said people feel safe using local facilities.

Golfing restrictions include one person per golf cart, pool noodles over flag sticks to reduce touching, and eliminating water coolers and bunker rakes. Houston said tournaments have been cancelled or postponed.

“We’re taking it tournament by tournament,” Houston said. “We’ve postponed a few of our events that was in April and we’ve moved them to September. Our next event is at the end of May, we feel like that will go on with the social distancing guidelines, one person per cart, things like that.”

The first state event will be on schedule for June 9 and 10.
