Birnamwood Opened – COVID-19 Style
Birnamwood’s 2020 season officially began on April 20. Opening was highly anticipated. Birnamwood made some adjustments for the health and well-being of golfers and staff. Those changes made it possible to open quickly after the go-ahead from the State. Welcome to Birnamwood’s 2020 Season – COVID-19 style.

Closed Areas
In response to COVID-19, the following areas are closed for the safety of golfers and staff:

  • Clubhouse
  • Concession Stand
  • Ball Washers
  • Bunker Rakes
  • Club Cleaning Station

Signs were placed around the course to remind people to maintain social distancing at all times. You can be physically closer if you live in the same house as your golfing partner.
That is if you really want to…

Motorized golf carts are now available to rent for your next round! Carts are rented on a first-come, first-served basis. However, golfers with health concerns can call 952-641-1357 in advance and reserve a cart for their tee time.

Birnamwood Beauty 

Meticulous planting and maintaining 3,300 annual flowers each year is a job usually taken on by Birnamwood’s wonderful gardener, Jana. Plants are ordered in the winter in preparation the next season.

Then there was COVID-19. That left thousands of flowers in the hands of Mike and Dan who are self-described as “lacking imagination.” They decided to choose the “easiest” locations possible.

That mindset created new gardens at the No. 1, No. 4 and No. 6 tee boxes. The gardens are still magnificent, just a little different. Fear not. Next year the gardens should be back to normal.

Special Shout-Out!

Reassigned staff from the Recreation Department and  Ames Center have helped to open and maintain the golf course this year. 

For many of them this is the first time they have had anything to do with golf! They met challenges head on and without them opening would not have been possible. 

Thank you for all of your hard work - Dan R.
