Both Topgolf in Oklahoma City and FlyingTee in Tulsa, two golf and entertainment venues that serve thousands of Oklahomans, will remain open with increased attention paid to safety for their customers during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Topgolf, which has a facility in Oklahoma City, referred Golf Oklahoma to the following release on its website.
“As always, Topgolf is committed to protecting the health, safety and well-being of our Associates, Guests, and those around us. We continue to closely monitor the COVID-19 (commonly known as coronavirus) situation and are taking steps as one team to help our community stay safe and healthy based on the recommendation of the CDC, WHO and local regulatory agencies.
Across Topgolf, we have taken several additional precautions out of an abundance of caution:
- We are closely following guidance from the CDC and local health departments across our venues and offices worldwide.
- We are reinforcing illness prevention procedures with all Associates as recommended by the medical community, including frequent handwashing, avoiding contact with your eyes, nose or mouth with unwashed hands, and avoiding close contact with people who are sick.
- We are instructing Associates who are exhibiting symptoms of illness to stay home or seek care from a medical provider when necessary.
- In accordance with government guidelines and CDC recommendations, we have restricted all non-essential business travel and are closely reviewing all other travel by our Associates.
Additionally, at our venues across the globe, we have implemented enhanced protocols for cleaning and sanitizing our equipment and locations including:
- Conducting regular and frequent disinfecting of high-touch areas (including golf clubs, screen surfaces and countertops)
- Supplying additional hand sanitizer throughout the venue
- Providing disinfectant wipes to Guests upon request
FlyingTee, located in Jenks at Riverwalk Crossing, also emphasized steps it is taking to make certain customers are safe. Following is a release from Golf Suites, which took over management of FlyingTee this winter.
“The current coronavirus has all of us on high alert, and we are monitoring the situation at our location along Riverwalk Tulsa closely. The safety of our guests and team partners is a top priority which is why strict safety and sanitation steps are a standard at our venue with regular cleaning of our bays, clubs, balls, equipment and other common areas. We keep our team partners up to date on the latest information to ensure they stay healthy or stay home based on CDC guidelines.
“We even help put the fun in serious when it comes to keeping our guests and team partners healthy. In place of a handshake, we recommend the foot shake; it even works as a great dance move. Hand sanitizer dispensers can be located, throughout our venue, to ensure that cough or sneeze the Oklahoma wind kicked up can be handled. And with restrooms on every floor washing your hands is as satisfying as a hole-in-one.
“Based on our company values coupled with our standard operating procedures and additional guidance provided by the local health department, we strive daily to ensure our venue remains as safe as possible.
