Though this summer may not be “life as normal,” Old Hawthorne is trying to make it just as enjoyable as any summer by offering families ways to spend time together outside of their house safely. Many of the precautions implemented by Old Hawthorne are choices that give members the option to decide what they are and are not comfortable doing while at the club.
Old Hawthorne’s golf courses are still open to its members. Members may now choose if they’d like to ride in a golf cart by themself, or with another member or guest that is not a family member. Golfers can sign up to use the practice ranges for 15 minutes before heading out onto the green. Players can golf as they usually would and have the ability to choose where to leave the flagstick in the hole or remove it at their convenience. Water coolers will also be available throughout the course.
Tennis + Pickleball
The tennis and pickleball courts are open for clinics and lessons with the Old Hawthorne staff — with only six members to one instructor, and personal lessons are always available. During the time on the court, members can now handle the balls while participating during lessons.
Members are expected to clean machines once they are done using them. Cleaning supplies will be provided in the gym, and the fitness center will also be closed from 12 until 1 p.m. for daily deep cleaning. The water fountain will be available in the center for all members to use along with towels. Members will also be able to use mats but are expected to wipe them down before and after use.
The Old Hawthorne pool is no longer requiring reservations during weekday use, and the capacity has extended to 100 people at a time. Guests are allowed on weekdays at any time of the day. Weekends, however, will continue to require reservations with a 100 person capacity per swim period. Families should only sign up for their own family for the swim period they’d like to attend. No guests will be allowed on weekends.
Bar & Grill
The dining facilities will also be open to the members of the club. Old Hawthorne asks that before sitting, that guests check-in at the bar or with the hostess. Private events of up to 100 people and under are open for booking.
While this summer may not be going the way anyone planned, it’s important to find safe and fun ways to spend time with family, and of course, Old Hawthorne is here to help.
