During this time of crisis facing our nation with the COVID-19 outbreak, we are taking steps to ensure that you have the safest environment possible at Bradford Country Club. Our staff has been thoroughly trained on sanitization procedures, and we are all hard at work to keep equipment and other surfaces continually cleaned. We have plenty of hand sanitizer, soap, and fresh air to help you guard your health.

Nothing is as important to us as the health of our guests, community, and staff members. We are paying close attention to national and local guidelines, and we’ll follow best practices recommended by public health officials, including the practice of social distancing of 6′ or more. We are encouraging players to walk the course and will allow single use golf cars.

COVID-19

Dear Customers & Friends,

During this uncertain time, we are committed to ensuring our customers and team are safe and healthy, and this will be our highest priority as we continue to monitor the developments as related to COVID-19.

As part of our daily operations we have implemented “best practices” in which every hour employees are washing their hands, sanitizing common surface areas table tops and all door handles & doorways.  Additional hand sanitizer dispensers are readily available for staff and customers to use at their discretion.

As colleges and universities suspend on-campus classes, many companies allowing employees to work from home and most events cancelling, we have decided to make some significant changes to our weekend events in order to still be able to help keep some normalcy during this difficult time for everyone.

Thank you in advance for your continued support of our business.

Kevin & Kristin Murphy
