Covid FAQs

We appreciate the opportunity to give local residents an outlet to get fresh air and exercise in a safe environment. We pride ourselves in providing somewhere for our guests and employees to enjoy the game of golf, and we are open with some very important changes designed to limit contact, transactions, and touch points to ensure everyone's safety. 

Please review these Frequently Asked Questions before calling the course.

Are you walking or riding?

We are allowing walking at Sylvan Glen and riding tee times at both clubs. Single rider carts are available on request. All golf carts and pull carts are sanitized before and after use. 

Can I walk up and play?

We ask that all tee times be booked ahead of time. If you don’t have a tee time booked, you may not be allowed to play. We cannot have groups of people waiting for walk up play to be available. 

How can I book a tee time?
  • All tee times must be booked ahead of time. The easiest on our staff is to book and pay in one transaction in our online booking engines:

Sanctuary Lake booking engine
Sylvan Glen booking engine

  • Tee times can also be made by calling our reservation service at 248.619.7600. 
How do I get a refund if I need?
If for any reason you cannot make your tee time, and you booked it through our website, please log in to the online booking engine to cancel and receive a refund. If you booked directly on GolfNow you will need to cancel on their website. If those options are not possible, or you run into an issue, please email us at info@golftroy.com with the name, date and time of your reservation.

What has been done to limit grouping and touch points?
  • The clubhouses are open to guests at this time – this includes use of the restrooms at Sanctuary Lake. The temporary clubhouse at Sylvan Glen is limited to one guest inside at a time.
  • The courses have been set up to limit touch points by removing; bunker rakes, sand bottles, water coolers, ball washers, etc. The cups have been set up to stop the balls from going entirely into the hole for touchless retrieval. 
  • Rental clubs are currently not available for use. 

What should I know when I go play?

Please arrive only 15-20 minutes early to avoid creating any large groups. Once at the course you may go to directly to the starter to verify pre-payment and check-in. You may also go into the Pro Shop at Sanctuary or the temporary trailer clubhouse at Sylvan to purchase food, drinks, merchandise and to check in. Beverage cart service will be available during peak times.

Please check your temperature before leaving your house and stay home if you are sick. Social Distancing is practiced in all areas of our facility and should be practiced on the golf course as well. Do not share clubs and golf equipment with your playing partners or congregate with them in the parking lot before or after your round.

Are the driving range and putting green open?

The driving range at Sanctuary Lake remains open with all stalls set at least 6 feet apart, and the putting greens at both courses are open. Range baskets are to be returned to the Pro Shop window for the staff to disinfect. Please keep 6 feet of space from anyone else on the putting greens. 

Are the restrooms open?

The restrooms in the clubhouses and on the course are open. 

What about Pipers Pub at Sanctuary Lake?
  • Indoor seating is limited to 50% capacity. 
  • A portion of the bar has been reserved for walk up transactions only.
  • All beverages and alcohol are available for purchase, and the food selection has been limited.
  • All flatware will be single use, and condiments will be available in single serving packets only.

What about outings and events?
All our golf outings have been adjusted to the appropriate group size allowed. If you would like more information on golf outings please contact our golf shop staff.

Golfers With Disabilities
We welcome golfers with disabilities. The course will make reasonable accommodations to ensure that golfers with disabilities are able to enjoy the course. Please contact the General Manager or Head Golf Professional at the course for more information.

Tee Time Policy If you wish to cancel your reservation, Sylvan Glen requests that you do so at least 24 hours before the start of your round. However, at no point during the online reservation process will your credit card be charged by Sylvan Glen for the amount due at course. Cancellations inside the 24 hour cancellation window are subject to being charged to the credit card at the applicable rate.
New Irrigation System
Sylvan Glen Irrigation System

Breaking Ground
The current irrigation system at Sylvan Glen was put in the ground in 1966, the typical life expectancy is 30 years, and ours is over 50 years old. It has become very costly to operate due to the age and multiple repairs throughout the season. The new irrigation system will improve playability and overall golf course conditions.

What Does This Mean?
Better Golf! The new technology will be much more efficient for the golf course, it will allow for a shorter watering cycle, thus saving on electricity and also labor and maintenance. We are excited for the new irrigation system and appreciate your patience through this process.

The Course at Sylvan Glen

Established in 1922 Sylvan Glen is a traditional tree lined golf course offering four set of tees, ranging from 5,000 to 6,700 yards. With a natural setting where you’re more likely to see a variety of wildlife than hear the sounds and distractions of everyday life, Sylvan Glen offers a truly a memorable experience. Perfect for both experienced golfers and beginners Sylvan Glen is sure to become a favorite destination for all the golfers in your family.

In the winter season, Sylvan Glen also serves as an excellent venue for cross-country skiing and sledding opportunities (based upon weather). To gain access to cross country and the sledding hill, use the south west entrance off Rochester Road. The entrance is on the west side of the main parking lot. When winter sports are available the main gate leading to the maintenance facility will be open with a chain pulled across the entrance.

Camp Ticonderoga & the Golf Shop at Sylvan Glen
Right next to the putting green, Camp Ticonderoga offers casual dining in a comfortable atmosphere with a magnificent hunting lodge interior.
Adjacent to Camp Ticonderoga the Golf Shop offers a variety of top-of-the-line apparel and golfing accessories. A perfect place to also purchase a gift card for that unique gift.
