BIRCK BOILERMAKER GOLF COMPLEX COVID-19 UPDATE

MARCH 24, 2020 UPDATE

In these unique times, the Birck Boilermaker Golf Complex will do everything in our power to remain open for play on the Ackerman-Allen Course.

As of March 25th, the Ackerman-Allen Course will be open to walkers only.  No carts or push carts will be available to rent. If you have your own personal push cart, please feel free to use it.

From now through at least April 7th, the Birck Boilermaker Golf Complex will be partaking in efforts to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, practice social distancing, and provide a recreational outlet for all.

The Birck Boilermaker Golf Complex will be taking the following precautions and steps:
  • All payments for greens fees will be made online. To make your tee time and payment online, please follow these steps:
    • Visit our website, www.purduegolf.com.
    • Under the "Play" tab, click on "Book Tee Times". You will also see a gold bar that says "Book a Tee Time". That bar will appear on any screen on the website. Feel free to use that as a way to book you tee time as well.
  • This will open up a calendar on Chronogolf, this is our tee sheet provider. Choose the date that you would like to play, 18 or 9 holes, and how many golfers you have playing. If you have an account with Chronogolf, you may log in with that. If not, you will be asked to create a new customer profile.
  • Once you have selected your tee time, it will ask for you to enter a credit card for payment. If the payment amount that pops up looks incorrect to you, please call us in the Pro Shop at 765-496-9313 and we can work through any issues you may have.
In addition to the online payment of greens fees, the Birck Boilermaker Golf Complex is taking further precautions to help keep everybody safe:
  • On the course, all cups will be raised out of the green. When you putt on the greens, if the ball hits the cup, count it as good. Please avoid touching the flag sticks as well.
  • The front doors to the Pete Dye Clubhouse, Pro Shop, and restooms on the Ackerman-Allen Course will be locked. A member of the Professional Staff will be here during hours of operation if you need assistance. The Pro Shop number is 765-496-9313.
  • The driving range will still be available for use with a few modifications:
    • The driving range shop will remain closed from now through April 7th.
    • We will have the small, side range by the cart barn available for use.
    • All range balls will be purchased through the pro shop via a credit card over the phone. A member of the Professional Staff will be able to take your payment over the phone and get a bucket of range balls for you. Once you are done hitting and done with your basket, please return it to the clubhouse for the next guest to use.
    • We will only allow 6 people hitting balls on the range tee at one time. This is done to help with social distancing and keeping a safe distance from others using the range.

This is a fluid and ever changing situation. We will update the situation as necessary.

If you have any questions at all during these times, please do not hesitate to call us at 765-496-9313.
