Sunflower Hills Covid-19 Restrictions 

Wyandotte County has issued a plan for the road to recovery for our community.  The "Restart WYCO" plan is a three phased plan that provides guidance to residents and businesses for the reopening process.  The phases are labeled as zones: RED ZONE, YELLOW ZONE AND THE GREEN ZONE.  We are currently in the RED ZONE which is the most restrictive.  We can allow one person at a time to come to the front door and make arrangements to pay for their fees, order food and beverages and purchase items from the pro shop to carry out.  The YELLOW ZONE will allow us to open the clubhouse to 25% capacity.  Customers may come to the counter to pay for fees, order food and beverage and sit down in the snack bar seating area.  The GREEN ZONE is the least restrictive zone. In this zone we are able to allow 50% of our normal capacity into the building. In this zone, shared carts will be available as well as tournaments and leagues with proper social distancing.  Movement from one zone to the next will be predicated on the number of Covid-19 cases in Wyandotte County in a 14 day period.  If there is a downward trend for 14 days then movement into the next zone may occur.  For more information on the Restart WYCO plan please visit wycokck.org/COVID-19. With this plan in place, June 9th or later will be the soonest that we will be able to get back to some normalcy.

These restrictions remain in affect:

  • Golf Carts Limited to Single Rider Only: The use of golf carts will be limited to one rider per cart. No Pull carts will be available to rent.
  • Tee times: Spaced at intervals to manage social distancing and crowding. Advance tee times are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. You Must Check In At The Clubhouse Before You Tee Off!
