Due to CT Governor Ned Lamont’s Executive Order #7H in regards to the recent outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19) We will be delaying opening for the 2020 Season. The Clubhouse and Property are currently closed, except for the Essential Staff (Golf Course Maintenance) that have to maintain the property...

Executive Order 7H: “Restrictions on Workplaces for Non-Essential Businesses. Effective on March 23, 2020 at 8:00 p.m. and through April 22, 2020, unless earlier modified, extended, or terminated by me, all businesses and not-for-profit entities in the state shall employ, to the maximum extent possible, any telecommuting or work from home procedures that they can safely employ. Non-essential businesses or not-for-profit entities shall reduce their in-person workforces at any workplace locations by 100% not later than March 23, 2020 at 8:00 p.m.”

Further Clarification was sent by the CT Department of Economic and Community Development (DECD) Office and the CSGA stating that we could "open, but with great restrictions" including:

  • keeping our clubhouse and golf shop closed
  • accepting only prepaid tee times online or over the phone 
  • along with other measures that would be needed to be strictly enforced "on the golf course."

Candlewood Valley Country Club is a privately owned 18 Hole Public Daily Fee Golf Course. We are not owned or operated by the local municipality. We also have been and always will be committed to the caring of our guests and team members Health and Well Being. We have also consulted with our town Health Director for guidance on this matter. At this time with the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) on the increase, the decision to delay our opening is still in effect until the Governors Executive Order expires. This is a decision we made as a team, and it is a decision we did not make lightly and one made with a heavy heart. Our priority is you and every guest who visits us, as well as our staff. 

We will continue to monitor the situation, and we will keep you updated on our projected opening day.
