SIM Boston Presents the Michael P. Brooks Memorial Golf Outing 
Frequently Asked Questions

2020 Questions

Where can I find hand sanitizer?

Hand sanitizer is available in every cart and also at each tee box, the starter shack, golf shop, and snack shack.  The logistics team will also have extra bottles available to distribute as needed.

 Is water available on the course?

Yes, there will be a staffed cart that travels the course throughout the day with bottled water available to golfers.  Water fountains are closed due to COVID.

How will registration be handled?

SIM Boston's Golf Outing Committee has partnered with the Cyprian Keyes Golf Club to collectively make our annual Golf Outing Event as safe as possible during this COVID-19 pandemic.  We are exploring every opportunity where we can provide you with a safe and fun day of golf and networking while maintaining social distancing and contactless interactions.

When you first arrive at Cyprian Keyes on September 16th, you will be welcomed by a member of the Logistics Team who will check your temperature with a contactless temporal artery thermometer.  You will be instructed to remain in your car and proceed to the new Drive-Thru Registration Table.  Once we have checked off your name, and handed you a gift bag, you will be asked to drive up to the golf bag drop-off area where Cyprian Keyes Stafff will bring your golf bag to your golf cart.  If you have opted to walk the course and use your own pull cart, you will be directed where to park.

How will we handle the shotgun start?

The golf carts will not be clustered around the circle for the shotgun start, but will be staged in a way to ensure social distancing.  

Will carts be available?

At this point we are guaranteed 80 carts.  We are looking into obtaining more carts for the day and will provide an update when we have it.

Is walking the course an option?

Cyprian Keyes has about 8 pull carts available if people prefer to walk.  You also have the option of bringing your own pull cart and using that.  We need to know in advance if you are planning to walk so that we can ensure that your starting hole is close to the clubhouse.  Please indicate at registration whether you plan to walk the course and whether you require a pull cart or will bring your own. 

An additional option is to walk the course and have a cart in your foursome shuttle your clubs for you.

Will lunch be provided?

There will be a full barbecue buffet provided at the snack shack during the day. 

 Can I remove the flag sticks at holes?

No.  Due to regulations, you must not touch the flagsticks.

Are bunker rakes available?

Under the current guidelines, bunker rakes are not allowed.

Do I have to wear a mask while golfing?  

In accordance with the state's current guidelines, everyone at the event must wear a face mask when not on the golf course.  One of the items in your gift bag will be a SIM Boston-branded face mask that you will be asked to keep with you and wear at the event when you are not golfing or eating.

What bathrooms are available?

The bathrooms on the course and in the clubhouse are available.  These facilities are cleaned throughout the day.

What will dinner look like?

We are currently working out the details of dinner to ensure we are compliant with all state guidelines.  We will provide an update as soon as we have it. 

How do I purchase raffle tickets?

We will hold a raffle this year.  We are currently working out details as to how we will do this safely.  Check back for updates!
