Face Masks are REQUIRED! to enter the clubhouse at Oneka Ridge Golf Course
We would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every customer for their patience, understanding and cooperation during this challenging time. We are also going to ask for your help.
We have been working diligently to keep up with the messaging from MDH, CDC, WHO, MN Dept of Public Safety, DNR, MN Gambling and Alcohol and other organizations that dictate the rules regarding COVID-19. We’re sending this out as a reminder of the rules set forth and are asking for your continued understanding and cooperation.
As many of you know, due to restrictions put on us we may from time to time have a cart shortage. Please understand that we have brought in additional staff to retrieve and sanitize carts before the carts are sent back out with a different user. Carts go out in order of tee times. You will not be able to take a cart earlier than 15 minutes prior to your tee time or as soon as a cart is available, which ever is shorter.
We are allowed to have the patio open as long as the tables are at least 6 feet apart and there are no more than 4 people per table and less than 50 people total on the patio at any time. We have 48 chairs out there. Please do not move tables closer together than the 6 foot rule. Wearing a face mask is highly recommended.
We can sell beverages using the window on the north side of the building and have marks on the path and entry sidewalk indicating the 6 foot rule.
The clubhouse restrooms are open and cleaned frequently. However, keeping them clean between use is a challenge. There is room for one person per restroom at a time unless you’re from the same household. This flow seems to be working fine.
We’ll also take this opportunity to remind golfers to keep carts on the path where paths are available and to repair ball marks on the greens. The grounds crew has been focused on improving the playability and we hope you’ve noticed improvements in the fairways and approaches. We’ve added a bunker on the #1 fairway and we’re modifying the bunker on #17.
Thank you all again! We sincerely appreciate your business.
Other guidelines are below as to what our policies are in place now.
Biffs are located near the 5th green and also near the 13th tee.
Leave the flagstick in the hole.
Maintain 6 feet of social distance. About the distance of arms outstretched or length of a golf cart.
No rakes, benches or ball washers are allowed on the course.
Please return your cart to the area near the cart barn for disinfecting.

Testimonials: "I drive 38 miles from Burnsville 5 days a week to play golf at Oneka Ridge. The first 10 years I had a 12 minute drive from Little Canada. I have tried many different courses in the south metro and St. Paul. With the improvements they have made in the past 5 years, plus the great staff, that is like no other, and the wonderful friendships I have made, I have no reason to even look at other courses! I did not even mention the many leagues they have that truly make Oneka stand out. " --- Ken D.
"Great staff, great course and great times!" ---Greg B.
