We are OPEN for walking only, with important changes...
We are Open

Due to the latest Executive Order from the Governor of Delaware, we will only allow residents of the state of Delaware to play our course.

Ed Oliver Golf Club is taking the threat of COVID-19 very seriously. Guided by the recommendations of the CDC, local, state, and federal guidelines, we have been making numerous changes to our golf operations to assist in providing the safest experience as possible for our guests and staff.

While understanding the real threat of the current conditions we are also trying to provide some level of physical activity and limited social interaction. Establishing this balance during a very fluid situation will be challenging, however, we are working to implement processes and practices to meet this dual objective. In an abundance of caution, we are implementing the following practices below:

To play golf and to minimize contact, you must call the golf shop directly (302.571.9041) to prepay prior to your round.

  • We are WALKING ONLY - No golf carts
  • Everyone must book in advance
  • Walk-up play will not be allowed in order to follow the CDC’s guidelines on gatherings and social distancing; however, you can go to our website on your mobile device to book and pay for your round in the parking lot
  • No cash transactions will be accepted, credit card only
  • Only one person allowed at a time in the golf shops and restrooms
  • All on course restrooms have been closed
  • There will be no food and beverage service
  • Please do not gather in small groups while on or off the golf course
  • In order to remove contact points, all bunker rakes, ball washers and water coolers have been removed
  • Golfers are not allowed to touch the flag stick.  To assist with this, we have instituted creative ways to stop the golf ball from going down into the cup
  • We are now running 15-minute tee times to minimize guest contact
Social Distancing Standards at Ed Oliver

In an effort to protect the health and safety of our employees and guests, we are following Social Distancing Standards recommended by the Center for Disease Control. These standards will be strictly enforced without exception. We appreciate your patience and understanding as our employees diligently work to provide a safe environment for everyone.

Thank you,
Team at Ed Oliver Golf Club

Important Changes to Tee Time Bookings

Golfers –

We are happy to announce that all tee times booked online will be paid for at time of booking. This will allow you to check-in with the starter and tee off while continuously maintaining the CDC recommended 6 foot distance from our staff and other guests.

As such, all tee times booked online must be paid for at time of booking. As we work through this technological transition, additional discounts, gift cards, and rain checks will not be accepted as forms of payment online at this time. Members and cardholders may not see the correct rate after logging into the booking engine. If so, please call the golf shop directly to book your play and pay via phone with a credit card.

This is only temporary as we understand the real threat of the current conditions while also trying to provide some level of physical activity. Establishing this balance during a very fluid situation will be challenging, and if for any reason you cannot make your tee time or run into an issue please email us at info@edolivergolfclub.com with the name, date and time of reservation.

The Course

Ed Oliver Golf Club was built on the original site of the Wilmington Country Club.  Wilfred Reid designed the original layout that was later redesigned twice, first by Alfred Tull, and later by Edmund Ault.  Since the final redesign by Mr. Ault in 1971, the layout has essentially remained the same.
