Play Golf and Tennis in Hampton

Hampton’s two golf courses are open. The Hamptons and The Woodlands, as well as the clay-court Hampton Tennis Center. All facilities are maintaining social distancing by not operating at full capacity.

Changes at the golf courses include:

  • Golfers are recommended to rent one cart per person, but doubles will be allowed.
  • No rental of clubs or equipment other than carts, which will be sanitized between uses
  • Tee times will be farther apart (10 minutes versus 6-7 minutes).
  • Food and beverages are for sale at the restaurants (pick-up window at The Woodlands; outdoor seating service available at The Hamptons); however, players should bring their own water for the course.
  • The Hampton Tennis Center building is closed, so a port-a-john will be provided. Players should also bring their own water.
