Bald Eagle Golf Club in Point Roberts looking to recover pandemic

Updated: May 3, 2022

Bald Eagle Golf Club in Point Roberts, Wash. is still trying to find a way to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.  The course, which is only accessible from the United States through Canada, was forced to shut its doors on March 16, 2020 when the pandemic started to rage.

Since then, the course has been closed with General Manager Rick Hooleo and a volunteer crew working to keep the course in shape. He was forced to lay off the entire maintenance crew when the course shut down over two years ago. Volunteers kept the grass cut to two inches as not to lose the grass at the course.

The U.S.-Canadian border opened a while ago, allowing Canadians to cross, but people are still leery about having trouble going home when they make the trip across the border.

Hooleo has hired a clubhouse manager and is hoping that golfers come back soon and he can use the revenue to bring back the maintenance crew and get the course back to shape.
