Howey-In-The-Hills, FL – Taking care of the customer has been the cornerstone of the Mission Inn Resort & Club’s culture since 1964. Amidst the changes happening at a statewide and global level due to the coronavirus outbreak, under Governor DeSantis’ Executive Order on April 1, 2020, golf is considered an essential activity. This has allowed members and guests of Mission Inn to continue to enjoy the resort’s championship golf courses and many services safely.
Mission Inn Resort & Club has been independently owned and operated by the Beucher family for more than 55 years. Vice President and General Manager of Mission Inn, Bud Beucher, gave a recent announcement, encouraging guests to “head to the hills,” referring to Mission Inn’s location just outside of Orlando. “At my house, we’re going out for a walk, we’re sitting down and talking to each other, we’re going outside and playing a little golf, and enjoying the Central Florida weather,” Beucher said.
As part of encouraging locals to enjoy outdoor activities at Mission Inn like golfing and renting a boat for the day on Marina del Rey, Mission Inn is remaining vigilant in maintaining guest and staff safety. They are committing to precautionary measures recommended by the C.D.C., W.H.O., state, and local authorities, and have also implemented golf safety instructions and measures for both championship golf courses.
“In response to social distancing, we have taken a few steps to make sure that our golfers are safe. We are allowing golfers to take an individual golf cart when they go out on the golf course. In addition, when we have groups, we are distancing the golf carts about more than six feet apart, front to back and left to right,” said Luis Colon, Head Golf Professional at Mission Inn.
Along with new rules to the golf carts, Mission Inn is also asking players not to remove pins from cups during their rounds. Additionally, staff are sanitizing golf carts prior to and after play, wearing appropriate PPE, and utilizing the A-456 disinfectant cleaners that are being used statewide to combat the virus.
Golf and outdoor activities are not the only reasons guests are still coming to Mission Inn. Though the governor of Florida has mandated no in-restaurant seating, guests of Mission Inn can still get a taste for Executive Chef Zollo’s creations through food take-out, room service, and complimentary curbside pickup. Food options include but are not limited to Mission Inn’s signature steak, seafood entrees, pizza, and more.
