Dear Valued Guests & Travelers,
Each day we are updated with news and information about coronavirus as this epidemic is affecting areas all over the world, and as of yesterday, March 16th, 2020 Oregon has new regulations that will impact you, our valued guests. We appreciate your patience while all of us work through these times, as we are committed to offering you an all-season resort destination here at Running Y Ranch Resort.
Running Y Properties - Running Y Ranch Resort & Cerulean Hotel - is writing you today regarding the novel coronavirus COVID-19. Following the orders for social distancing and regulations by Governor of Oregon Kate Brown, Running Y Properties is taking steps towards halting gathering of 25 people or more, and practicing social distancing of 10 or less people.
Ruddy Duck Restaurant
Ruddy Duck Restaurant is open to dine-in patrons as well as take out as of May 15, 2020. Ruddy Duck Restaurant will continue to stay open with modified menus for each meal period during the following modified schedule:

Meetings and Events
Rogue Beer Dinner, Easter Brunch, Cooking Demos, and Pasta Night are all cancelled.
For those who have scheduled meetings or weddings:
We are very unsure as to what is going to happen in the next couple months. What we do know is that Oregon's Governor has regulations in place to practice safe social distancing - no gatherings of 25 people or more are allowed, and it recommended to avoid casual gatherings of less than 25 people until September 30, 2020.
We have direct instructions to follow these guidelines until September 30, 2020. We are unsure as to what is happening moving past this date, but all we can do is wait.
We will be collecting deposits and payments as normal if your event is outside the order from the Governor of Oregon, Kate Brown. We want to express that we sympathize that this is a very nerve-wracking time for the entire world, and we, Running Y Properties, will be as flexible as possible. Given the circumstances that our Governor extends these dates past your event/group/wedding date, we will adjust accordingly at that time.
If you wish to move your date at this time to another specific date (before the above measures stated are up), we can do so, but please keep in mind to secure an alternate date, additional deposits may apply and rates my be adjusted, as this would fall into new business.
Sandhill Spa will be closing its doors until further notice as of March 18th, 2020. Running Y Ranch Resort made the difficult decision to close the spa temporarily to help ensure the health and safety of our associates and our guests. Sandhill Spa will be re-opening at the new location behind the Golf Pro Shop at 5790 Coopers Hawk Road.
Sports and Fitness Center
The Sports & Fitness Center is currently open with new restrictions and required procedures in place:
The pool building and showers will remain closed.
Safe self-distancing of 6 feet between people must be maintained.
The drinking fountain is unavailable, but water bottle can be refilled at the bottle filling station.
No indoor fitness classes will be held.
It is highly recommended that guests wash their hands before and after using equipment.
Guests are required to wipe down fitness machines and weights before and after use.
Hand sanitizer is available inside and outside the fitness room door. Please use it.
If you feel unwell or have a fever, please stay home.
Masks are not mandatory, but are highly recommended.
Ten (10) people max are allowed in the fitness/weight room at one time.
Due to occupancy limits, we ask that you abide by the 20 minutes s per machine rule.
All outdoor sports courts are currently closed until further notice.
Current hours are from 6:00 am to 8:00 pm daily.
For additional questions, please call the Sports & Fitness Center directly at 541.850.5587.
We are pleased to be able to work through these difficult times and offer a fun and healthy outdoor activity. Having said that, it is vitally important that everyone follows the social distancing guidelines set forth. We are making changes to our operation to ensure that everyone can stay safe. EVERYONE MUST MAINTAIN A MINIMUM DISTANCE OF AT LEAST 6 FEET FROM OTHERS AT ALL TIMES.
The driving range will remain closed until it is deemed safe to operate. There are simply too many common touch points involved to risk it.
All steering wheels, keys, handles, and bag latches will be sanitized each morning prior to use.
If you can walk, we encourage you to. If you choose to ride, we will limit each cart to one person. The shop is now open with a max occupancy of 4. If you rode here together, you may ride in a cart together.
Bunker rakes have been removed from the course. You may elect to enhance your lie in the bunker, and we ask you smooth your footprints using your feet to the best of your ability for the players behind you. The maintenance team will be smoothing bunkers as time permits, but labor will be short. Please do your part to help. If you'd rather drop your ball outside the bunker, that is completely up to you. Let's just enjoy the opportunity to be outside.
The cups on the course have been inverted to prevent the ball from dropping down into the hole. The ball will still enter the hole, but it will remain up where you can grab it with two fingers. DO NOT TOUCH THE FLAGSTICKS. Leave the flagstick in for all putts, and please carefully use two fingers to remove your ball. Out of respect for other players, please don't use your putter to gouge your ball out and compromise the cup edge for others.
If you intend to play, PLEASE call ahead to schedule your tee time.
Please be aware of social distancing at all times. Six feet is the mandated minimum distance. In a golf course setting, you should be able to do better than that. Take extra precaution on the putting green and teeing areas. If we see that distances are not being maintained on the putting green, we will be forced to close it down. Also, please don't congregate around the golf shop before or after your round.
The shop hours are now 7:30 am to 6:00 pm.
Enjoy the serene open space, exercise and sunshine. Thank you for helping keep yourself, our guests, and our associates safe and healthy through extreme social distancing.
Remember to wash your hands thoroughly and often for a minimum of twenty seconds.
For now, golf is deemed to be a relatively safe activity. Please follow all social distancing precautions. Please be cognizant of proper hygiene - wash/sanitize your hands more than you think you should. Avoid touching your face. Be kind. We are all in this together. Let's do our part to protect each other.
For hours, course conditions, and more information, call the Golf Pro Shop directly at 541.850.5580.
