Edina, Minn., Sept. 7, 2020 – After remaining closed to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and comply with State orders, the City of Edina will reopen the Braemar Golf Dome, 7420 Braemar Blvd., for the season on Monday, Sept. 14, and Braemar Field, 7509 Ikola Way, on Saturday, Sept. 19, with limited use.
The Braemar Golf Dome was forced to closed early in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic and for the health and safety of its visitors. For the 2020-2021 season, it will open almost two months early on Sept. 14, with hours from 1 to 9 p.m. through Nov. 1 and 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. beginning Nov. 2. The Toptracer Range technology, the same ball-tracking technology the pros use, will be available for use when the Dome opens.
To support safety measures and continue to help slow the spread of COVID-19, visitors can anticipate new guidelines like being required to wear masks during check-in and when traveling to and from their hitting bay, increased sanitation and hand sanitizer stations, no cash transactions or club rentals, and limiting two golfers per bay on the lower level and one golfer per bay on the upper deck. For a complete list of COVID-19 guidelines or for the latest information on the Dome, visit BraemarGolfDome.com.
Braemar Field will reopen with limited use beginning Sept. 19, to allow affiliated sports organizations and sports programs to rent the facility for practices. Groups interested in using the field must have a COVID-19 plan on file with the City, publish it to their organization’s website and have a process for tracking participants. The walking track will remain closed to the public until further notice, but staff hopes to reopen it in November.

Visitors to both facilities should continue to follow public health guidance, stay home when sick and maintain six feet of social distance from others when they are not engaging in sport activities.
