Booking a Tee Time
Temporary Implementation of the Online Tee Time System
Because there are such limitations on the amount of golfers that can tee off each hour, we will be opening our online golf management system to incorporate a temporary tee time reservation policy. This will help you know when to come to the golf course, and keep members from having to sit in their cars for an extended period of time waiting for their turn to tee off. To be clear, there is no fee for this - it is part of your membership.
Member reservations will be limited to one 9-hole round per day to start, and we will adjust accordingly after the first two weeks of play. You can access the Member Portal directly by logging into your account at www.chronogolf.com or going to the Nehoiden GC home page and selecting Tee Time in the top menu. Your login email is the same email we have on file at Nehoiden. If you need to reset your password, you can do so by selecting Forgot Password? from the login screen. You can also make tee times by downloading the Chronogolf App on your smartphone, and logging into your account there. Details on how to book a time are below, and step-by-step instructions can be found on the Booking Your Round on Chronogolf cheat sheet.
Monday’s tee sheet will open today at 5pm. After that, you will be able to book up to two days in advance of the current day, starting at 7am each morning. Please note to start the season, the course will open at 7am each day, and the last tee time will be 5pm. No golf will be allowed outside of those times. There will also be no formal men’s or women’s group play to start the season. We hope to have both groups start their individual seasons soon.
We have always stated that Nehoiden GC is a private member course with a first come, first served policy, and would like to reiterate that the tee times reservation system is a temporary solution during this ongoing pandemic. As soon as conditions allow, we plan to return to our walk-on system.
Booking Your Round
- All members must book tee times online to reserve a spot to play. Tee times must be reserved by logging into the Nehoiden Member Portal found by logging into your account through , through the Nehoiden GC website, as well as through the Chronogolf App on your phone. NO WALK-UPS ALLOWED.
- Currently Members cannot book guests to play at Nehoiden, as we are Members only to start the season.
- Members can book one 9-hole tee time per day, up to two days in advance to ensure all members have a chance to play. Please only book a reservation if you can confirm play to make it fair for all golfers.
- Given the mandated restrictions between tee times of 15 minutes, which affects overall course capacity, we urge you to reserve no more than 4 tee times per week as a courtesy to other members. We will continue to monitor the situation and make adjustments as needed.
- You can book tee times for other members in your group - please confirm that these members will be able to play.
- Cancel a confirmed reservation as soon as you know you cannot play to allow others access to that tee time. You can cancel a tee time up to two hours before your selected tee time.
- No shows from members with a reserved tee time will automatically forfeit any additional tee time reservations in the upcoming days. Members will need to rebook new tee times if they wish to play.
Membership at Nehoiden is currently closed for the Full Member (Wellesley Resident) tier. The wait list was created to give residents the opportunity to be informed once memberships become available as current Members decline renewal offers in the offseason. As these positions open up, names are selected chronologically from the waitlist to fill the available slots. The current wait for Membership from the wait list is several years, but is subject to change.
If you are applying as a Full Member (Wellesley Resident), please note that only residential addresses will be accepted for membership. Business addresses cannot be used to determine eligibility. All memberships are for individuals only, though there are opportunities for additional family members to join once an individual in the household becomes a member. Please put each household name onto the wait list individually. Full Members will be required to pay an Initiation Fee before their first year of membership.
To be considered for the wait list, submit your contact information to Nehoiden Golf Club via the Nehoiden Golf Club Waitlist Form. Contact information should include your name, home address, phone number and email address. Please DO NOT submit your contact information multiple times. Soon after you submit your form, you will receive an email from our golf management system Chronogolf asking you to activate your account. This email confirms that you have been placed in our wait list database in the order that your form was submitted, and may come days or weeks after you submit your waitlist form. You can activate your account if you choose, or wait until you get the invitation for Full Membership to Nehoiden.
Once you are eligible for Membership, you will receive more detailed information from Nehoiden Golf Club, including a preliminary membership application. You will be asked to submit your application and the associated dues and fees at that time for full access to Nehoiden Golf Club, as well as the opportunity to participate in Member events, travel opportunities, clinics, and other related activities.
