Dear Carrollwood Country Club Members,

As I am sure you are all aware, Governor DeSantis has issued a new Executive Order to begin Phase One of Florida reopening, excluding Palm Beach, Broward, and Dade Counties.  This order extends to restaurants being allowed to open with occupancy of 25% of the total occupancy of the building maintaining 6 foot social distancing between parties, with seating for parties of 10 or fewer people and bar counters closed. Outside seating is permissible with appropriate social distancing.  We are also going to follow a Phase One of reopening Club dining facilities.  It is a “soft opening” if you will.  Below are our plans beginning Thursday, May 7th:

TO-GO:  Tuesday through Sunday 11:30am to 7pm. Daily Specials offered such as Street Taco Tuesdays, as well as our current limited menu

TURN GRILLE:  Tuesday through Thursday 9am to 4pm and Friday through Sunday 7am-4pm. Deli Sandwiches, Hot Dogs, Brats, and Beverages available
