Good morning everyone,

I wanted to provide a quick update regarding certain changes to the provincial guidelines and our course/range opening date.

Based on the snow over the weekend and current temperatures, we have now revised our opening date for the course/range to Wednesday May 20th (weather permitting).  Our superintendent will be providing an additional blog update to comment on the weather and temperature from the past week.

With the province now moving into phase 2 of the recovery, a number of the initial guidelines have now been updated or changed.  For example, we are now permitted to set our own tee time intervals, so we will be starting the season at our regular 10min intervals back from the 20min initially proposed.  Along with tee time changes, we are now able to open our clubhouse at a limited capacity. We are currently outfitting our building (as per the provincial guidelines) with proper signage, acrylic shields and approved cleaning products/procedures to protect our staff and customers for opening day.

Regarding power carts, we are still restricted to one rider per cart (golfers that reside in the same household can travel in the same cart/no bubble consideration at this time) and we will manage the allocation of the carts based on member priority booking.  We will be working off a two carts per group policy unless the daily bookings allow for us to permit otherwise.  Please plan on only two people in your foursome to be permitted to ride per round.

This will definitely be a season of compromise as we deal with the “new” normal, so we ask for everyone’s patience going forward.  We will be providing a complete update on Monday to address opening day booking options for members along with what golfers need to know when they arrive at our course.

If you are looking to purchase your membership, please call the clubhouse 450-GOLF (4653) between 9:30am to 4:30pm Monday-Friday for details/appointment.

Please remember that all messages sent are also posted on our website under the “Bulletin Board” tab.
