 What We’re Doing:

The health and safety of our guests and staff are our top priority. In addition to the established procedures below, staff will be:

  •  Sanitizing all contact surfaces including door handles/knobs, counter tops, POS terminals at least every hour or immediately after person contact when possible

  • Carts, including steering wheel, seats and other contact points are sanitized every evening or before being used by another individual. For added peace of mind, you may ask a staff member to sanitize again before play

  •  Tee Times have been changed to 10-minute intervals

  • Additional Hand Sanitizer will be made available at select locations


The following procedure MUST be followed by every golfer during their visit.


  • Golfers may not arrive any earlier than 15 mins prior to their scheduled tee time. If you do arrive prior, please remain in your vehicle until the time arrives. If you see a group waiting on the practice green, please wait in your vehicle until they proceed to the first tee.

  • Golfers will be responsible to load/unload their own cart. This includes ALL garbage to be collected by golfer after round.

  • Please have all players in group entered in tee sheet when booking online.

During Your Round

  • Pins are to remain in the entire time. No removal.

  • Cups will be altered so ball remains as close to surface as possible.

  • There will be no rakes in the bunkers. Please use your foot to smooth out sand as best as possible

  •  Do not touch any other equipment than your own. As much as we may be inclined to retrieve someone’s golf ball or pick up their clubs around the green, DO NOT. This includes tees.

  • No handshakes, high fives, fist bumps or any other contact

  •  Pace of Play is 4 hours. Please play ready golf to avoid any hold ups or gatherings on tee boxes. IF there is a wait on tee boxes, groups must remain at least 10 meters from each other.

  • There will be no playing through or jumping holes.

  • Golfers within groups must always adhere to the 2-meter social distancing rule throughout their round

  •  Washrooms on the course will remain closed at this time.

  •  Bar & Grill will be available for walk up service or call in orders only. Please remain 2-meters from others if there is a wait.


After your round

  • Call-in food or beverage service will be available for pickup after your round. (Menu online or on 18 tee)

  • If you have a drive cart please bring cart around to the front and stop at designated area.

  •  You are responsible to unload your own cart. This includes any garbage. Garbage cans will be available.

  • Once completely unloaded, staff will retrieve your cart. No loitering allowed in parking lot.


Additional Procedures

  • Only Golfers with booked tee times are allowed on property. No walk-ons or inquiry visits.

  • We will do our best to honour requests to keep twosomes on their own. But in order to manage our cart fleet, it may not be possible.


These procedures are for your safety, the safety of your playing partners and the safety of our Staff. These procedures are non-debatable and any golfer not following or defying these procedures will be asked to leave the premises and playing privileges will be suspended indefinitely. Thank you in advance for joining us to keep golf a safe activity during these unprecedented times.
