The following are a few of our rules and regulations to make all tournament guests aware of:

As well, you can also arrange for refreshment` hole(s)` through our food and beverage department. Any infringement on this regulation can jeopardize our liquor license and behavior in this area will be monitored closely. A violation could lead to expulsion from our golf course and in a worst-case scenario, could lead to criminal charges.

The Alberta Government has announced additional public health measures to protect the health system and reduce the rising spread of COVID-19 province wide. Additional restrictions come into effect as of 11:59pm on May 9th in our region and will be enforced with $2,000 fines. These measures will be in effect for at least the next [3] weeks.

New restrictions limit who you will be allowed to play golf with. Starting Monday, May 10th, you are only permitted to play golf with members of your own household OR, if you live alone, you may choose up to two non-household close contacts.

The Golf Club will be revising our tee-sheets and as result if you currently have any tee-times booked between May 10th and May 31st, they will be CANCELLED. Because we are unable to identify the living situation of the reservations that currently exist on our tee-sheet, we have no choice but to proceed with cancellations for all of these bookings. (unless you called in and booked Friday morning)

New restrictions limit who you will be allowed to play golf with. Starting Monday, May 10th, you are only permitted to play golf with members of your own household OR, if you live alone, you may choose up to two non-household close contacts.

We are tired of continually having to completely recreate the way that we operate our business and we know that you are also tired of the changing regulations and protocols, but unfortunately this is the situation that exists at this time, so let’s do our best to politely work together during this difficult time so that we can all continue to play the game we love. Starting Friday, May 7th, you will have an opportunity to reserve tee-times for May 10th forward under the terms outlined below:

  • Maximum Booking Size = Twosome (2) people
  • Minimum Booking Size = Single (1) person
  • -TEE TIMES WILL GO TO 5 MIN INTERVALS-PLEASE DO NOT SHOW UP MORE THAN 10 MIN BEFORE-DRIVING RANGE MAX 5 PEOPLE AT A TIME.
  • -MANDATORY MASKS IN AND AROUND THE PROSHOP

**PLEASE REMEMBER DON'T SHOOT THE MESSENGER, ME AND THE STAFF DO NOT MAKE THE RESTRICTIONS WE JUST HAVE TO BE THE ONES TO PUT THEM IN PLACE. WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO MAKE THIS INTO A POSITIVE SITUATION FOR ALL.

-I will be sending an email out later today once I get tee-on set up with the new tee sheet intervals and rules. I will also then set up online booking. Until then please call to book your times. Thank you everyone, and please be patient over the next few weeks.
