The Sunday Back Nine

Updates from our Golf Team

Every week, until we are all back out on the fairways, stay connected to everything golf here at Predator Ridge with our weekly "Sunday Back Nine".

 

THE FOURTH EDITION

We're starting things off with a new feature, "Golf Stories" with the one & only, Richard Zokol.

Richard "Dick" Zokol is a two-time PGA Tour champion and Canadian Golf Hall of Fame inductee who joined the Predator Ridge team in 2012. Dick played as a professional golfer for more than 20 years.

In this week's golf story, Dick recounts one of his favourite tour moments from the late 1980's when he played a practical joke on Jack Nicklaus.

COVID-19 OPERATING PLAN

In case you missed the news, our management team feels that the timing is now suitable and safe to open our courses in a responsible way. This week marks the first phase of opening our golf courses before our official opening in June. 

The Predator Course – Tuesday, May 5, 2020
The Ridge Course – Wednesday, May 13, 2020

During the above dates, the golf courses will be open to our active dues paying Members and Society Members only. This time is dedicated exclusively to our active Members.

It is important to note that we are currently looking to open using these timelines, however all times are subject to change depending on current provincial and federal mandates. 

It is also very important to note that our first phase of opening will not introduce playing as usual. All Members must accept and complete our electronic declaration acknowledging COVID-19 protocols prior to accessing the golf course. No exceptions.  If you have not done so already, please click the below button to read and sign your declaration.
