Golf COVID OPERATING PLAN

A SAFE PLACE TO PLAY

As of June 1st, both of our golf courses have been open for public play and our Academy is open for lessons.

We have worked through every aspect of our business to ensure we are taking appropriate measures and creating protocols to protect our guests, staff & community, and we are delighted to provide you with a safe place to come and get away.

We've made significant investments into new sanitization protocols to ensure all carts are fully disinfected and sterilized.

Be assured that we've thought through it all and your golf game will be as safe as possible.

We are compliant with the Order of the Provincial Health Officer Sections 30, 31, 32, and 39 (3) Public Health Act, S.B.C.), WorkSafeBC and NGCOA and Golf Canada.
