New Scorecard and New Layout!

The new scorecard is currently being printed and with the new scorecard comes a new layout. This coming week (July 21st) we will be reversing the nines for the last time. Starting on the current back nine will accomplish many things:

1.Improve pace of play. The current walk between the 9th green and 10th tee will be eliminated.

2.Assist the professional shop staff in controlling the 1st tee as all members and guests will have to pass the clubhouse to gain access to the golf course.

3.This change will make it more convenient to utilize the driving range and warm up prior to heading to the 1st tee, thus increasing range revenue. 

4.Starting on the current back nine should allow groups to space themselves out quicker with a long par five and par four early in their round.

5.Creates a much better finishing hole (par 5)

Please allow some time to get requests in to golf Canada, our app creator and GPS companies to get the nines flipped.

Starting on the first tee

I remind all members and guests that starting on the first tee is mandatory. Starting on the back nine creates pace of play problems for those golfers that started on the first tee at least two hours prior to any group cutting in and starting on number ten. Players that start on then back nine will be removed from the course and asked to start on the first hole when a tee time becomes available. It is important to remember that the golf course is sometimes busy and the pace of play may slower than you like. Extremely hot days will usually slow the pace as well!

Professional Shop Price Cuts

Almost all drivers & fairway woods have been reduced to sell. Please contact Greg Neate to book a custom fitting. All SunIce jackets are also on sale for a limited time only.

Men’s Match Play

We are very late getting the men’s match play started. Anyone interested in competing in this event must sign up as soon as possible. The first 16 men signed up will be in this event and the matches will be posted in the bar.
