March Break Jr. Camps - Hi everyone, it is that time of year again and I'm happy to announce there will be a 2017 March Break Golf Camp. I will run one each week for each age group. 5-7 year olds will run from 12-2pm daily Monday-Friday and cost $150. This will run both weeks, the 13-17 and the 20-24. I will see what numbers are like to assure it will run both weeks. If one week seems more popular then I may have to only run it one week, but I hope to see some solid numbers.
Ages 8+ will also run the same dates and be from 9am-12pm and will cost $180. Parents can choose what week works best for their schedules.
I'm excited about this years camps and hope to see some familiar faces, and hopefully many new ones. These camps are a great way for beginners to find out if they enjoy the sport, and a great way for those who participated last year to improve their skills. I offer the basic fundamentals of putting, chipping, and the full swing while also introducing the kids to proper etiquette and some rules of the game. I take pride in providing a safe and positive atmosphere!
Please email at firstname.lastname@example.org to register or if you have any questions.
Thank you and hope to see you all in March,
Course reopens! - Get those sticks out, the course is now open for play! Just a word of caution: there will be some soft spots out there, both on the fairways and the cart paths.
A reminder that until March 1, the course continues to be on the Honour System. Both members and non-members alike are asked to register their rounds at the pro shop. The fee for non-members continues to be $20 for those aged 20 and over and $10 for juniors.
Thank you for your co-operation concerning the conditions over the past seven weeks. We look forward to seeing you back on the course.
2017 Snowman Challenge - Because of weather conditions, the course is unplayable at this time. Watch this space for exciting news about a replacement tournament to be held sometime in February.
Winter pro shop hours - Effective November 1, the pro shop reverts to winter hours. While the course remains open 7 days a week - weather permitting - the pro shop will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. only on weekends. We regret that when the pro shop is closed, rentals will not be available. The 'Honour System' is in effect when the pro shop is not staffed. ALL golfers - members and non-members - are reminded that the Honour System is in effect when the pro shop is closed. Charter, Full Play, Intermediate, and Junior members are asked to sign a clip board (by the door to the pro shop); and Limited Play members are requested to write their name on their voucher and slip it through the pro shop letter slot. We NEED to track your rounds played, just as we do in the summer. Non-members are to put their name on the envelope provided along with $20 cash (all-day rate). If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at email@example.com or phone us at 604.947.GOLF (4653). We appreciate your cooperation.
