Before Your Round
We’ve introduced measures and guidelines to protect the health of our guests and employees. These align with Provincial Health regulations for physical distancing (minimum two club length — 6 feet apart) and sanitation practices to help our golf course operate safely. All golfers must familiarize themselves with these guidelines and adhere to all health and safety practices during their visit.
Golfers are required to book & pay in advance online or in the pro shop using a credit card or debit card. We will have a limited number of merchandise items such as tees and golf balls available for purchase in the pro shop; credit and debit cards are preferred; cash will be accepted only when absolutely necessary.
Golfers check in at pro shop at the usual entrance on the west side of the building. Only one person per cash register will be allowed inside the pro shop, with the others waiting outside and maintaining proper distances. Golfers must show proof of online payment, or pay using either a credit or debit card. Upon check in, golfers will be reminded of the importance of proper social distancing throughout the round. You will be given one pencil and one score card by a staff member. Please wait in your vehicle up until 15 minutes prior to your tee time in order to prevent over-crowding at the pro shop entrance. We encourage any golfers who enter the pro shop to wear a mask when checking-in.
Golfers may: (a) walk and carry their own clubs, (b) take a golf cart, if available, with a limit of one person per cart (2 per cart if they are from the same household), or (c) bring their own pull cart. Golf carts will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. All golf carts will be sanitized both before and after use.
Club Rental & Pull Cart Rental
Golfers must bring their own clubs, as no rental sets are available. The sharing of golf clubs is not allowed. Golfers may use their own pull cart, as no pull cart rentals will be available.
Non-playing guests are not allowed to walk or ride with golfers.
The driving range is open. Each hitting station will be set up about ten feet apart, mats only (hitting off the turf is suspended until further notice); the balls will be sanitized every day.
During Your Round – Groups
Golfers may play in groups up to four players and are required to maintain proper social distancing throughout the round.
On-course Changes – Flagstick & Cups
Flagsticks remain in the holes at all times and are not to be touched at any time. The holes have been partially filled, so that the ball only drops into the hole half-way, thus it is easily retrievable.
Food and Beverage Service
We offer limited food & alcoholic beverage items for purchase and will be operating similar to takeout service at a restaurant. There will be no dine-in or sit-down service.
New entrance will be from the north door off the parking lot (no access from inside the pro shop). Restroom facilities will be open, with a limit of one person at a time using each washroom, and sanitized regularly. Supplies to disinfect any touchpoints in the restroom, before and/or after use, are available in each restroom in case Golfers wish to use them. The washrooms on the course will also be open, and will be maintained and may be used is a similar fashion.
After Your Round
We ask that all golfers report back to their vehicles after their round. Cart drop off and exit to the parking lot are on the east side of the pro shop building.
Thank you in advance for your co-operation. Our goal is to continue to provide each of you with a top-notch golf experience, even if the way we do it is slightly different than what we are used to. We hope you all continue to stay safe and enjoy your time spent at Seven Lakes Championship Golf.
