2020 COVID-19 PROTOCOL FOR OPERATING SAFELY

Last updated Wednesday, May 13th at 2:00pm

First and foremost, we want you to know that operating safely during the Covid-19 pandemic is our first priority! By following the guidelines in place, golf can be a safe and fun activity for all. The following is a detailed list on how we plan to operate. Please read carefully so that you are prepared before coming to the golf course. Thank you for choosing Lake St. George!


PLEASE DO NOT VISIT THE GOLF COURSE IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING COVID-19 SYMPTOMS OR IF YOU HAVE TRAVELLED OUTSIDE OF ONTARIO IN THE LAST 14 DAYS.PLEASE PRACTICE SAFE PHYSICAL DISTANCING AT ALL TIMES AND RESPECT THE MANDATORY 6 FOOT RULE.

TEE TIMES:

  • You may only come onto the golf course property if you have a pre arranged tee time
  • Online booking is highly encouraged as Pro Shop staff is minimal
  • Singles will not be allowed at any time
  • Tee time intervals are twelve (12) minutes
  • One (1) rider per cart unless you live in the same household
  • When booking carts please make sure to select the correct number you need to ensure you have them reserved
  • At this time, we will not be allowing non golfers to accompany groups
  • We will require the names of all golfers in your booking. No last minute changes please, as we need record of everyone coming onto the premises
  • AT THIS TIME, WE WILL NOT BE ACCEPTING CASH. Debit/Credit only please

BEFORE GOLF ON THE DAY OF PLAY:

  • Please do not come to the golf course until 20 minutes prior to your tee time
  • We ALL must practice physical distancing at all times and obey the mandatory 6 foot rule
  • There will be a maximum of three (3) customers in the clubhouse at a time. This will be monitored by the starter and the Pro Shop attendant
  • The Pro Shop door will be the entrance and the snack bar door will be used to exit the clubhouse.
  • The putting green is reserved for the group that is next on the tee
  • Please do not head to the tee until given permission from the starter
  • Scorecards will only be given out by request when checking in for your round
  • We encourage you to bring your own hand sanitizer for use while golfing
  • Clubhouse washrooms are open but on course washrooms are not
  • We will not have clubs available for rent at this time
  • All Pro Shop sales are final
  • Our liquor license regulations are still in effect and bringing your own alcohol is strictly prohibited

CONCESSIONS:

  • At this time, we will only have light snacks and beverages for sale through the Pro Shop during check in

WHILE GOLFING:

  • Please continue to practice safe physical distancing
  • Please do not remove the flagstick. The cups have been altered so the ball cannot drop in the hole. Once the ball touches the pin, it is considered holed
  • Ball washers and Rakes have been removed. Covid-19 local rule is in place to allow you to “foot rake and place” your ball as needed. Please also do your best to “foot rake” your steps afterwards as well
  • Playing through or skipping holes is not permitted
  • On course washrooms are closed until further notice
  • If you need to take shelter during a rain delay, you must do so in your vehicle

  • Unfortunately, we have to ask that you leave the golf course immediately following your round. This includes the entire premises. Gathering in the parking lot afterwards is prohibited
  • For the safety of our staff, please throw out all garbage from your cart in the bins provided, or take it home with you

FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH ANY OF THE REGULATIONS ABOVE MAY RESULT IN LOSS OF PLAY IMMEDIATELY AND IN THE FUTURE. New information is arising daily and we will adjust regulations as necessary. This is a very different way of operating for us and we are looking forward to getting back to business as usual! Until then we really appreciate your understanding and cooperation! Thank you for helping us keep Lake St. George a safe place for everyone!

2020 MEMBERSHIPS:

  • All regulations stated above apply to members as well
  • Club storage is closed until further notice. When it reopens, no new club storage passes will be sold as space is limited
  • Any future membership purchases will be charged over four (4) payments due to the uncertainty of the golf season. To secure your membership, we just need a valid credit card number or four (4) post dated cheques. For more information please email kendall@lakestgeorgegolf.com
