APRIL 24, 2020

As the tension builds towards the opening of the golf season, a decision made solely by the government, I am pleased to announce that we will be ready to receive you at the Club should you need a place to walk. We wish it were with golf clubs, but that is still a no-no, so we wait.

Walking RDGCC

Starting Monday, April 27, the course will be open for walking every weekday from 9 a.m., assuming no frost. The gates to the parking lot will close at 6 p.m. We hope you can make it out and see the progress we are making on preparing the course for the start of the season, and please remember to give the Turfcare team a wide berth as they go about their duties. While here, be advised that the on-course washrooms are not yet open, so the only restrooms available for your use are those located in the girl’s and boy’s locker rooms on the main floor of the Clubhouse. We ask that you obey the physical distancing standard on not being closer than 2 metres unless you are from the same home and that you not come out if you are not feeling well. Thank you in advance for your cooperation on this front.

Food & Beverage Service

Additionally, we will be offering a curbside pick-up food service starting Monday. April 27.  The menu will be sent each Friday for your review, as seen below. Place orders each weekday between 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. with pick-up no later than 6 p.m. each weekday. Choose your pick up time, or delivery if required—order by calling or texting (403) 596-8857 or by emailing foodservices@rdgccc.ca. All orders will be charged to your account and placed on a table at the front door of the Clubhouse at your chosen pick-up time.

With golf now available in BC and in Saskatchewan on May 15, I remain optimistic that we will be golfing soon. Please contact your MLA to let them know that golf is part of the solution to meeting the physical and mental health needs of our community. Golf can take place, all while meeting all the protocols currently in place for minimizing the spread of COVID-19.
