We are very excited to be moving to stage three tomorrow, Friday July 16th. Please find some of the key changes below and what this means at the Elmira Golf Club.
Golf (on course):
On course touch items such as rakes, benches and ball washers can now return to the course (and will over the coming days)
Pin caddies may be removed.
Range time online-booking will end; however, social distancing is still required on all practice areas.
Masks on power carts are no longer required; however, for now we will continue to keep the dividers available for you to use.
There is now a Port-o-let between #5 tee and #7 Green to assist. Currently there are not options for the back 9; however, we continue to explore other options.
The paved pathway from the parking lot along the clubhouse by #10 will continue as a walking path only (no power carts)
We will continue to check in all golfers outside at the window for now, until the next stage.
Limits to the number of persons in the Golf Shop has increased.
Mandatory pre-booking of tee-times with full names for each player will continue.
Numbers in Washrooms / Lockers rooms will be expanded, and one way traffic no longer required in hallways.
Showers will remain closed for now; however, Lockers will be made available very soon for those looking for this service. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday July 23rd if you would like a locker for the remainder of the season at 50% regular price.
Side door entrance from range ball dispenser to Locker Rooms / washrooms will be open to two-way traffic.
Side door by #10 tee will remain as an EXIT only and entrance for staff only.
The Grill On The Green:
Indoor dining is now permitted; however, entrance through the front door of the Grill and sign in is still a requirement.
Dinner tables for both indoor and outdoor dinning can be increased beyond 4 persons with reservations
Please wait to be seated as indoor dining will have limits and not all tables will be available.
New Tees Coming Soon!:
The excitement continues as we can officially announce that most of the new tees will be opening on Friday July 23rd. The new colour scheme tee blocks of black-gold-silver-bronze, new scorecard with updated slopes/ratings/handicap holes, Golf Canada handicap update, Gallus app yardages and on-line scorecard will all be in place by end of day next Friday. Please find a preview PDF of the new scorecard layout attached to this email.
Thank you to all our staff teams, committees, volunteers, members and league players for your continued support, commitment, and patience with the challenging times we continue to be in. We look forward to enjoying these many great changes happening over the next week with all of you. Try some of the new tees once they open, or play one of the new blended tee setups, enjoy a meal inside the grill, spend some time shopping in the golf shop or bring a new golfer out to the range to try the game.
