Covid 19 Update
The Mt Brenton Golf Club Board continues to monitor the Provincial Health Authority and Work Safe BC guidelines for Covid 19. Relaxation of rules is being phased in gradually but please be aware we are not through this crisis. We are continually being warned of ‘the second wave’. We cannot afford to let down our guard, as even one positive case of Covid associated with our Club would result in mandated closure of the course, with obvious devastating effect for our members, guests and staff, not to mention our financial structure. We continue physical distancing guidelines at the clubhouse, restaurant and on the course. All of the restrictions in place for course play remain in place for the time being. You have all heard of the ‘social bubble’ which allows people to expand their contacts to trusted family and friends. For this reason restaurants are opening with a maximum of six people per table yet tables are still 2 meters apart to ensure unwanted close contact. Rental and member carts may be shared by those in your ‘bubble’ yet we still offer single rider discounts for rentals. The choice is entirely yours. Please remember that while you may feel comfortable with closer contact, others may not.
This week we are opening the second door to the Pro Shop, but asking that members and guests, continue to honour the two person maximum in the shop. The ‘GO’ window continues to operate for green fee transactions and for those members not comfortable entering the shop. Jan and his team have great deals on merchandise, and we encourage you to shop locally. The lower lounge is now open to four people at a time either waiting to enter the Pro Shop, the Office or the washrooms which remain at one person occupancy.
We ask that members and guests continue to arrive at the course no earlier than 10-15 minutes before your tee time. This will allow you to warm up or do some putting on the practice green which remains restricted to 4 golfers.
Divot mix is now available for cart members and those carrying private sand bottles. Divot mix is available at the Cart shed and near #10 tee as well as select tees around the course. We ask you replace large divots and repair smaller ones with mix. Fix your own and at least one other in the vicinity. Your cooperation is much appreciated by the Grounds crew.
The Restaurant has been open for the month of June. They were closed two days, that were particularly rainy. The restaurant will check in with Proshop on rainy days to determine if there is sufficient traffic at the club to support opening. We ask all of our members and guests to ensure they do not move tables or chairs in the restaurant or the decks, as they are set up to meet provincial guidelines.
