For the safety of our members, staff and guests, Mount Brenton Golf Course is now closed till further notice! This includes all use of the golf course, the clubhouse and the practice areas.
April 4th update.
The spread of COVID – 19 continues to concern our federal and provincial governments. The consistent and urgent advice from health care professionals remains “Stay at Home” during this critical period in managing the infection curve. The Board of Directors is continuing to monitor the advice of these professionals during the course closure.
We understand that some courses in the Cowichan Valley have re-opened or are preparing to open in the near future. The Board of Directors met yesterday to discuss this development. A long board discussion ensued considering member, health professional, government and competitor course views. At the conclusion of the discussion, the Board agreed that our member and community safety being paramount, it is premature to reopen the course on a full or partial basis. It was agreed that the position would be reconsidered in a week’s time, and that diligence on readiness to re-open would remain paramount.
The Board will continue to watch this information closely over the next week. The Board is working closely with Ernie and Jan to ensure that the course is ready and prepared to open when the Board considers it safe to do so.
We again remind our members with Carts in the storage facility, that you should not visit the cart shed unless it is essential, and if you do visit you must clean your hands with an alcohol based sanitizer before you enter and after you exit the facility. The cart shed remains a high-risk area for infection.
Thankyou for doing your part in this, and stay safe.
