Good day,

 

The weather has cooperated, the season is in full swing, and our course is looking great! Thank you for everyone’s continuous support by joining us at the course for your rounds of golf, for the food and beverages purchased in our clubhouse and your purchases in the proshop 

 

We are excited to announce that our Specials are back in action starting this week! Monday’s you can golf for $48 (includes cart) after 1pm and Toonie Tuesdays are back at $2/hole (Must play 18 and includes cart) after 2pm.  We also have great food and beverage specials these days as well!

 

Please note, as we round out our last phase of the renovations and washroom expansion we are still accepting donations towards the project.  This is our last season to offer the opportunity to have a taxable receipt in return for your donation, if you have any questions please don’t hesitate to talk to Jasmine.

 

We are looking at putting together some archives of pictures together from past to present here at the Hilly.  If anyone has any great pictures they would like to share, please feel free to scan and send to me, drop off at the pro shop, or place on a stick for use.  We are hoping to put together a slideshow that will play in the clubhouse for everyone to enjoy.

 

An update on where we are at with Covid regulations: We have closed our first check point at the shack as of July 13th.  The first point of checking in will now be when you enter in between the main buildings.  Here you will be directed which direction to go, along with answering proper questions.  Please note, we are still practicing proper social distancing along with extensive cleaning and disinfecting of all areas in the proshop, clubhouse and carts.  Our restaurant is now able to host 100 capacity, although, we are still keeping the social distance in mind when seating in our clubhouse areas. Cart restrictions have been lifted and you are able to now ride with your group if comfortable to do so. Our washroom facilities have now opened on the course for use, we remain at ten minute tee times, and flag poles remain placed in holes with altered cups.  At any time, if you have any questions about new regulations or are unclear with what is in place please don’t hesitate to talk to Jasmine. Thank you for working with us during this unknown time and allowing us to do our best to keep everyone safe and healthy at the course.

 

COMMUNICATION ON FUTURE WORK AT THE HILLCREST:

Sent on behalf of the City of Moose Jaw’s Communications Officer, Craig Hemmingway

 

“The City of Moose Jaw is completing the last phase of their East Feeder Main replacement project this fall. The East Feeder Main delivers water from our High Service Reservoir to serve approximately 12,000 people in Moose Jaw.

 

The final section of pipe will run from Town ‘N Country Drive all the way to the High Service Reservoir Pump House that sits just east of the Lynbrook golf course driving range.

 

This means that construction will impact Hole #8 and Hole #9 at the Hillcrest Golf Club. The full impact will not be known until the contractor is selected and a full, joint on-site inspection can occur. 

 

There will be some work in August that impacts the existing cart path but, in an effort to reduce impact to the golf season, the City structured the contract so that full-scale construction would not begin until October 15.

 

The contract calls for the construction to be completed by December 31, 2020 and the contractor will be responsible for restoring any ground that is disturbed during construction. This restoration would occur as soon as weather allows in spring of 2021.

 

The City has committed to involving Hillcrest in the site inspections, restorations and discussions about how to minimize impact to the golf course.”

 

***The Hillcrest will keep our members and players updated on the project and we look forward to seeing the course back in play May of next season!

 

I hope everyone is having a great season!

 

Jas

April 28, 2020 Update

 

Good day members and players,

 

As I am sure most of you are aware, we are able to open the course for play on May 15th!

There have been many new policies and procedures put in place by our provincial government and health officials to safely open and run our facilities.  Please see the Covid -19 link for more information.

With the opening date set for May 15th, we have taken into consideration the 2 weeks of play we have lost along with wanting to operate in good faith with the situation everyone is currently navigating through and will be offering all of our memberships this season for $1200 + tax

We will still offer the new members rate of $1000 as well.  (All memberships will go on sale Wednesday, April 29th- they will be available for purchase at the pro shop or over phone) With the cart use only allowing one rider per cart, we are unable to guarantee cart availability, therefore, there will be no unlimited half cart seat passes this season, with the new option of purchasing cart punch cards to be used during the season. 

Our driving range and putting green are currently closed until further notice. Members will be able to book online or by phone May 10th @ 6:00am and non-members will be able to begin booking May 12th @ 6:00am. 

We are currently putting the last touches on our new app which will be launched next week, please watch for details on our website and Facebook page. 

 

It will take some time to get used to the new changes at the course, please take note of the following:

 

There will be a booth set up where you will do your first check in – here you will confirm your tee time, order your beverage and food and confirm if you have a cart. Once the group ahead of you has teed off you will be radioed in for your tee time. Please ensure you are not arriving at the course no more than 15 mins prior to your tee time.

 

Payment will be made outside the pro shop – we will accept credit or debit payments on all purchases on the wireless device provided. Please note, the debit/credit machine will be sanitized after every use and will offer the tap option. There will also be e-transfer options available as well.

 

All beverage and food orders will be “take out/curbside” orders.  These can be called into the clubhouse at any time and will be available to be brought out as a pick up option. Please take into consideration that we will still have the food and beverage options available, therefore, there will be no outside food or beverages (including alcohol) brought into the course.

 

All of our staff will be properly trained in sanitizing and proper cleaning and disinfecting practices.

 

PLEASE NOTE: There will be no Leagues and no Tournaments, therefore all Sr Men’s and Ladies leagues will be cancelled until further notice along with Men’s night not running Wednesday evenings.  All tournaments will remain on the booking list until we reach a two week out date to either cancel or re schedule.

 

***We will be hosting a social distancing course cleanup day at the course Wednesday, May 6th @ 10am. We will have bags available for everyone, if you could bring your own gloves and masks(if you wish) please do so.  There will be sanitizer and cleaner on site.  All cleanup will be taking place around the course and it is very much needed. Please let me know if you are able to join us.

 

Thank you to everyone for your understanding and for your patience as we venture through our new normal and we look forward to offering the game of golf as an option for our community to safely enjoy as of May 15th.

 

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me via email or phone 693-1921
