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

After a week in the deep freeze I figured I would send out a quick update on what is going on at the Hillcrest to keep your mind on track to sun and golf coming up in a short 90ish days!
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome two new board members, Chris Knoop and Brock Nelson! The board has appointed the two members (as per the Hillcrest Bylaws and Policies) to fill the current vacancies that we have on the board. We thank both Chris and Brock for showing interest and stepping up to be a part of our team of board members!
The washroom, kitchen and clubhouse expansion/renovation is on schedule – we are hoping to see the walls go up next week and the project will be on track to be completed in March! We are still accepting donations towards the project, in return you do receive a charitable tax receipt! Every little bit helps us get to our final goal and we thank all of those who have donated!
Please mark your calendars for Wednesday, April 1st at 7pm for our Hillcrest AGM. At this time the plan will be to host it in the Clubhouse, more info will follow closer to the date.
**Please note, our new email address is now firstname.lastname@example.org**
