Directors’ Message 2021

Welcome to the 2021 golf season. We are excited to announce that this is our 60th Anniversary. To help us celebrate, we would ask anyone who may have photos of the early days of the golf course to please share with us and we will post them on our website. 

The golf course officially opens on April 15. We would like to thank all the of patrons who used the honor box. Every little bit helps toward the installation of a new watering system. With the costs of everything on the rise, we have had to raise our rates this year. Our new rates for the 2021 year are attached. You may pay by cheque, e-transfer to golfriondel@bluebell.ca , cash, debit or credit card. For now, the clubhouse will be open Thursday—Sunday 10:00-4:00. We will resume regular office days and hours in May.

We would encourage you to visit our web page and also the Nelson Kootenay Tourism page at www.nelsonkootenaylake.com . Enter to win accommodation and rounds of golf at courses in the area. Boccalino has kindly partnered with our golf course to provide accommodation for winners of our draw.

Because the pandemic has worsened, we will be strictly enforcing the provincial guidelines in order for us to be able to remain open. 

-Social Distancing MUST be maintained. Keep 2 club lengths distance between yourself and others.

-Only one person at a time in the Pro Shop and MASKS MUST BE WORN IN THE PRO-SHOP so throw a mask into your golf bag.

-Washrooms will only be open during office hours. The outhouse on #7 will remain closed at this time.

-There will be limited trash & recycling cans on the course. We ask that you please take your trash home with you.

-Power carts and pull cart rentals will be available. At this time rental club will not be available.

As the Covid-19 situation evolves, these conditions remail subject to change.

We have been very lucky to have people volunteer their time for our golf course. Thanks to those members and we would like to encourage others to help with adopting a hole to maintain the tee box area and greens. If you see ball marks on the green, fix yours and one other. We also would love to have more on the board, so feel free to volunteer.

Our Annual General Meeting will be announced when we feel safe enough to hold one.

Your Board of Directors.
