Course Alerts


This page has been designed to provide flexibility for both the Grounds Department and Pro Shop to tweet up to the minute news on course happenings to our members and the public all year long.  This information may be accessible without logging on to the member only section on either a computer or mobile device.   These updates could include course closures, frost delays, course aeration. temp. hole closures, course maintenance, etc.  

Procedure When a Frost Delay

On the morning of a frost delay, or potential frost delay, the pro shop and greens staff will liaise to decide whether there will be a delay or not.  If there will be no delay, there will be no postings or emails provided to members.

Prior to the first tee time, if the decision is to delay, a notice will be posted to Twitter and to the Club website, as well as an email sent to those players on the daily tee sheet notifying of the delay.

By 9:00 AM (or earlier), an update will be posted indicating a new start time or a continuation of the frost delay.

By 10:00 AM (or earlier), an update will be posted indicating:
  1. Weekdays - a new start time or a continuation of the frost delay.
  2. Weekends & Holidays – a 10:30 AM start time or a 12:00 Noon shotgun start.
There will be 4 options for a potential frost delay:
  1. NO DELAY – Tee times will run as scheduled.
  2. DELAYED first tee start – Tee times will be as per the tee time draw and run from the first tee on an alternating daily basis as follows:
  • First daily frost delay – Tee times will be in order as per the daily draw sheet with all times delayed. The first tee time on the draw sheet will start when the course opens for play.
  • Second daily frost delay – Tee times will be in order as per the daily draw sheet starting with the first time shown on the draw sheet that coincides with the actual time the course opens for play. All tee times shown before that start time will be deleted.
  • Third and subsequent daily frost delays– The procedure will alternate between that used on the first and second delays on a delay/delete basis.
  1. WEEKENDS & HOLIDAYS - In the event the delay goes past 10:30 AM, on weekends and holidays only, the daily draw sheet will be deleted and a 12:00 Noon shotgun start will be held. Those wishing to play must phone the pro shop to book a starting tee position in the shotgun.
  2. COURSE CLOSURE – In the event the delay goes beyond 12:00 Noon on any day, the course will be closed for the day.
