Welcome to the 2021 Golf Season
It is well advertised and documented that the absolute best practice to contain the spread of COVID-19 is to stay home and limit visits to public places for the essentials. Our first priority is the health and safety of our team members, golfers, guests and our communities through these challenging times.
As our staff and management prepared for the 2021 season, we have watched carefully the progress of the COVID-19 Pandemic. We have monitored closely the recommendations and precautionary measures of the World Health Organization, Health Canada, Disease Control and our provincial health officer. While we acknowledge that the absolute best practice is to stay home, given the nature of the sport of golf amidst wide open spaces, and with rigid protocols in place, the game can continue to be played, keeping both golfers and employees safe from the transmission of the COVID-19 virus. It must also be acknowledged that golf does offer health benefits that must not be overlooked. World Golf Foundation studies have shown that playing golf will result in improvements in life expectancy and quality of life, as well as physical and mental health.
Windermere Golf and Country Club is committed to the ongoing safety of golfers and our staff. As a result, a number of precautionary measures have been put in place to ensure that everyone will stay safe in and around Windermere Golf and Country Club. Safety will rely on the full cooperation of golfers and our team members from the time we arrive at the facility until the time we leave.
While we do hope that our environment will return to normal in the not too distant future, for now, this mode of operation will become the new normal for the not too distant future. We acknowledge that every golfer will make their own decision as to whether it is in their best interest to golf during these times or not. However, should you choose to join us, we will welcome you and require your full cooperation with regards to the measures that have been implemented for everyone’s safety.
