Re-Opening Announcement

Furry Creek Golf & Country Club closed on March 21st in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. This was a very difficult decision as we had just succeeded in preparing the golf course for a very early opening on March 1st. The course was not ordered closed by any authority, the management decided to close in the interest of safety for our guests, team and community.

The general public is now well aware and supportive of safety measures related to stopping the transmission of Covid-19.  With new procedures in place, we are confident we can provide a safe return to playing golf.

Friday April 24th, Furry Creek Golf & Country Club will re-open for golf. We will do so slowly, cautiously, ready to adapt as required.  The safety of our guests, our team and our community remain our top priority. This concern will be evident in the manner we operate.  We will be adhering to the recommendations the Federal and Provincial Health Authorities.

The clubhouse and restaurant are to remain closed.  Golf tee-times will be available in 20-minute intervals, from 8:30am to 2:30pm daily, and must be booked online.  Upon arrival, you will notice a minimal number of our staff on site, all wearing masks, gloves, and adhering to physical distancing.  It is critically important that anyone feeling unwell or who has been in contact with an unwell person, stays home.  In accordance with the Quarantine Act, anyone that has returned from travel abroad in the last 14 days is asked to self-quarantine, and not golf.  We need everyone’s cooperation to keep golfing a safe and enjoyable option while remaining committed to stopping Covid-19.
