Foothills 9 Opening Friday, May 4th

Tee Times available starting at 9am
Yup that's right, we have renamed and reversed our nines. All regular play will begin on Foothills Hole # 1 (the old #10). Your tenth hole will be Rockies Hole # 1 (the old #1).

This Friday we are opening Foothills 9 to walkers only. No carts are yet allowed due to the wet conditions. But we are now taking tee time bookings 7 days in advance for tee times starting at 9am daily.

Watch this newsletter and our social sites for information on when carts will be available and when the Rockies 9 will be open.
About the Nines:

  • The majority of play will start on Foothills #1, but we will start on Rockies #1 the last week of each month.
  • In an effort to speed up play, we will be reminding all players to ring the bell on Foothills # 1 (their first hole of play) when they are clear of the green.
  • Our golf shop will have better visuals to monitor the pace of play and see groups on the course as we are now able to see all players on the 9th green.
  • For those golfers who wish to walk nine holes and ride nine holes it will now be very convenient to pick up a cart for the 2nd nine.

About the Scorecard:

  • The scorecard has been adjusted to read as two nines.
  • Golf Canada is in the process of updating the handicap system to read the same.
  • At the same time that the nines were reversed a committee was put together to review and analyze the handicaps for each hole. The new scorecard has been printed with the new handicap holes for men and women.
  • The new scorecard also includes Combo tees but they are designated with arrows to allow for more room on the scorecard for actual scoring.

About our Policies:

  • We ask that all golfers check in with the golf shop before teeing off.
  • We have purchased a tablet that will allow us to have a starter at peak times and to be able to drive out onto the course to check on groups and pace at any time with a real-time tee sheet.
  • Map cards will be provided to golfers not familiar with the golf course. These maps contain important etiquette and local instructions.

This new layout should make for a better pace of play. It will also improve the golf shop's ability to monitor what is happening on the 1st tee and on the course.
THANK YOU TO HARRY COLLINGE HIGH SCHOOL

We were very fortunate to have the students at Harry Collinge High School, and their Construction Technology Instructor Jared, create new hole signs for Foothills 9. The students did a fantastic job and the signs look terrific!

We have now asked the class to work on some directional signage updates throughout the golf course, so you will see more new signs coming soon!

Thanks Again Harry Collinge High!
GOLF CART USAGE POLICIES:

For the 2018 golf season we are asking all members who purchase an annual cart pass to acknowledge and sign our golf cart usage policy. Members will only be required to do this once during the season, either when an annual pass is purchased or the first time a cart is rented.

We are also asking all public players to sign our cart waiver and provide their contact information each time they rent a golf cart.

The board has received more than a few complaints about golf cart usage both from members and guests. Our new policies will allow us to provide both verbal and written warnings and to also revoke golf cart privileges if necessary.
