COVID-19 – RULES AND REGULATIONS REGARDING CHECKIN, PRACTICE & PLAY

In order to open the golf course during the current COVID 19 pandemic, our management team and executive committee are required to implement several new rules and policies.

These changes are designed to protect the safety of both our members and staff.  The Gage Golf Club respectfully requests that all members and staff make themselves fully aware of these new rules and policies.  Although we hope that all members and staff willingly comply with these changes, the course management and executive committee are required to strictly enforce these policies and if required, discipline members and staff who blatantly disregard the rules.

Clearly, we hope everyone understands the requirement and that these changes were made with the best interests of our members and staff at heart.  The executive will be reviewing provincial and federal legislation, recommendations from Golf Canada and Golf New Brunswick on a regular basis. We will update our local rules and policies regularly to ensure your safety and golf experience at the Gage.
