We've adapted our business and taken steps to protect staff, members, and customers during the COVID-19 pandemic. We feel that with our efforts working together we can continue to make golf an enjoyable and COVID-safe activity.
What we are doing:
Elbow Springs is committed to maintaining a clean and safe environment for all of our members, guests and staff. We've increased cleaning frequency and re-evaluated our protocols.
We've kept tee times spaced to 8 minutes apart to ensure ample spacing between groups while optimizing tee time availability.
Our staff are wearing masks in all areas indoors and in outdoor cases where they cannot maintain a distance of 2 meters apart.
We are doing a health check for each employee as they start their shift. Any employees feeling unwell are not working.
We've spaced out tables and reduced capacity in the springsgrill to allow for social distancing. In high times, we may have the availability to make additional seating available in other areas.
What you can do to help us:
If you feel any symptoms such as cough, sore throat, difficulty breathing or fever, PLEASE STAY HOME.
We are asking all of our guests to wear a mask in all areas of the clubhouse, including in the proshop, springsgrill and administration offices. If this isn't possible we have washrooms accessible from outdoors at the driving range, and provide full restaurant service on the springsgrill patio.
Please wash or sanitzie your hands frequently.
Make an effort to stay socially distanced with people outside of your cohort when possible.
Frequently Asked Questions:

Do you have options for contactless score keeping?
Yes, our new mobile phone app is an easy way to get the score card, GPS, and other features right on your phone! Download it here.
Are there any COVID-19 specific changes to the rules of golf?
