COVID-19: LGCC Golf to Open with Additional Safety Measures

Lloydminster, AB/SK – The 18-hole course at the Lloydminster Golf and Curling Centre will open on Friday, May 15, 2020, albeit not business as usual.

“Whether people come out and play by the rules or adjust to the conditions, we’re confident avid golfers and enthusiasts will enjoy a round of golf, and it can be done safely under the COVID-19 adjustments put forward by the Government of Saskatchewan,” said Jordan Newton, Manager of Emergency Measures Operations. “The underlying message is course users must follow the risk mitigations in place to keep the reopening phases moving forward.”

Guidelines include spacing out tee times, one player for each motorized cart unless the golfers live together, leaving flagsticks in the hole and using raised cups, removing ball washers from the course, taking payments over the phone and the closing of sit-down bar and beverage services. The driving range remains closed until further notice.
