Consuming alcoholic beverages not purchased at Hunters Pointe is a violation of provincial law and is therefore prohibited. Guests found to be in possession of outside alcohol will be removed from the facility immediately without refund of fees paid and future playing privileges may be suspended. Hunters Pointe reserves the right to confiscate any and all outside alcohol, search the property of guests and prohibit further play of guests.
Proper dress code is in effect on the golf course at all times, unless deemed otherwise by Hunters Pointe management. Shirts must have a collar (mock or other), no denim, cut off shorts, track pants or other garments of that nature. Proper footwear must be worn. Soft spike rule in effect. All dress code uncertainties will be left to the sole discretion of Hunters Pointe and violations will prohibit play on the golf course.
Guests of the club are afforded 6 day advance tee time booking privileges. Groups consisting of twelve or more players may reserve outside of this window, pending prior management approval. A valid credit card and phone number are required for all guest reservations.
Tee Time Cancellations
Tee times must be cancelled at least 24 hours in advance and 48 hours in advance for bookings of twelve players or more. If the cancellation policy is not adhered to, the individual responsible for the reservation will be charged the corresponding public green fee rate for all bookings made in their name.
All guests must check-in at the Pro Shop to receive a playing receipt for all services before proceeding to the first tee. If a guest arrives at the first tee without a playing receipt, they will be asked to return to the Pro Shop for proper check-in.
Pace of Play
All guests must play the tee that is most appropriate for their ability and at all times keep pace with the group playing immediately ahead of them. Course marshals, in their sole discretion, may determine if a group is out of position. Groups out of position will be asked to speed up play and catch the group ahead of them. If a group has not returned to proper position after two holes of play, the group must pick up their golf balls and move to the proper position. If a group remains consistently out of position, they will be removed from the golf course. Course marshals are empowered to execute the pace of play policy. Failure to follow a marshal’s instruction or harassment of any kind will result in the entire group being removed from the course without refund and/or suspension of future playing privileges.
Hole by Hole Pace of Play Time Par
Under certain circumstances, guests with a disability or medically related condition may receive handicap flag privileges. In order to obtain a handicap flag, a guest must produce a doctor’s note or handicapped parking permit to a management representative in advance of the day of play. Grantees will be issued handicap flag privileges that are valid for the duration of the current golf season. Hunters Pointe may withdraw/deny handicap flag privileges at any time. While a handicap flag grants a golfer exemption from daily/normal cart rules, the following restrictions still apply:
•Carts may not be driven on or between greens and sand traps
•Carts may not be driven within twenty feet of greens and/or approaches
•Carts must stay on paths when parked on or at tees
•Carts may not be driven into roped areas
•Handicap flag privileges are extended to the cardholder only, not their playing partners
•Cardholders shall be aware of turf conditions and take care to reduce damage
•When Hunters Pointe is operating under a cart path only policy due to abnormal ground conditions, handicap flag privileges may not be available
Rain checks will only be issued in the event of poor weather conditions or medically related circumstances. All other extenuating factors, including pace of play, will not warrant the issuance of a rain check. Rain checks will be issued in the form of a monetary value based on the value of the green fee and cart (if applicable) purchased. An eighteen hole rain check will be issued to members/groups who have played less than nine holes, a nine hole rain check will be issued to members/groups who have played more than nine holes, while no rain check will be issued to members/groups who have played more than sixteen holes. Group bookings of more than twelve people are subject to tournament/event rain check policies, as outlined in the group outing information package.
All guests are expected to conduct themselves in a way that is befitting of a lady/gentleman and hereby agree to abide by all policies established by Hunters Pointe. Any intentional/unintentional breach of golf club policies or behaviour deemed to be inappropriate or offensive by Hunters Pointe may result in automatic removal from Hunters Pointe without refund and/or suspension of future playing privileges.
Guests are responsible and held fully accountable for any and all property damages that they may intentionally or unintentionally cause while on the premises, and agree to allow Hunters Pointe to debit their credit card for any and all replacement charges and/or other related expenses, including but not limited to, labour costs and repair.
Health & Safety
Every guest must protect his or her own health and safety by acting in compliance with the law and with the safe practices and procedures established by Hunters Pointe.
