A few golf options remain in the Comox Valley

Golfing options in the Comox Valley are limited as the coronavirus pandemic wears on.

Crown Isle in Courtenay is open to members only, but the driving range is closed.

Glacier Greens Golf Club in Comox will remain open “due to the ‘outside’ and ‘open space’ nature of activities on the property,” the website states. The pro shop will be closed for entry, but will be operating from the window on the east side of the shop next to the first tee.

Mulligans in Courtenay hopes to be opening soon.

“We will be at limited capacity because of COVID,” a message says.

The Comox Golf Club course, pro shop, restaurant and driving range closed as of 8 a.m. Monday, March 23.

The Park at Crown Isle is scheduled to open April 11, but the situation could change due to the COVID-19 situation.

Sunnydale Golf & Country Club in Courtenay closed as of Tuesday, March 24.

“We are taking this precaution to do our part in ‘flattening the curve’ of the COVID-19 virus,” the website states. “We will look to re-open when it is deemed safe to do so.”

Golf Canada CEO Laurence Applebaum is asking players to stay home during the coronavirus pandemic. Likewise, BC Golf is advising, ‘Not to play now, so that more can play later.’

“BC Golf would like to extend our full support in the matter of requesting closure of all play at B.C. golf courses,” CEO Kris Jonasson states in a letter to Dr. Bonnie Henry, Provincial Health Officer. “Staying away from golf facilities in order to do our part to ‘flatten the curve’ is the most responsible and prudent thing to do.”
