Cedar Hill Golf Course re-opens

Saanich, BC – As of May 5, Saanich will re-open the Cedar Hill Golf Course.

“We are thrilled to be able to re-open the golf course and provide another safe outdoor space for the community,” said Mayor Fred Haynes. “We have appreciated the community’s interest in the course and pathways and their understanding of the closures that were in place. This has helped us to maintain the course and enable its re-opening. We look forward to seeing golfers back on the course and enjoying this beloved community resource.”

In response to COVID-19, we have implemented the following changes:

  • More time between tee times
  • No walk-ons – golfing is by prearranged tee time only
  • Power carts are single rider or players from the same household
  • No score cards or pencils will be provided
  • No food and beverage services
  • Gathering places will be closed

The golf course will re-open in accordance with best practices outlined by the National Golf Course Owners Association of Canada. Saanich will continue to put the safety of our staff and the public first by implementing health guidelines including physical distancing, staying home if sick and personal hygiene expectations.

We wish to thank the public for their patience and understanding during our unexpected closure.
