Course Update

Posted by Luke McGrath on June 23rd, 2020

Hello MVGC community,

Some updates to share.

We have received our shipment of demo drivers, fairway woods and hybrids from Taylormade, as well as two sets of right handed demo irons. If you are looking into upgrading your equipment, we can now help you get what is right for your game. 
Soon we will be announcing an incentive program for anyone who purchases 2020 Taylormade equipment from the shop (this will include custom orders).

If you’ve been in the shop recently, you will have seen that we received our shipment of Skechers golf shoes. Members receive 15% off their first pair!

The Yukon Golf Championships will go ahead as planned on July 4th and 5th, just without a formal prize ceremony afterwards. Registration is $40 for members, $90 for public players and $25 for juniors. All participants must have a valid Golf Canada handicap. Sign up in the shop before July 2nd. The greens on holes 2 and 15 will be open for play for the tournament. 

One reminder we would like to give to all players is that because we are so busy some days, we are trying to accommodate as many golfers as possible. Occasionally we will send a group that is only playing 9 holes off the opposite nine from the side we started on for the day. This means that if you play faster than the pace of play on your first nine, you may find a group teeing off ahead of you on the second nine. We have no desire to hold anyone up in their round or penalize anyone for playing fast, but we are sending players off the back nine based on a 2 hour and 8 minute pace. This is why you could possibly be held up for a few minutes at the turn. 

Thank you for all your patience. The golf course is in tremendous shape, and the greens on holes 2 and 15 will be back to normal very soon, thanks to Derek and his staff.
