Further, you agree to observe and fully abide by all rules and regulations prescribed by the Club. Any failure in this regard will result in disciplinary actions.

As you are all aware, the virus can be transmitted by asymptomatic people and accordingly Willow Park cannot provide certainty that the virus will not be transmitted. The Club is taking prudent steps to impose and enforce appropriate protocols to keep members safe, but there can be no assurance that the virus will not be contracted by members, guests or employees. This is a risk that each individual must assess themselves, and if they choose to enter the facilities, to take the risk of either contracting the virus or transmitting it to others.

When entering the Willow Park facilities you agree to the following:

If you or anyone in your household has travelled to any country outside Canada, you will then not visit Willow Park Golf & Country Club for a minimum period of 14 days after the date of return to Canada.

  • If you are symptomatic or have been in close contact with someone who tested positive, stay home and do not visit the Club until: 
    • a negative test result has been received,
    • you are symptom-free,
    • the AHS mandated 10 or 14 day isolation period has been completed,
    • any additional AHS requirements have been met.
