Club Information

Members,


Our course Superintendent and his team have done an outstanding job with the course.  Many projects have been completed already this year.  Some of the projects completed to date include, cleaning up the maintenance area, sprinkler repairs and other related jobs that did not get finished last year are almost completed, and sand has been put into the bunkers on hole six so they are now playable.  All of these projects have been completed with a very limited number of team members.  


Please keep all carts on pathways, off mounds and stressed areas, and 30 yards from all greens, teeing areas, and mounds to avoid excess compaction.  All efforts will improve the playing conditions while reducing the workload on our maintenance team.

 Your help is greatly appreciated.


Thank you

Good day golfers,


With over two weeks of golf completed with significant restrictions, we are continuing to make changes that will hopefully enable us to slowly move to a new 'normal'.


  • Holes - We have modified the foam in the holes on the greens to enable the ball to enter the hole. We ask that ALL golfers take extra care when retrieving the ball from the hole so as not to touch the cup liner or flagstick.  The ball should be able to be retrieved very easily as it drops less than an inch.  Additionally, we ask that each golfer is careful not to damage the edges of the hole.


  • Men’s League- We will be running Men’s League each Wednesday starting June 10, 2020.  It will be TEE times ONLY, NO Shotgun.  In summary, league members will be able to play anytime during the day on Wednesdays.  They will be able to play with anyone they wish so long as at least one of the players in their group is another league member.  Men's League members will be able to call the pro shop 8 days before to book a tee time (i.e before all other golfers). A separate email and registration form will be sent explaining the format, prizes, cost, etc.  


  • Reciprocal Play - Riverview members will be able to play Cottonwood Coulee and Bow Island for only $25 (18 holes). You will need to produce your membership card.


  • Match Play Event - We will be running a Members Match Play event this year- The event is sponsored by Body Building Depot.  I will send information and a registration form in a separate email to all members.


  • Online Tee Time Booking – Currently the tee sheet opens at Midnight for online booking for members.  Effective May 22, 2020, the tee sheet will open at 6:00 AM, therefore our members will not have to get up in the middle of the night to book a tee time.

  • Public Tee Online Booking - Currently public golfers can only be added to the tee sheet by phoning the golf course.  This enables our team to provide the required information about the restrictions and safety measures in place.   Effective May 22, 2020, public players may book tee times online.  This means that members may add golfers to their tee times when they book online.  ALL public players that are booked on the tee sheet MUST have an email and if possible a phone number.   Emails will enable us to contact each player easily and efficiently to provide the required restrictions and safety information rather than each player calling the pro shop.  If the public players are booked without an email and phone number, we may have to revert back to phone bookings for any public player.  Please ensure the required information is included when booking to allow this service to continue. 

  • Ladies League - The ladies league is contacting all ladies that are interested in participating this year.  Please check their Facebook site for more information at https://www.facebook.com/groups/1473973019550463/

2020 Newsletter #1

May 16, 2020

Good day Golfers The first 10 days of the 2020 golf season have passed and despite the numerous new rules and restrictions due to COVID-19 golfers have indicated they are just glad to be able to golf.   


I want to officially welcome everyone to the 2020 golf season. 


It is wonderful that we are now golfing.   The golf course is in fantastic shape, the greens are amazing, and the course looks in mid-season shape.  Our Turfcare team has been working very hard to ensure our members and guests have the best conditions possible.  Please remember our Turfcare personnel has the right of way on the golf course.  To respect the hard work our team is doing please keep ALL carts 30 feet or more from all greens and tee boxes and if possible, avoid driving the carts on the mounds and areas that are showing signs of stress.


I would like to introduce our Turfcare Team:      

  • Jordy Sautner – Superintendent  and his team:      

  • Eddy

  • Vince

  • Duane

  • Gary

  • Gord

  • Doug

  • Ryder


COVID-19 has changed the way the world conducts business, and the golf club is no exception. We all have had to adapt to the “new” rules and restrictions put on us to help us all stay safe. It only takes about 30 seconds once you arrive at the golf course to notice the changes. Our Pro Shop staff have been working hard to learn what is expected of them with respect to COVID-19 protocols, as well as the new procedures operationally. I am very proud of the team, as many of the team members are new and those returning were challenged with the task of doing many things differently this year to improve operations.


I would also like to introduce our Pro Shop Team:      


  • Krystal

  • Eric

  • Brady

  • Lauren

  • Victoria

  • Jaubron

  • Lindsay

  • Claire

Our team will work hard to provide our members and guests with the best possible experience.  Please say hello (from 6 feet) and welcome each of them.

Member and Guest Information


  1. Pro Shop – The pro shop is open!  Only ONE customer is permitted in the pro shop at a time.  Please use the hand sanitizer that is available at the pro shop door prior to entry. To allow for social distancing, the exit for the pro shop will be the back door. For golfers that are just checking in, and no payment is required, we will be able to use the sliding window.  No access to the clubhouse can be gained from the pro shop to comply with the restrictions around the opening of the restaurant.

  2. Bag Drop - We have a new Bag Drop station, just behind the 1st Tee box on the parking lot.  Please stop and drop your clubs off, then park your vehicle.  If you require assistance with your clubs please let us know and either I or one of the pro shop team members will carry your clubs to the cart area.

  3. Tee Times – We will be moving the tee times to 12-minute intervals effective May 23, 2020.

  4. Carts – As previously indicated we can only have one rider per cart unless the individuals live in the same household.  Therefore, when we move to 12-minute tee times, I fully expect that we will have times where all the carts are on the course leaving no carts to rent.  We apologize in advance for the inconvenience and ask for everyone’s patience and understanding.  We do have pull carts available. As a reminder, Riverview golf carts are NOT allowed in the parking lot.

  5. No Shows – In the event you are unable to make your tee time, please call the pro shop to cancel your tee time.  It is important to let us know as soon as you can if you are unable to make your tee time as we have golfers phoning every hour to book a tee time.  When a golfer does not show up for a tee time that results in a loss of potential revenue.  So far in 10 days, we have had 53 no shows.  If we had a chance to fill each of these tee times it could have resulted in a minimum of $2500 for the club.  Please help our club by phoning the pro shop to cancel your tee time, as we will need to capture all possible revenues this year.

  6. Tournaments and Leagues – As of today, we are not able to run any leagues or organized tournaments this year.  Outdoor gatherings were just increased to 50 people while maintaining 6 ft or 2M distancing.  We may be able to run the match play event as it is no different than arranging a tee time and possibly other similar types of non-gathering events.  NO shotgun starts.  I will keep everyone informed as new information and rules become available.

  7. Sanitization – I want to assure all our members and guests that we are sanitizing all touchpoints as often as humanly possible.  We want you to be safe and ask that each golfer uses the hand sanitizers located in multiple locations, to protect your fellow golfers and my entire team.

  8. Booking Tee Times – Many members have had some difficulty booking tee times online.  For clarity, if you are a public golfer, or a member trying to book a public golfer you must phone the pro shop to book. Please call me if you require assistance. 9.  Putting Green- With gatherings increased to 50 people, the putting green will be open ONLY for golfers that are waiting to tee off.  Up to 4 golfers will be allowed on the putting green at one time and golfers must stay within one of the 4 quadrants and maintain a minimum of 6 feet or 2 meters social distance at all times.  Golfers may arrive no earlier than 15 minutes prior to their scheduled tee time. Golfers arriving early will be asked to wait in their car.  Golfers should not arrive at the course for the sole purpose of using the putting and chipping area.

  9. Pace of Play – We have had some instances of slow play, even with (20 & 17) minute tee times.  As we move to the 12-minute tee times, all golfers need to ensure they keep up with the group immediately in front of them.  Slow play poses many challenges to a golf course, and when social distancing is thrown into the mix, it creates an even bigger problem.  We want everyone to enjoy their round, and the pace of play is one of the major determinants people state for round enjoyment.  Please do your best to keep the pace and our course marshal will help those in need.


I want to thank all our members for doing their part to ensure our club is in compliance with all the orders.  I know substantive change is tough and requires sacrifice and I am again proud to be affiliated with a club with such great members.

Weather-Related Course Evacuation - Covid-19

May 12, 2020

Good morning golfers,


To comply with the requirements in the CMOH orders, golf courses are required to have procedures in place to deal with weather events that may result in golfers having to leave the golf course all at once.  With a full golf course, we could have as many as 72 golfers leave the course at the same time, which would result in gatherings that would exceed the 15-person maximum.   Therefore, the below links will provide the procedures to follow in the event the weather forces golfers from the course.  


I have the full procedures available on one button below, and a summary of the complete procedures on another button.  These documents can be downloaded and printed for those that wish to do so.  Our pro shop team will also be available to help direct players in the event this plan has to be implemented.


Another weather event is frost delays.  These typically happen in the spring and fall, but if not addressed could result in gatherings of over 15 people very quickly.  I have included a link to the frost delay procedures as well. These procedures will only impact those golfers that book the first few tee times in the morning, as they were designed to limit the impact on the entire tee sheet.


These procedures can also be found on the COVID-19 section on our webpage https://www.golfriverview.com/covid-19 .


We appreciate your patience and understanding since many changes to the "usual" way of conducting business at the golf club have been made, but we are dealing with very unusual circumstances.  It has been said many times by many people that we are in this together, and will get through this together.  Be kind to one another as this is a stressful time for many. 


Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.


Respectfully,


Todd Read BSc. BSc. MBA

RCGA Handicap - COVID-19

May 8, 2020

Good morning,


Many of our members have been inquiring about how golf scores are to be entered for handicap purposes since we currently have a device in place to prevent the ball from entering the hole. The following information from Golf Canada will hopefully help clarify the process.


Written by Golf Canada


The COVID-19 global pandemic is an unprecedented and difficult time for Canadians and Golf Canada stands with our entire golf community during this unprecedented time.


We all love the game for the escape it provides and its positive impact on our physical, social and mental well-being. We look forward to better and healthier days and when the time is right for Canadians to return to recreational normalcy, clubs and courses will be ready to welcome golfers back to the tee.


We continue to urge golfers to follow the guidelines from health and government officials to keep you and those around you safe, and to minimize any possible exposure to coronavirus. This is especially true on a golf course, where golfers, workers and operators should heighten their level of awareness on exposure to surfaces like flagsticks, golf balls, bunker rakes, tees, carts and scorecards. We all need to do our part to respect expert advice and make the right decisions to protect each other.


It is not the intended purpose of the below guidance to either encourage or discourage anyone from playing the game, but rather, in our governance role, to help golf course operators, committees and golfers better understand how the Rules of Golf and Rules of Handicapping apply to the various questions received by the governing bodies.

The Modernized Rules of Golf were drafted to offer each Committee the flexibility to make decisions as to how golf is played at their course or in competition and the Committee Procedures section of the Official Guide to the Rules of Golf (available online here) offers a significant amount of guidance and recommendations on how to address circumstances unique to each course or competition.


This flexibility will prove to be very helpful as Committees look to address many of the challenges they are facing within the current environment. While the Committee Procedures section is a tremendous resource and has much to offer, many of the current questions were not originally contemplated under the Rules of Golf and therefore there is no history or guidance provided. To better address the questions that have come about because of these unique circumstances and the related challenges, additional guidance can be accessed by clicking here. This will continue to be updated as additional questions are received.


As active seasons start to open across the country, we would like to discuss impacts on Handicapping.  From the perspective of the Rules of Handicapping, the most frequent questions received are primarily related to the acceptability of scores for posting to a player’s scoring record. In particular, modifying the hole and not requiring the player to “hole out” as required under the Rules of Golf. These are founded in a desire to minimize the possibility of exposing golfers to coronavirus and have included leaving the hole liner raised above the putting surface or placing various objects into the hole so the ball can be more easily removed. In these specific cases, ensuring guidance from health and governmental officials is being followed, a temporary measure is in place in Canada to accept scores played under these conditions for handicap purposes using the most likely score guidelines (Rule 3.3, Rules of Handicapping), even though the player has not holed out.


Please remember that this temporary measure is now in effect within Canada until advised otherwise by Golf Canada.

Course Rules - COVID -19 Update

May 6, 2020

Good evening,

The golf course is in the best condition it has been at this time of year for a very long time.  We thank our members and guests for following the new rules to help keep everyone safe.  Starting May 11, 2020, we will be removing the 2 PM booking restriction for public players.  Public players may book a tee time 3 days in advance, while members will continue to have 7-day booking privileges.

Our washrooms on the course are open.  Hand sanitizer is available in each washroom as well as a disinfectant spray that is to be used to disinfect all touchpoints.  Our team will also ensure the washrooms are sanitized regularly throughout the day. 

The Snack Shack is also open.  If you require a beverage or snack Dylan and Kelli will be happy to serve you. Please note that the 6 foot (2M) social distancing will apply, so please respect all rules.  All carts are to stay on cart paths to access the Snack Shack, NO Riverview carts are allowed in the parking lot.  

Remember to ensure you arrive at the golf course no sooner than 15 minutes from your tee time to avoid increased gatherings.  Additionally as a reminder, NO WALK ONS, you must have a pre-booked tee time.

All golfers are expected to review the golf course rules prior to golfing.  These rules can be found on the home page of our website (www.golfriverview.com) or you may review them by clicking the button below.

Effective May 13, 2020, we will move our tee times from 20 minutes intervals to 17-minute intervals.  We will continue to assess our intervals to ensure we are able to maintain all the necessary precautions so as not to put anyone at risk.   

As we decrease the tee time intervals there may be times when golf carts are unavailable and we ask for everyone's patience and understanding as we navigate these challenging times.

Take care,


Updated Course Rules

Course Closed- COVID-19

April 10, 2020

Golf Course Closure- CMHO order 02-2020

Good afternoon,

At Riverview Golf Club the safety of everyone is our top priority. In response to Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the CMOH order 02-2020, Riverview Golf Club is CLOSED to the public and its members until further notice.

Our Turfcare team will maintain the golf course and ensure it is ready for golfers when we are cleared to open.

Our clubhouse and pro shop will remain as it has been, closed, to all non-essential personnel.  For the safety of all, we ask that everyone respect the need for all of society to practice social distancing and refrain from visiting the golf club.  Citizens are welcome to walk the pathways of the golf course, respecting social distancing, however, the course is closed to all golfers, no exceptions.  

As indicated, a limited number of Turfcare Team members will be maintaining the golf course while the forced closure is in place.  Additionally, we will have contractors and workers moving forward with the hitting cages, deck, and other projects outlined by the board in a previous email.  All employees and workers will be following strict rules around social distancing and workplace safety to limit the spread of infection.  

We will be using volunteers when the time comes to help with projects on the golf course.  These projects will be coordinated by myself in conjunction with our Superintendent, Jordy Sautner to again ensure we are operating in a safe manner at all times.  I have had many calls from members offering their services in a volunteer capacity.  We thank you for your support and ask if anyone else is interested in volunteering to contact me by email or by phone.

This is unprecedented times and we ask that all members of society do everything within their power to reduce the spread of this virus. By doing so, it will shorten the duration of the restrictions and enable all of society to enjoy many aspects of life that we are currently not able to enjoy.

Please stay positive and safe,

Course Update

March 31, 2020

Good afternoon,


I wanted to provide everyone with an update on the opening date for the golf course.  The current weather forecast does not look good for the next two weeks which will delay getting the course ready for opening.  With that stated, we should know this week if the Alberta Government will follow what other provinces have done and label golf courses as non-essential businesses and order them to close until further notice.


An action plan has been drafted and will be implemented in the event we are able to open the course.  This plan will adhere to social distancing and sanitation rules.  Our primary objective is to ensure that we are doing everything within our power to protect our members and guests, which also provides safety to our community.   


I know it is difficult for all of us golfers to watch the weather get better which brings excitement for the upcoming golf season.  However, we must all be patient and ensure each and every one of us is taking every reasonable step to slow the progression of COVID-19.  The sooner the infection rate curve flattens, and the disease progression is slowed, the sooner we all can get back to life with some normalcy. 


I will endeavor to keep everyone updated with the projected opening date but until then, the golf course remains closed to ALL golfers, no exceptions.  Many individuals are walking around the course which is fine so long as social distancing is maintained.


Thank you for your understanding and patience.  Please be safe and we look forward to seeing everyone playing golf in the near future.

March 2020 Bulletin

March 1, 2020

2020 Golf Season


Good morning members and guests, I want to take this opportunity to welcome everyone to the upcoming 2020 golf season. We have had some changes in personnel over the winter, as Jordy Sautner has taken over as the Course Superintendent and I, Todd Read have moved into the General Managers role. The entire Pro Shop team is returning and will consist of Krystal, Lauren, Brady, and Kelsey and we will have one addition this year, Eric Andersen. Jordy will be hiring his turf care team soon. As announced previously, Kelli and Dylan Ireland will again be providing their outstanding food and beverage services this year. Please help me welcome our team.


It is important to note that our goals this year and going forward will be to ensure that great course conditions are again provided to our members and guests and that our club's environment and culture remain family-friendly and inviting to all golfers. This is the purpose of our club and will remain our objective. Any and all changes made will be with this purpose at the forefront along with ensuring our club is operating efficiently, effectively, and towards long-term viability.


In separate emails, I will be sending out information about the 2020 Junior Program, volunteer and course marshal requests, a new and exciting Men’s League format, and some other exciting changes. Additionally, to provide more timely communication I will be sending out a monthly bulletin, which will also be located on our website in the member's section. Please monitor our website at www.golfriverview.com as updates are being made to the site regularly. I look forward to the season and hopefully, mother nature will continue with the warming trend to enable us to begin golfing soon.


The Pro Shop will be open 12 PM to 4 PM each day during the week at a minimum in March and will increase when the weather provides a better chance for opening. Please bear in mind that I typically walk Page of 1 2 to the club, therefore there may not be a car in the parking lot, but the doors will be open.


Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.


Respectfully,

Board of Directors Bulletin-Financial Update

July 22, 2019

July 22, 2019

To all current members from the Board of Directors,

It has been with a great deal of sweat equity that we’ve made it to the half-way mark of our golf season.  The volunteers have been numerous and the club is grateful for the monetary and in-kind donations that have allowed for the survivorship of the Riverview Golf Club.

The volunteer flower garden crew led by club members Mary Klick, Fran Wahl, and Mary Wirth have tended our many flower beds and potted plants.  Thanks to Mary Klick for growing and donating a majority of our plants.  We also thank Sunterra Greenhouses for their donations again this year of some of our planters.

The Board is especially grateful for the volunteer hours and supportive efforts of Todd Read, Carolyn Irwin, and Ruth Schaffer for their help within the Club, dealing with technology, finances, and administrative issues.  


It’s also a good time to acknowledge the contributions of Kelli and Dylan Ireland and their clubhouse staff to the overall pleasant atmosphere at Riverview.  The continued support of members and the community in frequenting our Clubhouse boosts our bottom line as well.   

It is also important that we appreciate the efforts of our staff at this time as well. From Doug and all the Pro Shop staff to Carmon and the grounds crew, the Board has been grateful for your commitment to the Club during our transition.  It has been reaffirming to hear the many positive comments from visiting patrons, and club members, that Riverview is a pleasure to golf at and our course is in great shape.


Financial Highlights

On November 1, 2018, the Club had the following short term debts;

     78 vendors and suppliers                                                                       $ 350,615.10
     Town of Redcliff (2017 & 2018 raw water)                                            $   80,282.86
     Town of Redcliff (a loan for mower purchased 2015)                        $   31,487.57
                                                                                                               Total $ 462,385.53


The Club negotiated with vendors to reduce our debt by $77,995.34 leaving us with a new short-term debt of $384,390.19. This amount has been paid off in full by the Club. 

The Club Car cart fleet has been reduced by 10 carts, reducing our annual lease payments by approximately $9,600.00.

Mower equipment purchased under lease in 2017 was reduced to meet our needs. The 4 walk-behind greens mowers returned had never been used. This has an annual savings of approximately $1,000.00.

The Town of Redcliff has approved a loan of $315,000 over a ten-year term at 2.913% interest. The Club has accessed $211,770.73 of this loan to date.

Junior Program Instructors Needed

June 21, 2019

Junior Program Instructors Needed
Good morning,
The Junior Program has exceeded our expectations this year as we have 53 young golfers enrolled this year.  We have had 4 instructional sessions thus far with tremendous success by all accounts however, we are in need of TWO more instructors to help reduce the number of golfers in each group.  This will enable better one on one instruction and more importantly help with reducing the likelihood of accidents.
The volunteer commitment is 1 hour each week on Tuesdays starting promptly at 4 PM.  Lesson plans have been made which can form the basis of your instruction but are only a template to help provide direction and can be modified as each instructor deems appropriate.  The program ends on August 27, 2019.
The entire program is outlined on the Riverview Golf Club website or you may contact me at this email or at the phone number below.   The next lesson is on June 25, 2019, at 4 PM.
Your help will be greatly appreciated by the other instructors and the young golfers.   The experience thus far has been extremely rewarding and fun.
Thank you,
Todd Read

Members Match Play 2019

April 29, 2019

In addition to the current tournaments scheduled (listed on the website), we would like to add an additional event this year, a member Match Play Tournament. It has been many years since a match play event has been available to our members and it is our hope that the event will grow each year.


The event is open to all members. Based on the number of members that sign up, we could have a men’s division and a women’s division. If the number of women golfers is low then we will have everyone compete in one division.

   • Women will play from the Red Tees

   • All Seniors (50+ years of age) Yellow Tees

   • All other players shall play from the White Tees.

Handicaps will be based on the Tee’s being played and will be at 75% of current course handicap’s.


Every player will have a minimum of 2 matches as the event will be a double knock out, which means you have to lose twice to be eliminated. The Tournament bracket will be in the member section of the website as a link and will also be posted in the clubhouse. Upon completion of the match please complete the match play form (located in the Pro shop) and provide it to the Pro shop staff to enable the bracket to be updated.


The Bracket will be updated within 24 hours of time a match is completed and the match form turned into the Pro shop.Each match will have a timeline to complete to ensure the event finishes before the end of the season. Please respect these timelines as they will impact the next matches. This event is to promote camaraderie and fellowship and most important to have fun.


The winner of the event and the runner up will get their name on a trophy.


The Rules and the draw will be provided when all entries are submitted.  Registration will end on April 30, 2019 Matches will begin the week of May 6, 2019, Please register in the Pro shop.


The cost of the event is FREE for this year, and we will be soliciting people/companies for naming rights to the tournament.

Riverview Golf Club will be hosting a weekly Progressive Skins event again this year. This event is handicapped and is open to all golfers (members and non-members) that carry a valid RCGA handicap, 2/3 of your handicap will be used for this event. Payouts are determined by the number of players each week.


The entry fee is $20 each time you play and will run every Sunday starting April 28, 2019. Golfers wishing to participate may start their round as early as 11:00 AM. Please contact our Pro Shop for more details and to book your tee time.

AGM Summary 2019

March 24, 2019

The AGM took place today at 2 PM at the Riverview Golf Course clubhouse and we had an excellent turnout as the room was packed. The meeting was extremely informative, open, transparent, positive, and set the tone for the upcoming year. The members and guests in attendance were introduced to Doug Braithwaite, our new Manager, Carmon Dewald our superintendent, and to Kelli and Dylan Ireland who will be operating the Food and Beverage services at the Golf Club. Additionally, Derek Hirsch, from EBT Chartered Accountants provided the Clubs financials and was appointed as the auditor.


The meeting was chaired by Vice President Bill Duncan. The current board was approved to remain in place for this year, as they have worked very hard and operated well together since being elected in the fall of 2018 and the continuity will benefit all stakeholders. The financial status of the club was provided and will be made available to all members on the website in the member’s section in the coming days.


We encourage all members to visit the “new” website frequently as it will be updated regularly. The member section will have all the bulletins and newsletters, bylaws, financial information, etc. It is our goal to communicate effectively and regularly with our members.

We anticipate a fun year and once the snow leaves and the temperatures return to “normal” we look forward to seeing everyone at the golf club and at the many events we will be hosting.
