**TO BE UPDATED AS WE GET CLOSER TO GOLF SEASON IN 2021**
We are happy to be welcoming golfers at the Minnedosa Golf & Country Club this season with minimal changes to your daily round. The COVID-19 virus has spread across the world and has wreaked havoc on individuals & businesses here in Manitoba. Minnedosa Golf & Country Club recognizes the significance of the impact this virus has and is having in our province and assure you that the well-being of our staff and the general public is our number one priority. For this reason, we are deciding to open our golf course only under the stipulation that all those who come to the golf course are strictly abiding by the rules that we have set in place to protect everyone.

All of our club tournaments are a go and will be conducted via tee time rather than shotgun starts until it is deemed safe to do otherwise.

Participants of these leagues are responsible for making their own tee times in groups strictly limited to 4 with the same restrictions as daily play.
