We Are Open!


We are extremely pleased to inform you that we have been open since May 15, and are enjoying terrific conditions.


Take-away Friday at Echo Ridge


This Friday afternoon and evening, June 5th, you can order take-out food from Echo Ridge to snack on while playing, or to take home and enjoy after your round.  You don't have to be golfing on Friday to order, you just need to be hungry.  


Call us at the proshop to order at (306) 332-4653 and we will take care of dinner for you!  Click on the "Restaurant" tab at the top of this page to see the menu.


COVID-19


We are also very pleased to report that our golfers have made the transition to complying with all of the new requirements set out by the Saskatchewan government and the Saskatchewan Health Authority made necessary by the COVID-19 pandemic.


Echo Ridge has developed policies and procedures to keep our customers and staff safe, and will continue to do so.  The guidelines set out by the authorities will change and evolve over the golf season, and we will change with them in order to provide you with the best golf experience.


We will ask for your continued patience and understanding as together we learn the "new normal" way of golfing.


Golfing Echo Ridge during the 2020 Season

  • We will strictly adhere to guidelines established by local, provincial and federal governments and health departments.
  • Our regular policies and procedures will remain in effect other than exceptions noted on this page.
  • The restaurant is closed at the present time.  Although June 8 has been announced as the date which restaurants may open, we feel it is very important that we do it right, and operate in a safe and responsible manner.  We are working on procedures which will provide the safest environment for our valued customers and for our staff.  In the meantime, we will be offering take-out food on Friday afternoons and evenings. Please monitor this site for developments.

Reserving a Tee Time
  • Golfers MUST have a pre-booked tee time to enter the golf course property.  Walk-ons are not permitted.
  • Echo Ridge Golf Course has the right to match any number of golfers less than 4 with other players to form a foursome.
  • There will be a maximum of 4 players per group.
  • Due to the limited number of tee times available, singles are not able to book on-line at this time. Instead they are required to call the proshop and may be paired up with a group.

Arriving at Echo Ridge For Your Round
  • To prevent crowds from gathering in the proshop area, golfers must not arrive more than 20 minutes before their scheduled tee time.
  • Signage has been placed throughout the course to inform golfers of operational changes and sanitation practices.
  • Please obey all signs and directional arrows.
  • The proshop will be limited to 4 customers at any given time.
  • One person per power cart, unless they are from the same household.  This is your responsibility to accurately inform the proshop.  Other provinces having this same restriction have seen golfers stopped and questioned by police, bylaw enforcement officers, or public health officials.  Those that could not prove their shared residency have been given substantial fines.
  • NOTE:  we are unable to guarantee that a cart will be available for your tee-time due to the new COVID-19 policies in effect.
Playing Your Round
  • Tee time intervals have been increased to 12 minutes to allow for distancing.  Golfers must practice physical distancing of 2 meters at all times while playing as per the mandated guidelines.
  • All ball washers have been removed.
  • All bunker rakes have been removed.  Feel free to improve your lie.  After hitting from the sand, smooth the surface with your foot.
  • Flag sticks are not to be touched or removed from the hole.  Cups have been fitted with an insert allowing you to easily retrieve your ball without touching anything else.  
  • Washroom facilities on the course will remain closed.  Facilities at the clubhouse are available, but will be restricted to one person at a time.
  • Drink/snack cart is not allowed to operate at this time.

Our Precautionary Steps to Stop the Spread of COVID-19
  • We have increased the frequency of cleaning, sanitation and disinfecting of all locations, especially high touch area such as counter surfaces, public restrooms, door handles, light switches, golf carts and more.
  • Our staff has been instructed in hygiene, sanitation and food handling and its impact on preventing the spread of communicable diseases.
  • All motorized golf carts, pull carts and rental clubs will be sanitized prior to each use.
  • Employees on site will be kept to a minimum and have been directed to increase the frequency and duration of hand washing.

Our Expectations of You the Golfer
  • If you have a cough, fever, or have been in contact with someone who is not feeling well, do not come to the golf course; we do not want you to spread the infection.
  • Practice physical distancing in the parking lot, around the proshop, at tee boxes, in the fairways and on the greens.
  • We will have hand sanitizing stations entering and leaving the proshop.  However, please bring your own towels and hand disinfectant as an extra protection.
  • Refrain from picking up "found" balls on the course.  You don't know who they belong to or where they have been.
  • If you are riding in a golf cart, ensure that your cellphone and personal property remain in your golf bag as much as possible - away from high-contact areas of the cart.
  • Please adhere to all COVID-19 signage and rules.

As the season progresses, Echo Ridge will continue to monitor the recommendations of government and health officials, as well as industry best practices.  We will pass along updates and relevant information through this website and our social media channels.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at (306) 332-4653, or at echoridgegolf@sasktel.net.
