IMPORTANT COVID INFO:
We are operating under ORANGE level protocols.
RESERVATIONS: Tee times are now set to work on 15-minute intervals to help stagger the flow of players entering and exiting. We are allowing 30-minute gaps between groups to manage traffic control and allow for clean up and sanitizing of all sim touch points. To ensure social distancing, when necessary, we will have a communication system in place to control when customers enter our facility.
SOCIAL DISTANCING MUST be practiced at all applicable times.
MASKS will be required by “all” customers when walking through common areas. These include the entry and exit lanes, corridor to the simulators, corridor to the washrooms, and space in front of the bar service counter and check out the area. Except for during any modified stage 2 period, masks will not be required once players are seated at their sim tables, or when playing their shots.
Mask policy will have to be mandatory for “all” customers. Our indoor golf is not an essential service. We must protect all our customers and staff to the max. If a customer claims he or she can not wear a mask for the short intervals of time needed to walk through the common areas described above, for whatever reason, that is unfortunate for them. No mask = no entry.
Food & Beverage Service: Last call is 8:30 and Tables MUST be cleared by 9:30pm.
NEW COVID “ORANGE LEVEL” PROTOCOLS EFFECTIVE NOVEMBER 7.
GOLFOMAX runs 2 operations. 1) An indoor golf facility, and 2) Ancillary food & beverage service. Both have separate City permits.
Under both categories, we are restricted to a capacity limit of 50 people.
Our golf operations will continue to run 7 days a week from 7am until past midnight.
Our F&B service will follow new bar and restaurant rules. Our policy is “last call” at 8:30 and all tables must be completely cleared by 9:30pm.
WE OPENED FOR OUR 26th SEASON ON OCTOBER 3.
We are operating with a “new normal” to ensure all our customers and staff are safe as we all deal with the covid situation.
GOLF SIMULATORS: We have built new wood partitions between the sims that extend out to 5.5 ft, and installed glass panels above them reaching up to a total of 6.5 ft. This has created a more enclosed area / bubble that restricts air flow from adjacent simulators. We have installed touchless hand sanitizers in all the sims. All sim touch points are sanitized after each group completes their round.
CHARITY GOLF TOURNAMENT:
Our 25th anniversary Charity tournament scheduled for Eagle Creek in June 2020 had to be cancelled due to the covid pandemic. We celebrated our 20th anniversary Charity tournament in June 2015 at Kanata Golf Club. Many thanks to all our prize donors and sponsors, our volunteer staff, and all our 136 participants. Together we raised $14,000 for the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) and the Ottawa Children’s Treatment Centre (OCTC).
HONORARY LIFETIME MEMBER, RALPH “MICK” MCCLEAN.
With our 20th milestone season, we granted one of our longest playing patrons with an honorary lifetime membership. Mick, a former member at Hylands who is now 89 years young, has been playing at the Max twice weekly since we opened in 1995. He has probably played more rounds of golf and drank more coffee than anybody else. After his rounds, he enjoys his usual pint in the lounge with his buddies, telling tall stories about his golf game and past career in the Navy.
Mick joins Lloyd Swick, another long time patron who unfortunately past away recently at the age of 94. Lloyd was given an honorary membership in 2012, in part because he was a very sweet guy and always keen to work on improving his game. This was also in recognition of Lloyd being the driving force behind the War Animals Memorial unveiled at Confederation Park in November 2012.
KANATA GOLF CLUB CHAMP.
GOLFOMAX owner Dru Lafave won the 2017 Kanata Senior Men’s Championship, along with the Match Play Championship, and the Senior Net Match Play Championship. Not a bad season for the old guy.
