Guests of Overnight Guests

All overnight guests please wear your wristband. Guests staying overnight may invite friends to visit. Often guests enjoy inviting friends for a meal, a drink or a game of golf. If you would like your guests to have use of the recreation facilities while they are here, please inquire at the front desk. A small charge applies and your guests will be issued with a certified day receipt. If you would like you guests to golf with you, please see the front desk to purchase your golf voucher.

Meal Visitors

If you are coming to enjoy a meal on the patio, in the lounge or dining room and are not staying overnight with us, you are welcome to take a stroll on the grounds, play a game of ladder golf or bocce or enjoy a view of the lake from the front lawn while you digest your meal. Please be prepared to show your meal receipt if you are approached by our staff. Generally not more than an hour after your meal, it's a good time to go without overstaying your welcome. Enjoy your visit but please remember the Waterfront, Pools and all Recreation Facilities are reserved for our overnight guests and that this policy is strictly enforced. If you have your pet with you, please assure that it is kept out of all licenced areas including the big front lawn and off of our walking trails. Local Beaches at Sibbald Point Park or west of Jackson's Point can make for a pleasant destination before or after a meal and are generally not crowded on weekdays.
