We ask that each participant (golfer, vendor, volunteer, organizer) reviews the following information prior to coming to play in a tournament or event at Chilliwack Golf Club.

PLAYER'S ASSISTANTS:

PA's are not meant to be intimidating, their primary objective is to make sure you are having fun, being safe and respecting the golf course and your fellow golfers.  They are tasked with making sure everyone abides by the following policies and will provide feedback if and when a situation arises. 

If you need assistance during your round of golf, please waive down a PA and they will assist as best as possible.
