Registration open for curling season at Hirsch Creek Golf and Winter Club

New protocols are in place for the 2020/21 curling season due to COVID-19 restrictions

Registration is officially open for the 2020/21 curling season at Hirsch Creek Golf and Winter Club, and there are several changes changes in place this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

All curlers need to register and pay for the season in advance during the registration period from Sept. 27 to Oct. 4. The club said it is unable to put the ice in if there aren’t enough curlers registered for the season. It takes about 21 days to put the ice in, so if there are enough curlers, it hopes to begin the curling season in late October or early November.

Teams can also be registered when individuals sign up, but the club asks to please ensure all players on the team are registered by Oct. 4.

Registration is available in the pro-shop from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and in the lower lounge 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday to Saturday nights.

Individuals are asked to call 250-632-4612 if they cannot make it during those times and the club will arrange an alternate time for registration.

There will also be no Junior curling this year, except for competition teams, due to COVID-19.

Visit the Hirsch Creek Golf and Winter Club website for more information.
