Player’s Handbook

Welcome Golfers.

This is our home.  Members and our guests appreciate having a clean, well-maintained place to escape to.  Let’s keep it that way.

The following procedures are in place to ensure members and guests have a safe, enjoyable golf simulator experience.

  • Pay before you play. All tee times must appear on the online booking calendar. Walk-in members need to book and pay for tee time prior to swinging a club. If you start early, finish early.

  • Members and guests will be charged for the time booked or time used if they use extra time.

  • No alcohol permitted in the club at any time.

  • Take care of the club.  Put waste in containers provided.  Clean up after yourselves. If you bring it in, please bring it home.

  • 24 hours cancellation time preferred. Please call ahead or visit your private membership area if need to change your tee time.  Players MUST CANCEL at least 4 HOURS BEFORE THE SCHEDULE RESERVATION TO CANCEL OR CHANGE A BOOKING.  Cancellation or changes within 4 hours will require full payment for time booked.

  • Arrive 15 minutes early to get ready to play.  If ready to start early, finish early.  Finish one minute early instead of one minute late whenever possible.  Watch the clock to know when your time is ending.  If playing extra time, arrange for payment by email to teetimes@southrivergolf.ca.

  • NO OUTDOOR FOOTWEAR.  Leave outdoor shoes on the mat provided outside the club door. Keep our club clean and dry. Guests must bring indoor shoes and leave outdoor shoes on the shoe rack outside the club. Golf shoes or running shoes are fine but NO METAL SPIKES (no real golfer still has these do they?)

  • At least one responsible adult per 3 under 16 year-old facility guests.

  • Golfers acknowledge The South River Indoor Golfers Club is under video surveillance.  Tampering with camera system or damaging equipment by not following procedures in the Players Handbook will result in financial compensation being paid to the South River Indoor Golfers Club.

  • Guests and members acknowledge that photography and/or video may be recorded and used for promotional purposes without compensation.

  • Bring your own clubs. Please make sure club faces are clean before play.

  • Keep food and drinks at the provided tables. NO FOOD OR DRINK INSIDE SIMULATOR at any time!

  • Players are responsible for the equipment inside the simulators.  No swinging clubs outside of the simulators for safety reasons.

  • The putting area is for putting practice. Absolutely no chipping is allowed. Members may use the putting area any time at no additional charge. Guests are welcome to use the putting area prior to a booked tee time.

  • If you bring it into the club, bring it home. Keeping costs down requires members and guests to do their part keeping our club neat and tidy. Clear the tables and chairs before you leave.

  • No pets allowed.

  • Children are only allowed in the room when using the simulator or putting area under direct adult supervision.

  • Member’s watching others play are welcome in the viewing area if there is space available.   Guests can arrive 15 minutes before their tee time.   Non-playing guests must have prior permission to be in the viewing area.

  • Have fun! (yes, that’s a rule)

Play safe.

  • Exterior doors to the club must remain closed while the simulator is in use.

  • Before you swing any club, check your surroundings (monitor, other players etc.) to ensure no one or obstacle is within your range of swing.

  • Only one person in a simulator at a time.
  • Be aware of your backswing and follow through at all times.

  • Your shot must be directed forward.

  • Swinging should always take place near hitting area of the mat.

  • Practice swings must be done in the designated hitting areas.

  • Be alert of where you stand or walk and stay out of someone’s range of swing.

  • Report any accidents immediately.

Members and Guests are financially responsible for any damage caused by failure to follow the directions of the Players Handbook or Waiver. Failure to abide by any of the above procedures may result in cancellation of the remainder of your paid simulator time without compensation.
