We are pleased to announce that Nanaimo Golf Club will re-open on May 30, to members and their guests; it is still closed to the public.

We have implemented a number of protocols to aid in the health, safety and enjoyment of players and employees while on the property. We ask that all people visiting Nanaimo Golf Club during this time observe the protocols that the Club has put into place for everyone's safety.

COVID-19 Protocols as of May 30, 2020

  • Stay at home if you or anyone in your household have symptoms of COVID-19 or feel sick in any manner at all.
  • Self-isolate if you have traveled within the last 14 days.
  • Practise physical distancing by ALWAYS staying a minimum of 2 meters away from other people especially while at the Club. Do not shake hands or high-five/fist bump.


  • Arrive no more than 30 minutes before your tee-time to warm up at the driving range and practice greens.
  • Follow all established traffic-control patterns at the Club.
  • Enter the course via the pathway between the Pro Shop and driving range.
  • Wash your hands at the handwashing station by the main entrance upon your arrival, and again at the handwashing station near the 18th green before you leave the course.
  • Tee times are at 8-minute intervals. Please maintain this gap while on the course.
  • Observe proper golf etiquette: remember to repair your divots and ball marks, and smooth out the bunker with your shoe (no rakes are on the course). Players are not allowed to play through the group in front.
  • Leave the flagstick in the hole while putting, and use the Golf Ball E-Z Lyft system with your putter to lift your ball out of the hole.
  • Golf cart rentals are available: 2 people can ride the same cart if they're from the same household; otherwise, only one rider per cart is allowed.
