    Subject: Temporary Closure of RAVEN’S ROOST on Friday August 13th

    After consulting with both Interior Health (IH) and WorkSafeBC, we made the decision to voluntarily close the Raven’s Roost yesterday (Friday, August 13) due to a positive COVID-19 test result by a restaurant staff member.  Out of an abundance of caution, we spent the day engaged in deep cleaning of our restaurant facility.  Unfortunately, this process also led to postponement of the Rock the Roost event on Friday evening. 

    IMPORTANT:  the pro shop remains open and golf course operations are otherwise continuing as normal.

    The Raven’s Roost is open as of  9:00 AM today (Saturday) unless something changes with regard to the guidance being provided by IH. 

    For the next two weeks our staff will all self-monitor and all staff will wear masks—again, out of an abundance of caution and in support of providing a safe work environment and guest experience. 

    Thank you for your patience and understanding.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please email joanna@purcell.golf.

    We are in ongoing discussions with Purcell regarding their latest proposal for replacement holes and future development of the golf course. The discussions have taken much longer than anticipated and the Board apologizes for the lack of communication on progress.   

    Our respective lawyers have been working on a documented agreement that we will be bringing to the membership once it is available. The document will include details of the development plan, agreed upon time lines for the construction phase and rates over the transition period. Both our legacy and new members are considered under the proposal.

    Once a documented agreement is received we will be sharing it with the membership and we will outline the next steps in the process. 

     Again we apologize, but we wanted to ensure that complete details are made available to the membership.  

    Attached is a description of the current plan from Duncan McLeod, President of Purcell.

    Golf Canada Update – Handicap Changes

    Golf Canada has converted to the new World Handicap System (WHS). While there are many changes behind the scenes, there are a couple of things that you need to be aware of when entering scores or using your handicap.

    First, the Stroke Index on the scorecard (New scorecard) has been changed as a result of the course being re-rated under the new rules for the WHS. If you look at the attached scorecard you will see that from the White Tees hole number 1 which used to be rated as the 18th hole in terms of difficulty, but is now rated as the 13th most difficult hole.

     

    The second change to note is the maximum score you can take on a hole for the purposes of determining your handicap. There is now a single rule in effect for all players regardless of your current handicap. The maximum score per hole is Net Double Bogey. Net Double Bogey is determined by the par for the hole, your handicap and the Stroke Index for the hole.

    For example, if a player with a 10-handicap playing from the White Tees scores an 8 on hole #2 then the maximum score they record for handicap purposes is 7. Hole #2 is a par 4 and its Stroke Index is 5 so the player is entitled to a stroke on the hole. Net Double Bogey is calculated from Par (4) + double Bogey (2) + Strokes Allowed (1) = 7.

    If that same player scores an 8 on hole # 1 then the maximum score, they can record for handicap purposes is 6. Hole #1 has a Stroke Index of 13, which is greater than the players handicap of 10, so the player is not entitled to a stroke on the hole. The score is determined as Par (4) + Double Bogey (2) + Strokes Allowed (0) for a 6. If your handicap is higher than 18, you will be entitled to multiple strokes per hole, relative to your handicap and the Stroke Index on each hole.
