We are dedicated to offering you the best possible service and playing conditions… and are constantly striving to improve. Your patronage is always appreciated and we hope you enjoy the test of golf Burlington Springs offers.

Players renting and driving an electric cart must be a minimum of 21 years old and hold a valid full G licence. The cost of damage resulting from operation of an electric cart is the responsibility of the renter.
Reckless driving of any sort is not tolerated and may result in the driver’s ejection from the course.

Soft spikes or athletic shoes are appropriate. Metal spikes and other types of footwear are not.
Pace of Play:
Burlington Springs targets a 4 hour round for the collective enjoyment of our customers.
Our Players Assistants may offer pace of play tips to slower groups to help keep the course on schedule – please follow their advice or instructions. All golfers can benefit by following these tips (below) and promoting them to the rest of their group. Thanks for your observance.
Pace of Play Tips:
- Stay in POSITION – keep up to the group in front of you, then you won’t ever have to worry about the group behind you
- Play READY golf – whoever is ready to play, regardless of distance, should hit or even putt when safe to do so
- Spend 2 mins MAX looking for your lost ball – keep a close eye on where it went in and drop another quickly if you know it’s gone
- Play APPROPRIATE TEES – Blue tees are suited to players who regularly shoot in the mid 80s or lower. Consider moving up to the Light Blues from the Whites if you’ve lost some distance. Remember, shorter shots into the greens typically produce better scores
- Minimize PRE-SHOT ROUTINE – have a pre-shot routine but keep it simple, take one practice swing, trust your first line when putting, be ready to hit when it’s your turn, don’t be a “Ben Crane”
- Use your POWER CART effectively – drop your partner at his/her ball and drive to yours, or park midway between and walk over
- Have great CONVERSATIONS – but don’t start telling the story when it’s your turn to hit or putt.
Remember, the entire golf course is behind you and, if you’re playing at a 5 hr pace, then so is EVERYONE else. Be considerate of that and we’ll all wait less and enjoy our round at Burlington Springs even more.
Rain Check issuance due to inclement weather is always at the discretion of the Pro Shop, per the following formula:
- If you tee off on #1 and decide to stop playing before teeing off on #2 then you will receive a full rain check equal to the value of the green fee you purchased
- Once you tee off on #2 and decide to stop playing before teeing off on #10 you will receive a rain check equal to half the value of the green fee purchased.
- Once you tee off on #10 no rain check will be provided.
Should our weather siren be sounded due to the threat of lightening, all players must make their way to the clubhouse, other buildings, or their motor vehicles. Avoid open areas, high ground, and tall trees.
Consult with the Pro Shop and/or listen for an announcement on ‘return to play’ after the storm passes.
A wide selection of alcoholic beverages is available from our Bunker Bar and Grill or the Beverage Cart.
Per Ontario’s Liquor License and Control Act, alcohol not purchased on the property is prohibited so please do not bring it to the course. Any such alcohol is subject to seizure to ensure our legal compliance. We may refuse alcohol sales to an individual or group in order to serve responsibly and ensure the safety of our customers and employees.
Please repair all divots and ball marks (free repair tools available in the Pro Shop), rake all bunkers, and observe all signs and ropes. We take great pride in our golf course so please leave it in the same condition you wish to find it.
