This dress code is mandatory for all players. Improperly dressed golfers will be asked to change before playing. If you are in doubt concerning your attire, please check with the Golf Shop staff before starting play.

Denim Policy

Denim may be worn in the lounge, dining room and patio areas of the clubhouse. They must be full-length, dark in color and cannot be ripped, torn, tattered, faded and or otherwise in poor or worn-out condition. Denim may NOT be worn on the Golf Course, Putting Greens or practice facilities at any time.

As a premier private club in Canada, Blackhawk aims to portray its first-class nature throughout the facility. We hope that members and their guests will aim to convey this standard with their attire at all times. The lounge and management staff reserve the right to deem an individual’s attire unacceptable and deny service.

Electronic Devices

The use of cellular phones and other electronic devices are permitted on property.  Phones should be set to silent mode at all times and is encouraged that any business or personal calls be conducted in the hallway or outside one of the entrances to the building.

Course Care

Proper care of the golf course is essential to the playability of Blackhawk. Raking bunkers, repairing ball marks and filling divots with the sand and seed mixture provided will ensure the pristine playing conditions we are known for. If you are riding in a cart, we ask that all members and guests do so with care and respect. Please observe the guidelines that are outlined on the Tagmarshal GPS system, follow all directional signs and use cart paths when designated. As a general rule, all cart use should be kept to the fairways whenever possible and out of the intermediate roughs and tall fescue grasses.

Pace of Play

Blackhawk has an established a pace of play policy of 4 hours and 10 minutes or less for a foursome. It is expected that all players will play "hit when ready" golf to maintain the pace guidelines. It is a group’s responsibility to keep up with the group in front of them. Please choose the appropriate tees from which to play - matched to your skill level - in order to meet the pace of play guidelines. The Power Carts are equipped with Tagmarshal GPS to ensure the pace of play standard is maintained.
