NGCOA – BC Chapter Update download (2)
In September, a British Columbia member brought to (the BC Chapter’s) attention that their facility was deemed offside by their liquor inspector; they were given a warning and were told that a golfer was not permitted to buy an alcoholic beverage inside the clubhouse and take to the golf course as the golfer crossed the liquor red lines while doing so.

New BC Liquor Policy
A patron may purchase a drink in one licensed area at a golf course and take it to another service area at the golf course, as long as the patron takes a direct route between the service areas. This allows patrons to carry liquor between the licensed club house and the licensed playing area.
~ Excerpt from Erica Beck, Regional Director, NGCOA Canada – BC Chapter’s email memo today.
