Terms and Conditions

Book a tee time online

Effective July 5, 2023 you may book a tee time online up to 5 days in advance beginning at noon daily. If this is your first time booking online, you will be required to set up a new customer profile. We recommend that you use the email address that you used on your previous Golf Burnaby profile. This way you may be able to avoid the process of player validation at the till.

Tee times are generally available from sunrise to sunset. Availability may be limited due to frost delay, course maintenance, tournaments, leagues, and pre-paid advance group bookings. Tee times may be made through the free Golf Burnaby App or through the Book a Tee Time button on this website. We also hold a limited number of tee times for phone-ins between 12 pm (noon) and 1 pm daily - at which time they are released online to the public. 

Early morning lead groups are expected to set the pace of play for the day and complete their round in under 4 hours. During inclement weather in the off season, please confirm your tee time by phone. During winter months, early tee times may be delayed if frost or sub-zero temperatures are an issue. Snowfall may prevent the course from opening.

Important tee time booking policies

Please note that the person booking the tee time assumes responsibility as 'captain' for the booking and is assumed to be playing, so please be ready at check-in to validate your online reservation with your ID. We will not honour any reservation booked through a third party.

A maximum booking of one tee time (4 players) per person per day is permitted at either Burnaby Mountain or Riverway. In order to be equitable, Golf Burnaby staff will cancel any additional bookings made on the same date at either golf course. You will also be subject to having your tee time booking privileges suspended and any upcoming reservations cancelled. If you forget your password, please use the reset password feature as all newly created duplicate profiles will be deleted and/or merged.

To qualify for Senior (65 years and up) or Junior (18 years and under) rates, ID is required at check-in unless your email has been registered to a profile that already includes this information.

Tee time cancellation policy

You may cancel, make changes and modifications to your reservation through the Golf Burnaby App or by logging into the tee time booking platform through this website up to 2 hours prior to your reservation. Although we require a minimum of 2 hours to cancel or modify reservations online, whenever possible, please provide a minimum of 12 hours notice for tee times that fall within the first 4 hours of sunlight. We appreciate as much notice as possible so others may have an opportunity to play.  

Groups failing to show up for a tee time without cancelling online or contacting us are subject to the suspension of booking privileges in the future and must pay for the missed tee time to be reinstated.  If a member of your party cannot make it, please reduce the player number in your reservation as each person who does not show is assigned a no show under the 'captain' who made the booking. Once a person reaches 5 no shows (one foursome = 4 no shows), booking privileges are automatically suspended through the software and any future tee times will be cancelled. Reinstatement of booking privileges will take place once the missed tee time has been paid for. 

If you have difficulty cancelling your reservation online, please contact the pro shop to avoid penalty fees and suspension of booking privileges. Please do not call the pro shop to make changes to online bookings with respect to player names within your reservation - this may be done online, through the App, or by staff when you check in.

Advance booking fees

We currently hold 3 mid-day tee times throughout most days for advance bookings at both Burnaby Mountain and Riverway but availability is extremely limited in high season. Each player must pay a non-refundable advanced booking fee of $5 + tax to secure an advance booking over 5-14 days in advance. To enquire or make an advanced booking, please email [email protected].  We will be making changes to the advance booking process in early spring.
