Book a tee time online

Effective May 30, 2023, you can book a tee time online up to 3 days in advance beginning at 7 am daily. If this is your first time booking online, you'll be required to set up a new customer profile. We recommend using the email address that you used on your existing Golf Burnaby profile. That way you may be able to avoid the process of player validation at the till. Because the person booking the tee time is fully responsible for the reservation and is assumed to be playing, please be ready at check-in to validate your reservation with your ID and the credit card that was used to secure the reservation. This is required to prevent no-shows, inadequate notice for cancellations, over-booking (more than one tee time per person per day between both Riverway and Burnaby Mountain golf courses), and confirmation of the player identified in reservation. We will not honour any reservation booked through a third party.


Tee times are generally available from sunrise to sunset. Some times are not available due to frost delay, course maintenance, advance tournament and pre-paid group bookings. Early morning lead groups are expected to set the pace of play for the day.

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.

Tee time booking policies

Tee time availability may be restricted due to tournaments, events, league play, course maintenance, or frost delay.

You may not book at both golf courses on the same day.

A maximum booking of one tee time (4 players) per person is permitted per day. In order to be equitable, Golf Burnaby staff will cancel additional (subsequent) bookings on the same day and/or alternative golf course. If you book more than one tee time per day, you are subject to having your tee time booking privileges suspended and/or being charged for the additional booking.

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

Online bookings must be cancelled by calling the pro shop. Whenever possible, please allow 4 hours notice for same day tee times and a minimum of 12 hours notice for tee times that fall in the first 4 hours of sunlight. We appreciate as much notice as possible so others may have an opportunity to play. Giving advance notice will ensure you remain in good standing with your online golfer profile.

Groups failing to show up for a tee time without cancelling online are subject to the suspension of booking privileges in the future.

If you need to modify (but not cancel) your existing reservation (e.g. adding a fourth player to a threesome), please call the course directly. Please note that we will do our best to accommodate modification requests, but they are not always possible.

Advance booking fees

We 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 an additional booking fee of $10 to secure an advance booking. To enquire or book, please call the Golf Operations office from 1:30– 3 pm at 604-297-4493 or email [email protected]
