House Rules Regarding the Consumption of Alcohol on Club Premises
Batteaux Creek Golf Club requires that members are personally responsible for their conduct and the conduct of their guests in all matters involving the consumption of alcoholic beverages on the Club premises. Control measures are put in place by the Club to ensure the safety of members and guests, but at no time are to be regarded as a substitute for personal responsibility.
The Batteaux Creek Golf Club and Roadrunner Foods will at all times be in compliance with the terms set forth in the Liquor Licence Act and Regulations, which include: It is the statutory duty of each employee who serves alcohol to refuse service to anyone who appears to be intoxicated or to any minor. Members and guests may not bring alcohol onto Club premises. No alcoholic beverages may be taken from the licensed areas of the Club. All service staff and management are trained in the “Smart Serve” program, endorsed by the Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario.
Apparently Intoxicated Persons
If at any time a Club or catering employee is of the opinion that a member or guest is approaching or has reached the point of intoxication, the employee will not serve any alcohol to that member or guest. A member of the management team will be informed of the employees concern and the decision to refuse service of alcohol. Management will make every reasonable effort to ensure that the member or guest will leave the premise.
Club employees and management will make every reasonable effort to prevent an apparently intoxicated person from driving a vehicle. Control measures may include:

Any grievance should be placed in writing before the General Manager and Roadrunner Foods.
