Board Affirms Restrictions to Walking on the Golf Course

At the October 6th Board meeting, the Board held a discussion about the pros and cons related to allowing non-golfers to walk on the golf course. Everyone understands that it is not safe when golfers are present, but there are times each month when the course is closed for maintenance and for overseeding in the fall.  This topic came up again earlier as a suggestion from one of the community members during the public comment period. The Board is committed to addressing all the comments we hear, and this topic is consistent with our goal of preserving and enhancing the peaceful enjoyment of the property for the permanent residents. 

The Board relies heavily on our committees for direction and sought input from both the Recreation Committee and the Green Committee.  The Recreation Committee fully supports creating walking opportunities for members but when it comes to the golf course, relies on the Green Committee. The idea of allowing members to walk on the golf course was first brought to the Green Committee in 2017 from the then titled Facility Planning Committee. This time, the Green Committee reconsidered their previous concerns and recommendations and with the best interest of the POA in mind, they continue to recommend restricting member use of the golf course for walking at all times. Safety remains their key concern. 

All but three holes on the golf course are watered with reclaimed water that under state law must not come in contact with people. Watering of the course is done overnight so that there is no planned contact with golfers. Irrigation system testing is done on the monthly closure days during the day so any problems can be identified and during the fall overseeding process, watering is done during the day almost continuously for the first two weeks. During these times, chemicals are also applied to the course that should not come in contact with people or pets. There is no predictable time during closure periods that watering or chemical applications can be guaranteed to not affect walkers. The Board voted on December 1 to reaffirm the restriction to non-golfers walking on the golf course. They also recognized that non-golfing Members are still welcome to drive their carts on the paths along holes 1 and 14 to access the Country Club from the community. 

For reasons that we cannot easily change, this community was planned and constructed without sidewalks or designated walking paths.  Efforts have been made recently to add walking opportunities and more are under consideration.  Recently, a walking path around the perimeter of the lodge and tennis areas was completed that provides leisurely exercise and beautiful views. The new striping on Canyon Lake Drive North, and along Longhorn and Continental has created safe walking areas along those streets. Access is provided to the trails on the BLM land behind the Fire Station through a gate at the back of the ski boat parking lot next to the station. Keys to the gate are available at Member Services. We are also fortunate to have a large network of trails and paved bike paths along Salt Creek and within the Audie Murphy community just outside the East Gate.  


We appreciate hearing from the community about their concerns and desires for enhanced amenity. We encourage members to email the Board at board@canyonlakepoa.com and attend our monthly Board Meetings. We will continue to consider each one, and report back when decisions are made.
