In spite of charges, golf course remains open
May 3, 2021 By Turf & Rec
Already charged late last week for illegally opening under the Reopening Ontario Act, The Bridges at Tillsonburg has been hit with additional charges. The southern Ontario golf course, which has been illegally open for play for more than a week, was initially charged Thursday, but has since been further charged with a second violation of the act, and five individuals with the club have been charged as well.
The club could face a fine of up to $10 million if convicted. Individuals charged could be fined as much as $750. The matter is scheduled to be heard at the Ontario Court of Justice in Woodstock on June 3. The golf course was still taking online tee time bookings as of the weekend.
CTV News reports that individual golfers were being pulled over by police upon leaving the golf course Sunday. Police were photographing golfers playing the ninth and 17th holes from their position on John Pound Road.
A total of 10 golfers were ticketed.
