Mission Bay Clubhouse
WISHING you a safe and enjoyable Summer with families and friends!
This page is for the purpose of alerting all community members as to the revised opening schedule of Mission Bay facilities for Summer 2020.
The Mission Bay and Preserve Boards of Directors met Friday, May 29th to discuss protocol and dates for re-opening all Clubhouse and community facilities. Montana "Reopening the Big Sky" from the governor's office - COVID-phase 2 was taken into consideration in determining a course of action.
Here is a link to this directive:
MONTANA - REOPENING THE BIG SKY
The decision was made to re-open the Mission Bay Clubhouse in stages. The first stage facilities re-opened on Thursday, June 4th, 2020. This opening encompasses the Mission Bay Pool and Spa with adjoining patio areas, the new Tennis/Pickleball courts, and the exercise room.
There will be access to hand sanitizing stations, hand sanitizers, masks and wipes throughout the facilities. There will also be additional cleaning and disinfecting of these areas done each day per CDC recommendations.
Open hours will be the same as before the closure. Please refer to the HOA website and your homeowner Welcome books for specific hours and rules of operation.
Scroll down for specific details regarding openings
pools, courts and exercise room.
All facilities are for Mission Bay and Preserve members, families and immediate house guests only.
At the same meeting, the Boards made the decision to extend the closure of the Great Room at the Community Center. This extension of closure was confirmed at subsequent Steering Committee meetings in June and July.
This closure includes all group activities, regularly scheduled, and special events. The safety and well-being of all community members remains of utmost concern; this weighed heavily in the decision to postpone this portion of the re-opening. Great Room closure will be re-evaluated every month to determine a new re-opening date.
Mission Bay HOA offices and Mission Bay Real Estate offices are open, and will be adhering to social distancing and sanitation guidelines. Please direct any questions regarding re-opening, events, landscaping, general concerns:

Please continue to be aware of measures in place meant to keep all community members safe. If you feel you are at risk or vulnerable during this time, please stay at home. The safety of residents continues to be of utmost concern.
Suggestions below are followed by a link to recommendations from the CDC (Center for Disease Control):
Practice heightened hygiene. Wash hands frequently and use hand sanitizers.
We highly encourage social distancing and no shaking of hands.
Sanitize access points, handles, remotes, continually used surfaces on a frequent schedule.
We will continue to monitor recommendations and orders provided by the CDC (Center for Disease Control) and local government officials to ensure all are kept informed and to provide further guidance.
The link below provides information on how to protect yourself, and what to do if you think you are sick:
POOL AND SPA
The Pool and Spa are open for the summer. A major refresh of both pools was done; they are clean and sparkling! The Spa is at 104 degrees. Regular pool and spa hours will be from 8:00 am til dusk. A reminder: Adult swim hours are from 8:00-9:00 am every morning.
TENNIS AND PICKLEBALL COURTS
The new tennis and pickleball courts at Mission Bay are now open for play. Currently, there is no sign-up sheet necessary to play on either the tennis or pickleball courts. We will determine if this is necessary based on the amount of traffic and interest.
Let us know what you think of our beautiful new courts!
Please enjoy both the pool and court facilities. You will notice that there are hand sanitizing stations throughout the area for everyone's use. Restrooms, showers will be open with extra disinfectant on hand. Also, tables and chairs are spaced for social distancing guidelines. Please be aware of guidelines and adhere to them for safety's sake. There are wipes available to wipe down patio chairs and tables after use.
The workout room is now open for use: hours are from 5:00 am to 10:00 pm. Please continue to adhere to the policy of wiping down all equipment after use.
During the initial phases of re-opening, we request only two members utilize the exercise room at one time. There is a sign-up sheet posted for use - this is so that members don't come over and find the gym already full and have to wait. Please indicate when you will work out - if there is no one signed up, and no one in the gym, you are free to enter. Please just be aware of the next reserved time. We would like to accommodate everyone safely and to the best of our ability!

Mission Bay & Preserve
Beach and Trail Etiquette
All Mission Bay and Preserve streets are open for homeowners to enjoy and take walks; all trails and the beach area in the Preserve are for Preserve homeowners only. No motorized traffic, including golf cart use, is allowed on any trail throughout Mission Bay and the Preserve, for any homeowners.
The Mission Bay beach is for Mission Bay Homeowners use only, the Preserve beach and boathouse for Preserve owners only. This is to allow all residents to enjoy their surroundings.
Preserve owners may use golf carts on trails to launch kayaks and canoes at the beach.
Mission Bay Homeowners: Please stop in the HOA office and get your hang tags for cars and golf carts, to use when parking at the Mission Bay beach. There are signs that all non-Mission Bay visitors parked at the beach will be towed; this is to allow plenty of parking access for all of you that live here!
If you have visitors that park at the beach, share your hang tags with them during their visit.
Preserve owners do not use hang-tags at their beach at this time.
LOT MOWING & WEED SPRAYING
Weed spraying continues throughout the community. With the continual rain, dandelions and other spring weeds are rampant this year. Please let us know if you need assistance finding a landscaper to spray weeds and/or mow your lawn, especially if you have an undeveloped lot and haven't had a chance to look over the condition of the grasses and weeds. There is a 6" maximum height on grass on lots in the community - we are currently contacting homeowners and sending in mowers/sprayers for lot owners that do not take care of this in a timely manner.
For landscaper recommendations:
FOR OUR DOG OWNERS
There are Dog-I-Pots installed throughout Mission Bay, and two installed in the Preserve. Mission Bay Pots are located at the beach, Eagle/Hawk intersection, Montana Landing and the Village trailhead. The Pots have been successful in containing refuse throughout the community. Thanks to all pooches and owners using these on a regular basis!
A reminder to keep all dogs leashed, whether on streets, vacant lots or the Golf Course. Mission Bay complies with City of Polson regulations requiring all dogs to be leashed in these areasl.
