Golf Courses Benefit People and Wildlife

Golf Course Roughs and Trees create positive wildlife habitat.

More than 70 percent of most golf courses are rough and non-play areas including natural grasses, trees and shrubs. Combined with the open areas of fairways and greens, the golf course is an attractive wildlife habitat. An amazing number of species are making golf courses their home and Burnaby is no exception. If you have captured a photo of wildlife on a Burnaby Golf Course and want to share your experience please email golf@burnaby.ca with your photo.

Golf Out Reach Success Story

By making the effort to take the basic introduction and instruction out to the schools of Burnaby, our efforts have reached more than 30,000 students. Many of these students may never have been exposed to the game of golf if not for our efforts. 

The advantage of Custom Fit Golf Clubs

We can have a love-hate relationship with our golf clubs at the best of times. It is easy to blame a bad shot on them, and it is easy to place all the praise on your new $700 purchase when you hit a good shot. But is this the best way to get the most out of your game?

Getting clubs that are custom fit to you is so much more than just getting the most distance out of your driver (although that is a big perk). It is also making sure that we stay within the "Goldilocks" zones when looking at launch angle and spin rate. (Remember that storybook take with the too cold, too hot, and just right porridge?)

Why is this so important?

Your personal launch monitors

Improve your swing! Both Burnaby Mountain and Riverway are offering ES15 launch monitors on their ranges! You will be able to measure your distance, ball speed, spin rate, smash factor and club speed for each shot. If you wish to analyze your swing's DNA, come check out our innovative new launch stalls! Easy to use with instant feedback - 15 minutes for only $6.00 (tax included). By connecting your smart device to the ES15 through Bluetooth, you will also have access to the free app and can record your session, save and analyze your data. Come and check it out!
