Every year Golf Burnaby reaches out to the community by opening their doors to celebrate the beginning of the golf season! These festivals take place at Burnaby Mountain on April 25 and Riverway on May 9 from 10am-1pm, and include the following activities:
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?
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!
I’ve taken a lot of golf lessons in my life, but, the first lesson I ever took was a Burnaby Mountain Golf Course. Growing up and living across the street from the course, much of my time was spent there; playing, practicing, and even working in the pro shop. I was fortunate to receive support from both the Senior Men’s and Women’s clubs which I’m grateful for as golf has opened many doors for me.
Please note that Central Park will not open until 8:00am on Wednesday, September 2nd due to a maintenance issue. We apologize for this inconvenience.
This year celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the Burnaby Mountain Senior Men’s Golf Club. For half a century our friendly group of 190 gentlemen from various walks of life have been enjoying the warm comradery of each other’s company while playing golf together at the beautiful Burnaby Mountain Golf Course. Thinking of joining us? Please visit our website at www.bmsmgc.ca for more information about our vibrant club, its history, our memories, and the membership application process.
For most golfers, going to the driving range is the only way they can improve their game. While this is true and time well spent, we can make our time practicing more productive if we have a clear understanding of what our outcomes are after each golf shot. By using the poles at the end of the range as our guide, we can start to get a clear picture of whether or not we would have hit the fairway or green, or missed and hit the ball into the rough or trees. As a guide, here are the distances right or left of your target and this is where you would be if your golf ball traveled one pole right or left.
100 yard shot - 5.5 yards right or left
150 yard shot - 8.5 yards right or left
200 yard shot - 11 yards right or left
250 yards - 14 yards right or left

Short Game Practice Areas
Our Putting and Chipping areas are now open at both Burnaby Mountain and Riverway Golf Courses.
We encourage all patrons to come on down and practice their short games. You will notice a yellow rope dividing the area into sections. We do ask people to follow some simple rules.
• We have create stations at both the practice areas and we ask that only 1 person be inside each station at a time.
• You must stay inside your station and not hit shots from anywhere else.
• As there are limited spots we may enforce time limits. So please be mindful of your time while using the practice areas.
Thank you for your patronage and we will see you at the Golf Course soon!
