Riverway Golf Course hosts Kwalten Polytechnic University Turf Students

 

Kwantlen Polytechnic University's professor of Horticulture and Turf management brought 10 students to Riverway Golf Course for an educational field trip. This hands-on seminar focussed on pests and pest management as part of the program's “Professional Pest Management-module 1”. The students learned about common pests that most golf courses in the Pacific Northwest must deal with. The field trip included a 1 and ½ hours lecture session followed by a question/answer time. 

 

 

This session was followed by an on course “walk thru” on hole 18.

Fall and Winter Golf Course Conditioning Preparation

Every year, in preparation for the fall and winter months, Golf Burnaby goes through an extensive maintenance program to keep all our golf courses the driest in the lower mainland. With golfers in mind, Golf Burnaby’s putting green maintenance programs occur in early October to ensure the best playing conditions through all of September (one of the best golfing months of the year).

Putting greens are aerified to ensure the turfgrass plant has plenty of oxygen.

GPS and restricted zones

Warning signals and potential cart shut down can happen when you enter a restricted zone. Please stay 20 yards away from all Greens and Tee boxes unless you are on a cart path. Areas such as green surrrounds, tee boxes, rough terrain and parking lots have restricted zones and you will hear a warning signal when you enter them. Once you hear the warning buzzer or see the "restricted area" message please remove your cart from the area as soon as possible.
