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.
We are all excited that the Province of BC has entered Stage 3 of its restart plan! Even though restrictions have been relaxed, Golf Burnaby is still taking measures to ensure the safety of our guests and staff. Maintaining physical distancing has been fairly easy to do on our courses, but for everyone’s safety we are still trying to minimize congestion around and within our Pro Shops and permitting only 2 guests at a time in our shops for the time being. We are still recommending masks for our indoor spaces and for those who are not fully vaccinated. Other safety protocols include regular sanitization of common areas, offering roll-down dividers in power carts, and following directional signage to maintain social distancing. We all have different comfort levels so remember to wash your hands and respect everyone’s personal space.
Did you know? We have fog misters installed at every stall of Driving Ranges at both Burnaby Mountain and Riverway Golf Courses. It's COOL to practice in Burnaby.
Beat the heat and stay cool in Burnaby! Swing by today and hit a bucket of balls!
Happy New Year! While we have gone live with our upgraded Tee Time booking engine, we appreciate your patience during this transition. Please note, that while the payment of green fees will still be collected at the Pro Shops, your reservation will need to be secured with a credit card in the Tee-it-Up booking engine to prevent no-shows (less than 4 hours notice). For more information, please visit our Tee time booking page.
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.
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.

It’s the time of the year again, if you haven’t already, to AERATE your lawn. The play on spelling in the title says it all. Your lawn needs AIR, which includes oxygen and carbon dioxide (O2,CO2), to survive.
Just like, almost, every living thing, turfgrass needs to breathe, it just does it slightly differently. It can “take in” and “let out” O2 and CO2 through its leaves and roots. Above the soil surface there is nothing to get in the way of leaves “breathing” but in the soil there must be lots of pores (small spaces) between soil particles for the roots to “breath”. The problem is that we, as users of the lawn, walk all over it, push lawn mowers all over it, and in the case of golf courses, drive golf carts all over it. All that weight over time makes those pores (small spaces) even smaller, this is referred to as compaction.
Over 175,000 hectares of green space are managed by approximately 2,308 golf course operators,. This includes mamnaged green spaces estimateed at more than 145,000 hectares and nearly 30,000 hectares of unmanagted wildlife under golf course stewardship.
