Stage 3

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.

"AIR"ation: Why aeration is important to a healthy lawn

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.

Golf and its relationship with Charitable Activity

Charitable Activity: In 2013 alone there were nearly 37,000 charitable events hosted at Canadian courses (25,000 in 2008). Using conservative extimates, these events raise more than $533 million ($473 million in 2008) for charitable cuases across Canada.

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.
