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.
