2019 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.

Golf and its relationship with Charitable Activity

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.
