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.

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!
