Starting April 19, 2022, the Redwoods Golf Course faced a temporary reduction in services while the Trans Mountain Expansion Project construction crossed through the golf course property. Pipeline construction is ongoing until mid-2023 with golf course renovations to follow. During this time both the golf course and the Redwoods Grill will be unavailable. The golf course is anticipated to open in the spring of 2024.
The Pipeline Route
The pipeline route goes from the southwestern tip of our property near the dogleg on hole 9 through to the northeastern corner of our property on the lower half of the course by the red tee deck on hole 5. The overall route will impact holes 5 and 9-15. While a few holes remain untouched, they cannot be accessed by anyone other than our turf maintenance team.
With construction being focused on the golf course, the closest that the pipeline construction will be to the clubhouse is over 220 metres away, or farther than two football fields. Since the Trans Mountain construction does not interfere with the clubhouse operations, we are pleased to continue offering private events such as weddings and banquets!
We are taking advantage of this temporary disruption to golf by advancing extensive course enhancements around our property. The most significant project we are tackling is completely upgrading six entire fairways with updated irrigation, new drainage, soil and fresh turf. The six lucky fairways are holes 5, 9, 10, 11, 13 and 15.
In addition to brand new fairways, we are fully renovating three tee decks which will greatly increase in size with their new design; this will give us more mobility when setting the tees each day and as a result, will help to maintain the tee decks in fantastic condition all year round. The tee decks receiving major upgrades will be on holes 3, 12 and 17. Our team will also be completing significant improvements to bunkers around the course during this hiatus where we will be removing the sand from all of our bunkers and cleaning it so that it is in perfect condition for reopening.
Last but not least, we executed substantial renovations to our Driving Range which reopened in May of 2023. Learn more about the Range renovations.
