AWARDS & RECOGNITION AT SEYMOUR
Although we prefer actions to words here at Seymour, there have been a few things that have brought us to the attention of our community:
In 1992 Seymour Golf and Country Club was the first golf course in Canada to successfully register with the Audubon Society. The club values being a continuing Audobon member, and welcomes the advice provided by Audubon regarding habitat creation and maintenance. The results of our commitment speak for themselves when you're out on our course, surrounded by birds, coyotes, deer, bears, often on the same day.
In 1996 Seymour was the first private golf club in the Lower Mainland to remove all references to gender in its membership categories. Keeping with contemporary norms, men and women can join any of the golf categories here at Seymour, vote equally, and dine in the same restaurants, lounges and bars. The only things we still segregate are the locker rooms!
In 2009 Seymour opened up its doors to the RCGA and the CN Women's Tour, and hosted 144 Professional and Top Amateur woman golfers over two days of competition. This event helped showcase Seymour to the golfing world, and brought us accolades from organizers and players from around the world.
