Seymour Golf Course Conditions

Friday, January 15th (6:30 AM Update)

The course will be open at 9:00 AM to members only. Debris on some fairways/tees and some small branches in roughs remain from Wednesday’s wind storm.

Rain: Overnight, 0.7 inches (18 mm).  The course has already received 11.67 inches (296 mm) of rain since January 1st!!

What to expect during winter golf:

  • Regular greens will not be played until the surface and ground frost have completely thawed.
  • Regular greens will not be played while puddled.  And will not be re-opened until surface water has had ample time to percolate through the soil profile.
  • Certain greens that get little to no sun may be closed outright.  A few others may be closed on a rotational basis.
  • Various maintenance programs must be performed in dry weather, for example, fungicide applications with strict re-entry protocols are essential to turf health, this is especially true over the winter months.  Regular greens will not be played while these practices are performed.

Care for the Course:

  • With the onset of winter weather complying with traffic control measures becomes all the more important.  Cold temperatures, rain, and decreased sunlight coupled with a busy fall of golf make growing grass in these areas extremely difficult.
  • Repairing ball marks and replacing divots are always important but are now essential with high volumes of play and reduced Course Care staff.

Greens: 14-15 regular greens and 3-4 temporary greens.

Tees: Mainly forward grass.

Driving Range: Open at 8:45 AM (mats), closes at 4:00 PM.

Putting/Chipping Green: Closed

SGPA Area: Closed

Power Cart Access: Paths Only (Strictly enforced; do not leave the cart paths as roughs/fairways are extremely wet).

Pro Shop: Can be reached at [604-929-2611]

Disabled Golfers: Protection of the course from damage is a paramount concern / extended access is available when conditions allow it. Disabled golfers with a request for extended course access should contact the Course Superintendent (604-929-5833) at least one day prior to play, to review the request within the current agronomic conditions.

Fertilizer and Fungicide Policy

Pesticides (primarily fungicides) are used on the course and practice areas to maintain the health of the grounds. Staff members comply with legislation and manufacturer’s recommendations concerning the use of these products, and all efforts are made to protect golfers from exposure. Notices are posted prior to each application so golfers may choose to play or not to play that day.

Golfers should always take precautions to reduce any chance of absorbing pesticides:

  • Direct and/or indirect contact between your mouth and anything in contact with the playing surface should always be avoided.
  • Skin and eye contact can also result in absorption.
