RICHMOND, British Columbia (PGA of BC) — Just two weeks into his new role as Chilliwack Golf Club’s Superintendent, Kaleb Fisher never could have expected a challenge like the one his facility is facing after the extreme weather events that have hit southern British Columbia in recent days.
Many more facilities on Vancouver Island, the Lower Mainland, and in the Fraser Valley are also now in recovery mode after an “atmospheric river” event brought more than 200 millimetres of rainfall between Saturday and Monday, plus winds gusting up to 90 kilometres per hour, leading to floods, mudslides and countless transportation links closed between BC communities.
Chilliwack Golf Club is among many courses under water in the Fraser Valley and dealing with debris scattered by high winds.
