The ecological restoration of a second hole at Canal Shores Golf Club takes a step further with the approval of a $20,000 grant.

The Fairways Foundation, a New Jersey-based conservation society, announced that the Evanston Wilmette Golf Course Association will receive a $20,000 grant to restore canal banks at the straddling course’s ninth hole. the Evanston/Wilmette border.

The organization, founded in 2019, is in its third round of grants to organizations embarking on environmental initiatives.

“It was a good organization to get a grant in terms of what we’re trying to do and their image of what they’re trying to do,” said Matt Rooney, president of the Evanston Wilmette Golf Course Association.

The specific idea behind this project is to restore an acre of canal bank above the ninth hole leading to better stormwater management with the addition of a garden.

Representatives of the Fairways Foundation supported the idea.

“Supporting the project at Canal Shores was a no-brainer due to the number of volunteers from various community groups they were involved with. Community outreach and impact are as important to us as environmental stewardship,” Foundation Director Louise Amos said in a statement. “It is crucial that the work done to advance conservation on golf courses is shared with the general public. This, coupled with their strong plan to create native habitats, resulted in a unanimous decision from our grant committee.

This initiative is a similar project to the one done at hole 16 last year, according to Rooney.

This is the latest stage of a sustainability project started approximately five years ago and designed to restore the golf-free areas of all 82 acres of the property following the infestation of buckthorn and similar poisonous plants. .

“Unfortunately the place has been taken over by invasive species,” Rooney said.

With the grant from the Fairways Foundation, Rooney said the association is now seeking further funding for the full restoration of the ninth hole. He hopes this will be completed within the next few months, allowing the work to continue.

“Canal Shores is so much more than a golf course,” Rooney said. “It’s a multipurpose green space that the whole community can use.”

In 2022, the Fairways Foundation provided nearly $170,000 to organizations — mostly golf courses — in the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom for environmental work, according to its website.

Springbank Golf Club gets ‘preferred deal’ for topsoil owned by RVC https://pilotknobparkgolf.org/springbank-golf-club-gets-preferred-deal-for-topsoil-owned-by-rvc/ Sat, 19 Nov 2022 21:00:00 +0000 https://pilotknobparkgolf.org/springbank-golf-club-gets-preferred-deal-for-topsoil-owned-by-rvc/ “That’s a rarity,” Riemann said during the meeting. “We don’t generally sell topsoil from our pits, as it is used for our gravel pit reclamation as we continue to close our pits.” Rocky View County (RVC) will provide topsoil to the Springbank Golf Course in what some councilors are calling a “friendly deal,” after a […]]]>

“That’s a rarity,” Riemann said during the meeting. “We don’t generally sell topsoil from our pits, as it is used for our gravel pit reclamation as we continue to close our pits.”

Rocky View County (RVC) will provide topsoil to the Springbank Golf Course in what some councilors are calling a “friendly deal,” after a council motion passed at the council meeting. November 15.

The council voted to allow the Springbank Golf Course to acquire excess topsoil, which had been requisitioned by the county following an enforcement order over piled and untreated materials after construction by Edge School promoters. Using the developer’s security to pay for the process, the topsoil had been tested for baseline contaminants and transported to the county’s disused Kennel gravel pit near Springbank for storage and for possible use in site reclamation.

RVC Director of Operations Byron Riemann told advisers that topsoil is generally not something the county sells as part of its inventory.

“It’s a rarity,” he said at the meeting. “We don’t generally sell topsoil from our pits, as it is used for our gravel pit reclamation as we continue to close our pits.”

However, Riemann said the topsoil the Springbank Golf Course was requesting exceeded what the county needed in this case. According to Riemann, this would be a one-time transaction for the municipality, which has no plans to sell more topsoil of any kind in the future.

Earlier in the meeting, RVC staff had suggested a sale price of $7 per cubic meter for a total sale of $5,600. This price would correspond to the price of rejected sand, which the county sells.

However, a quick internet search of what private companies sell topsoil in the area averages about $35 per cubic yard ($27 per cubic meter) for sifted topsoil.

RVC staff pointed out that the topsoil requested by the golf course was not screened. Therefore, the golf course would be responsible for testing the soil before spreading it.

Div. 1 Conv. Kevin Hanson asked if hauling topsoil to the Springbank Golf Course was included in the suggested selling price of $7 per cubic yard.

“Have we factored that into the price?” He asked. “Or is it a love deal?”

Staff then responded that Springbank Golf Course would also pay for the collection and transport of the soil from its own pockets.

Div. 4 Com. Samantha Wright also expressed her doubts about the award.

“I’m sort of in the direction of Coun. Hanson,” she said. “I think it’s a bit of a heart thing. But if it’s not filtered…I’m not expert enough, and if that’s what you’re offering (for the price), and you say that you don’t need the floor, I could (support) the motion.”

Div. 7 Conv. Al Schule said he had full confidence in the staff to correctly calculate the price to charge Springbank Golf Course for topsoil.

“I want to thank the staff,” he said. “I think they did a good job of vetting to determine the price.”

He then proposed that RVC sell the topsoil to the Springbank Golf Course at a suggested price of $7 per cubic yard.

The motion passed by a unanimous vote of 6-0, with Div. 2 Com. Don Kochan absent for the vote.

For the second time this month, the Stirling Golf Club in Scotland has been the target of vandals.

Earlier in November, the club posted a video on its Twitter account of a series of divots on the 11th green which appeared to have been caused by either the force of a golf club or heel marks. In the tweet, the club also called on anyone who witnessed anything suspicious to contact Forth Valley Police.

WASHINGTON, Oct 26 (Reuters) – The Augusta National Golf Club, the U.S. Golf Association and the PGA of America are included in the U.S. Justice Department’s antitrust investigation into professional golf, according to a Wall Street Journal report released on Wednesday that quotes people familiar with the matter. .

A spokeswoman for the USGA, which is the national governing body for golf in the United States, confirmed to Reuters that the organization has been contacted by the Department of Justice and is fully complying with all requests.

The PGA Tour confirmed in July that it was part of the U.S. Justice Department’s investigation into whether it violated antitrust law by battling rival circuit LIV Golf funded by the Saudi Public Investment Fund.

But the Justice Department’s investigation is broader than previously known, the Journal reported. Augusta National, which hosts the Masters golf tournament each spring in Georgia, produced documents for the Justice Department investigation, these people said.

The Justice Department declined to comment while Augusta National and the PGA of America, which administers the PGA Championship, did not immediately respond to Reuters requests for comment.

Six-time major champion Phil Mickelson and 10 other golfers sued the PGA Tour in early August over its decision to suspend them for playing on LIV Golf’s lucrative and controversial new Saudi-backed circuit.

LIV Golf has joined a handful of its players in their antitrust lawsuit against the PGA Tour, according to an amended complaint that showed a number of golfers dropped out of the lawsuit.
