River Road – 2017 Seasonal Closing Date
End of Day - Sunday November 12
Thank you to everyone who enjoyed our River Road Golf Course again this year. The City of London Golf Course system has enjoyed another successful year in 2017 despite some early season weather issues and some irrigation problems at all of our properties. Mother nature and some innovative maintenance allowed our courses to look and play as good as they ever have.
As some of you may be aware, there was a chemical spill from a neighbouring property at River Road that caused the contamination of our irrigation pond. Quick action by our staff caught the spill at its early stages and no contaminated water was used on the course itself. The Ministry of the Environment and the City of London Spills team contained the contamination safely and effectively with no issues for golfers or staff. You possibly noticed that we used manual methods of watering for most of the season. Despite this issue, the condition of the course was terrific, as staff was able to fight through the issue and maintain a course that continued to provide golfers with an amazing golf experience. We continue to work with the Ministry and our internal spills team to remedy the situation for the 2018 golf season.
We look forward to another great golf season in 2018 with River Road, Fanshawe and Thames continuing to provide the best municipal golf experience in the country.
As the season comes to a close we will be reducing the fall offerings as weather, play, conditioning and staffing levels are reduced to ensure the efficient operation of the golf system as a whole.
Thanks again for another great golf season and let’s hope we get to keep playing golf for a few more weeks.
