For anyone who loves to golf and is in BC (living or visiting), you just have to check out the UBC Golf Course in Vancouver, British Columbia.
I will be posting a review on the course soon, but first I need to share with you a very important cause.
“Save the Course” is an informal grass roots organization formed in response to the BC Provincial Government’s intention to give the UBC Golf course to the Musqueam First Nation as part of a land claim settlement.
The Provincial Government’s plan was negotiated in secret with no community consultation on the part of either the members of the Musqueam First Nation, the residents of the GVRD, or the users of the UBC Golf course.
“Save the Course” believes that there are far better ways to satisfy the Musqueam claim than to lose this precious community asset. I agree!
If want to learn more about this and sign their online petition, please visit Save the Course and click to support the cause.
Also, some very generous people have been funding this cause out of their own pockets. So the next time you win with your buddies on the greens, why not donate your winnings to this very important cause!
