With golf back in play in Alberta, a grounds maintenance staff member at Calgary’s Country Hills Golf Club said he was happy to be working again and would have done it for free just to get back on the course. “Groundskeepers and staff are happy to be doing something, and not hanging at home on the couch,” Colin Lavender, tournament director of the ATB Financial Classic, said.
