Mudslide-damaged golf course reopens
A mudslide that closed the Fairview Mountain Golf Course in Oliver, B.C. for two weeks has reopened for play. Damage was limited, including a small section of one green that will be replaced in the fall.
General manager Brian McDonald said getting the course reopened was a "massive, round-the-clock effort for the past 13 days."
Quick support was provided by Mike Johnson Excavating and Peter Bros. as well as about 50 club members who volunteered their time each day.
More than 3,000 tons, or 400 dump truck loads, of mud, rocks and debris were removed from the course.
McDonald said there shouldn't be any lasting damage other than the small section of green that will be addressed in the fall.
