    When the last shots were struck at Redwoods on April 18 of this year, the hope was the popular course would be back up and and running this fall. But managing director Doug Hawley’s worst fears are now being realized....

  • Video: The Unreachable Golf Course: The Story of Bald Eagle GC's Forced Quarantine During Covid-19

    In a very well done short documentary aired by Skratch, Erik Anders Lang travels to Bald Eagle GC in Point Roberts, WA, a formally 'unreachable' course to find out what happened to so completely isolate the facility in this episode of Adventures in Golf, presented by United Airlines.

    Golf boomed during the pandemic...everywhere except here. Two years later, it's finally making its comeback. Bald Eagle GC has a unique story of being virtually abandoned during the pandemic, which was far from unique in the U.S. and Canada at the time, but is slowly making a comeback thanks to the local volunteers who are helping as they play.

  • Langley's Redwoods GC Enters Pipeline Hibernation

    By Brad Ziemer, British Columbia Golf

    Doug Hawley and his staff couldn’t help but get a little emotional as the final shots were struck Easter Monday at Redwoods Golf Course. 

    The Langley course is being forced to close for a few months due to construction of the TransCanada pipeline. Hawley, Redwoods’ managing director, knows the course he has run for the past 28 years will emerge better than ever.

    But he acknowledges it’s going to be tough to watch some of the fairways get ripped up for the pipeline project.
