Water on the local links have deterred golfers this spring. Some came out when 4 holes of 9 were available now 7 of 9 are available because of water and fairway damage.

About 700 feet of rock rip rap were placed on the Nicola River bank on the north side of the links as well as some turf replacement in a coincidence that BC Hydro had buried electric cable and services last winter .

The seniors tournament for this Friday has been rescheduled for September 15th, the 75 dollar entry fee ( includes a prime rib ) stays the same. Carts an additional 15 dollars.

A 600 membership fee for new members is still being offered. The people on the links today were enjoying the course even though some of the esthetics were less then perfect. All trees remain standing and in glorious bloom.

On this Day: June 13th 1898

The Yukon territory of Canada is formed with Dawson as its Capital.
