Views from flood-damaged Kananaskis Country Golf Course in Kananaskis Country, Alberta.
A section of the Bill Milne Bike Path passes by the Kananaskis Country Golf Course. This world class facility, hosting two 18 hole golf courses, was decimated by flood water in June 2013 and has been closed for business since then. This golfing facility is a major attraction for Alberta Tourism and specifically important as an ancillary attraction to the nearby Delta Lodge at Kananaskis and Boundary Ranch. On the hike of the Bill Milne Trail a few photos of flood damage on the golf course are taken.
Flood water has damaged major portions of the golf course. The fairways, greens and bunkers appear to be deteriorating. There are places where rock and timber debris have seriously damaged the formerly pristine and popular golf course.
Hopefully a solution can be found soon which will repair the course, perhaps in stages, in some meaningful time frame, so it can resume its existence as an important, world class golf, tourist and corporate destination in Kananaskis Country, Alberta, Canada. These few photographs of the Kananaskis Country Golf Course are taken on May 27, 2014.
A subsequent visit to the golf course on June 23, 2014 shows 2013 flood damage from the elevated view of the clubhouse. Following are a few photos taken during spring runoff. The course is seriously damaged. The road into the clubhouse is open after repair work beneath the power lines.
This short video scan shows water running through the course near the clubhouse and pro shop. Crews are busy repairing massive flood damage to creeks throughout Kananaskis Country.
