Plans were already in the works to replace the clubhouse at the Lumby Golf Course.
Mother Nature simply helped those plans along over the weekend. The clubhouse’s roof, which was already sagging, caved in over the weekend due to heavy, melting snow.
“It was sagging quite bad so it was just a question of time,” said Lumby Golf Course groundskeeper and president Vern Abney.
The course has a set of plans in place to replace the facility. They have received a grant from the Monashee Community Forests to help with the rebuild, have applications in to service clubs for grants and have raised about $7,500 towards the project.
“Soon as the snow melts, we’ll start on it,”said Abney, adding that golf will not be delayed or postponed because of renovations.
“The gate is open 24-7,” he said. “It’s open for snowboarders, trail walkers, dog walkers.”
