We received a lot of action on Twitter today regarding the City of Ottawa ban on outdoor watering for residents of Barrhaven, Riverside South, and Manotick.
There are two golf courses, Cedarhill Golf & Country Club and Stonebridge Golf & Country Club, in the area outlined by the City in their Powerpoint presentation regarding the Woodroffe Watermain Repairs seen here.
Flagstick’s Joe McLean made contact with each club earlier today and we have been assured by each that the ban will have no consequences for them. Each has an independent water supply separate from the City and will therefore be able to maintain their golf course watering practices.
Some activities, such as cart washing, will now require the clubs to draw water from their ponds to complete the task, says Stonebridge G&CC Director of Golf Joe Warner, but a plentiful supply of water provided by Mother Nature’s recent gifts should help for quite some time.
