Youth Programs

The Golf Club, Squash Club and Curling Club all offer youth programs ranging from weekly drop in sessions, introductory lessons to weekly activities. The Golf Club supports the “Take A Kid To The Course Week” each year in July.

Environment

The course uses its own non potable water that does not effect the District of Squamish’s water supply. The course’s water supply is a rechargeable aquifer that feeds into its pond.

The staff are accredited by the Federal Government on the use of only approved fertilizers and pesticides and continue to developed environmentally sensitive areas that require no service.

Both the Federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans and the Resource Restoration Component of the DFO’s Salmon Enhancement Program work closely with Squamish Valley. Their position is that the spawning channel is fed by groundwater from the Mamquam River and have noted that the lower end of the channel may be above the water table, often effected by dry periods.
