This foursome had to wait for a black bear to clear the fairways before hitting their tee shot. On the Nickalaus course in Whistler, BC, black bears are often seen on the course. If your ball hits a bear, wait for the bear to clear then hit your ball where it lies without incurring a penalty stroke.
oil pipeline going thru
The golf course in North Langley might get its fairways torn up because they are putting an oil pipeline underneath the fairways. The Walnut Grove's Redwoods Golf Course will be affected when trees and earth are moved to make way for an oil pipeline to be installed.
