You would be reaching to find anything positive in the devastating flood that hit Southern Alberta last June, but if there was a heart-warming aspect to this disaster, it’s the way the community pulled together in the days that followed.
That certainly held true within the golf industry, where GNN blogger Tiffany Gordon got a close-up view of the devastation at Cottonwood Golf and Country Club, which is still putting the pieces together seven months after the flood hit.
In the days following the flood, Tiff wrote here about the support that Cottonwood received from other nearby golf operations that opened their doors and their hearts in helping their neighbour react to the overwhelming devastation that took place.
The golf community in Alberta deserves commendation for the way it pulled together to help one another out in the days following the flood.
When you think about it, they could have just as easily turned their backs on their neighbours and conceivably enjoyed increased business as the golf course in need struggled to open its doors once again. They chose not to, admirably banding together as a community.
That makes the golf industry in that part of Canada a special place to be. Is it like that in the rest of Canada?
That’s the topic of this week’s GNN Poll.
