The forceful torrent of mud, rock, and debris that came roaring down the Fairmont Creek on July 15th didn’t only bring muck into many areas of the town it brought new opportunity for Mountainside Golf Course. Last week, renowned golf course architect, Doug Carrick was on site to examine how to make the best use of mother’s natures materials to improve and redesign the affected holes.
We are literally bubbling with excitement as we look forward to our re-opening date of Friday, August 3rd. The Fairmont Hot Springs Resort natural mineral pools, lodge, RV Park and all associated outlets will re-open next Friday - in time for the sunny long weekend.
Work continues dawn to dusk at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort. Teams have been working hard as they dig for the source of the natural hot springs and re-establish water connections back to the lodge.
Everyone at Fairmont Hot Springs Resort and in the town of Fairmont Hot Springs is safe and well after a debris flow in the late afternoon, July 15th, 2012. The torrent of water from high in the mountains carried large rocks and trees with it and destroyed much in its path. The debris flow cut access to the RV Park, badly damaged the pedestrian bridge to the RV Park, buried the source of the hot springs, deposited rock, mud and timber on parts of the Mountainside Golf Course and left a mess on the canyon floor.
The Fairmont Hot Springs Resort natural mineral pools, lodge, RV Park, and all associated outlets all reopened on Friday, August the 3rd.
The waters are high, but the grass is dry at Riverside Golf Course.

What a great opportunity to cruise around on the golf cart and snap some photos of everyone enjoying their day. Here are some photos of Riverside Golf Course:
