Probably not what you’d expect to see at the entrance to a new golf course! Last Sunday, April 22, Puslinch Fire Department did a controlled burn of the old (Paul) Valeriote house, on the property of what is now Victoria Park Valley Golf Club. This was, of course, all pre-arranged. Local residents were notified of the early-morning firefighter practice session and eventual burn, but the significant smoke cloud drew a crowd of curious onlookers from miles around.
The area has since been cleared by heavy equipment, and Valley owner Ted DeCorso plans to build a house on (roughly) the same spot.
From left to right: Dan Berdusco, Ted DeCorso, David DeCorso, and Jason Sewell paused for a quick photo op, just as the Puslinch Firefighters began to douse the burn. David is Victoria Park Valley’s General Manager, and Jason is the Superintendent.
Victoria Park Valley Golf Club will open on Saturday April 28… come hell, high water or fire!
