LANGLEY, British Columbia — The Redwoods Golf Course has something full of holiday spirit to brighten up the long, dark winter days ahead: the Redwoods Tree of Hope. Standing tall beside the Redwoods Golf Course Clubhouse, this blue and white beauty cannot be missed.
Managing Director Doug Hawley built the custom tree in honour of Larry Hope, the founder of Redwoods Golf Course, who passed away earlier this year. “Larry was always very active in the community and I think that he would be proud of it. I wanted to build something in honour of Larry that the whole community could enjoy” said Hawley.
Hawley teamed up with Rick Spink from DC Welding back in early October to begin designing and building the unique frame that is the backbone of this custom Christmas tree. Spink recalls “when Doug first approached me with the initial concept of this tree I thought he was crazy! But as we began developing the design and it started coming to life I became more and more excited to be a part of this project.” Since October it has taken well over 150 hours to design and build. The tree stands 21 feet high and is lit with 9,730 lights.
The Redwoods Tree of Hope will be brightly lit every evening until the New Year and everyone is encouraged to come and enjoy the sight. 22011-88th Ave Langley.
