University of British Columbia bags big golf book collection

Blogger Michael Lieberman had an interesting post today in the Seattle Post-Intelligencer about the University of British Columbia acquiring a 4,700+ collection of books on golf: Fore! Amazing Golf Collection Lands at the University of British Columbia

It's the greatest collection ever assembled on the sport. Only problem is, there are no loonies and toonies to process it. 
I left a comment on his blog that Vancouver is also home to the nearby British Columbia Golf Museum. It was established in 1987 and is located just behind the 17th tee at the University Golf Club.

The museum is housed in the oldest surviving clubhouse in Vancouver and is on the edge of the UBC Endowment Lands. There's f
ree parking, but call before you go. And the hours are sporadic -- the one time I stopped by, it was closed.
