On a stormy night in October 1904 flames arose abruptly on the west side of the Ardmore Manor House of Lord William Le Poer Trench, the site of the first Ardmore Golf Course. In hellish flames the most magnificent Edwardian home of Vancouver Island and Ardmore was 'gone with the wind'. Ardmore: Home, Community and Golf is a book about the Ardmore region on the Saanich Peninsula - a region with a history of arson, scandal, racism, farming, the Du Temple family and the early days of golfing on Vancouver Island.
