Golf course moved forward in 2013

The TS&M Woodlawn Golf Club had another good year in 2013, according to head pro/GM Brian Dueck.

The golf course made a profit last year, thanks to an insurance payout from the flood of 2014, and donations from sponsors through naming rights and hole sponsorships.

But other revenue sources, such as memberships, were under budget.

“We're going to have to increase our membership,” said Dueck.

Revenues were more than $2.194 million last year. Golf course operations, including memberships, tournaments and green fees, were the greatest source of revenue at more than $708,000, but they were still about $66,000 under budget.

Flood insurance revenues exceeded $492,000, but Woodlawn doesn't expect more flood money this year.

Expenses came in at $2.12 million.

The overall surplus was $68,623.25.

The new back nine opened in late May of 2013 – about three weeks after the front 9 was open.

“The condition of the golf course got a lot better by the middle of July, and as the season went on, you could see how the golf course was really coming,” said Dueck.

This year will be the first year in which Woodlawn will operate as an 18-hole course for the entire season since 2010.

The golf club is also trying to attract more youth members. There was a golf night at Spruce Ridge School in Estevan on March 5, and Dueck said it's a good way to get students and parents excited about the game.

The golf course also plans to spend money on beautification work around the clubhouse this year.

The golf club's executive for 2014 was also elected. Garth Hoffort will be the president, Jared Schlamp the vice-president, Ward Tuttle the treasurer, Meghan Betnar the secretary and Jim Wilson the past-president.

Daryl Davidson is the junior representative; Cory Prokop is the men's representative; Ashley Gallaway is the women's representative; Dustin Wilson will represent the golf shop, Brian Morrissey the food and beverage division; Chris Davidson the greens and maintenance department; and Jeff Ward will be a member-at-large.
