Golf course now open


Local golfers had an extra reason to look forward to the Easter long weekend, thanks to the opening day for the TS&M Woodlawn Golf Club on April 20.

Head pro and general manager Brian Dueck said they had all 18 holes ready for opening day, which was notable for a couple of reasons. It's the first time since 2010 that all 18 holes have been ready for opening day. And it's the earliest the course has been open since 2010.

“It seems like it's been a long time since that was a case,” said Dueck. “Everybody's itching to get out there.”

Power carts aren't restricted to the cart paths on the back nine, either, Dueck said. Last year golfers couldn't operate power carts on the back nine's rough or the fairways, because it was the first year that the back nine was open.

The course looks great, he said.

“I went out to take a look myself, and everybody who has come in through the doors has absolutely loved it,” said Dueck. “It's in great shape, and there's not a mark on any of the greens.”
The course didn't sustain any damage during the winter, he said.

Several renovation projects will happen at Woodlawn this year. Fresh concrete is being poured for the outdoor wheelchair access ramp at the clubhouse. Beautification work is taking place around the first tee box area. A drop-off area will be added near the clubhouse.

“We're throwing about a thousand square feet of sod out on the No. 7 fairway and rough from the 150 to 200 yard mark area to the green,” said Dueck.

And while they won't be hosting any provincial tournaments or special events, Dueck said it's going to be a busy year at the golf course, as they'll be hosting their usual assortment of tournaments for men, women, youth, oilfield workers and businesses, and there'll be some fundraising tournaments at the course, too.
