With the recent snowfall, there are still some who are enjoying their winter sports. However, many are dusting off their golf clubs with anticipation of a great golf season ahead.

Club President, Larry Rainnie, says there are a few changes to the club going into Spring, starting with the return of Course Superintendent, Rick Penner who will be starting at the first of April.

“Rick was here in the late 90's and having him return will be a big plus," says Rainnie. "He's been out walking the course and checking out the equipment and the maintenance facility and we're looking at some changes."

Rainnie says they're hoping to have the clubhouse open by the first of May, but of course, that is dependent on the weather.

Plans are in place to fix up the deck at the clubhouse prior to opening day and to replace the deck furniture, with thanks to the Boundary Co-op. Volunteers have been helping out to clean up different areas as well.

As a reminder to members, membership dues are to be paid by the first of May. For those wanting to pay before the clubhouse is open they can go to BDO in Boissevain.

As last year, the policy will remain to not accept credit cards for payment. "That small percentage that we get charged to use credit cards, is significant for us. Last year it went pretty well" he adds.
