The Club is looking to replace the only Golf Course Superintendent in our 31-year history, who will be retiring this year. The course was designed to be an enjoyable, yet challenging test of golf, and has a reputation for its excellent playing conditions.
The Club initiated a Master Improvement Plan in 2019 that included renovations to the first floor of the clubhouse, the pool area and the addition of a state of the art fitness building. The upper two floors of the clubhouse are being renovated this winter. The next phases of our Master Plan will include levelling the practice tees, installing mats and building/expanding a short game area in 2024.
