As it seems the winter weather has passed, Yorkton residents can once again enjoy the outdoors, including golf.
Last week, Deer Park opened up its course to the public, with many residents ready to grab their clubs and hitting the course.
Allan Sauser, the director of golf at the Deer Park Golf Course, said that this year would be similar to last but with a few changes to some of the COVID-19 restrictions.
“The real change that we’ve had is that you have to wear a mask in the clubhouse,” he said. “Other than that, all of the restrictions are the same; you just have to stay apart, we got the lifters on the flags, we have to sanitize all the carts like we did last year, so pretty much the same restrictions.”
When it comes to golfing with multiple people, golfers will be able to have two in a cart, as long as they are in your pod or in your family.
Sauser said that they lifted a restriction that he is excited about.
“They have lifted the key one that was hard to run tournaments last year is that they are allowing us to have shotgun starts, that’s key for people that want to have fundraisers for events that is making it a lot easier.”
Sauser added that the greens are looking fantastic and is optimistic they can have another successful year as they celebrate 100 years.
