Try golfing a round at the nine-hole, grass green course in Carlyle - the Cornerstone of Saskatchewan.
The Carlyle Golf Course, which opened in 1965, features all the hallmarks of Saskatchewan golf.
The club opened up for the season over a month ago already, although the snow a few weeks ago put a halt to golfing.The golfers had to put away their clubs for a few days but it was welcomed moisture for the course.
The warm weather will certainly green things up as well.
The club has 225 people signed up as members and also one corporate membership to date, but is expecting more golfers to sign up for the season.
“The membership is definitely up from last year,” says Terri Field, manager of the Carlyle Golf Club.
Carlyle’s first golf tournament is planned for the Victoria Day long weekend.
It’s their Help Build the Deck and a farewell to Gord and Christy Jarvis golf tournament, which is put on by the board.
The Carlyle Golf Club holds their usual events including men’s night on Monday and ladies’ night on Tuesdays. Their senior men’s is held on Tuesday afternoons but as the weather improves it will be changed to 9 a.m.
Field says some of the features that would entice a golfer to their course are the wide tree-lined fairways, which are well maintained. There’s not a lot of elevation changes so it’s family friendly.
She goes on to say:
“It’s great for a beginner golfer. Some of the greens are quite challenging. The course is very well looked after.”
Golfers have commented that the course is in really good shape.
Carlyle Golf Club also has a fully licensed clubhouse.
The club offers power and pull carts as well as clubs for rent – a great idea for a beginner who wants to try the game of golf before investing a lot of money in the sport.
Some of the reasons why a golfer should try out the Carlyle course, according to Field:
“It’s a friendly course – you won’t get frustrated.”
“If you’re a beginner golfer, it’s a great course to start on.”
“Our rates are very reasonable.”
“We opened our gazebo on hole No. 5 in early April selling food and beverages,” explains Field.
“We’re improving all the time. We have three projects on the go right now.”
They’re making it even more appealing to the new and seasoned golfers.
“We’re in the process of getting a new tee off box for Hole No. 1. Our deck and ground patio area, which will help with the social distancing.”
And just to spark your interest…you’ll have to wait and see what some of the other new and exciting features will be.
“I have been so fortunate to have an absolute dream staff who are so friendly,” says Field.
That leaves golfers with a good first impression of the Carlyle Golf Club.
You will feel welcomed no matter what your skill level is as a golfer.
“We’re a really good bunch and we work together really well,” says Field. “I have full confidence in my staff.”
