Golf course records banner year

The Dinosaur Trail Golf Course executive reported a profitable year to shareholders at the Annual General Meeting April 15.   

 With 50 members in attendance, Jim Broom reported on progress made on the new maintenance building completed last fall, plus provided an update on the yet-to-be-built tournament facility.  This new building will be located on site of the old maintenance and shop area, and will have a patio area and windows looking down the first fairway.

The golf course had a successful year financially, hosting some 25,000 rounds, plus 37 golf tournaments.

The golf course has formed a golf association and will be “working casinos” in the future to avail casino money.  This added money will greatly assist operations at the course. 

Pro/manager Scott Westman is heading into his second year at the course, and thanked the members for the welcome he and wife Suyette received last year.

He highlighted some of the changes at the course planned for 2010, saying he wanted to “enhance the member experience” at the course.

There will be changes to the Men’s Night and the Friday night golf and food evening will be returning. 

Another goal is to increase the number of players in both the Men’s Open Tournament and the Club Championship.

Mr. Westman reminded the crowd that the Annual Dinner and Auction was upcoming on April 24 and was hopeful of a good turnout. 

An election of three directors took place at the conclusion of the meeting, and Myles Travis, Paul Ainscough and Darrell Bertram will be joining Jim Broom, Trevor Gough, Dave Prodaniuk, Tom Zariski, JoAnne Contenti and Dave Vickers on the executive for the coming year. Executive terms are for three years on a rotational basis, with three directors positions voted on each year. Long-time director Bruce Wade did not run again for another term.
