• Update from the Golf Industry in Saskatchewan April 20, 2021

    With golf season upon us, we collectively wanted to take a moment and provide you with an update on behalf of the Golf Industry in Saskatchewan allied associations (Canadian Society of Club Managers – Saskatchewan Branch, National Golf Course Owners Association Canada Prairie Chapter, PGA of Canada - Saskatchewan Zone and Saskatchewan Turfgrass Association).

    As we are all aware, the latest version of the Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan clearly outlines the approved operating guidelines for golf at this time.

    The Province of Saskatchewan confirmed today that doubling up in shotgun starts can occur as long as groups do not mingle and are separated by at least 3 meters (on the tee box and the other group in the transition area).

    Although clarifications may be required from time to time, please know that the Golf Industry in Saskatchewan allied associations continue to maintain regular dialogue and engagement with the Province of Saskatchewan and the Business Response Team as we have done so since March of 2020.

    This approach has allowed us to collectively speak as one voice, which has ultimately led to significant improvements in the operational guidelines for 2020 and to date in early 2021. Although not all of the guidelines are ideally suited for every golf operation, it is important to recognize that during a global pandemic, golf in Saskatchewan remains open with what we consider to be reasonable operating guidelines at this time.

    Now more than ever, it is important that the golf industry ensures compliance with all public health measures to maintain and protect the safety of all or our golfers, staff team members as well as our communities across Saskatchewan.

    The Golf in Saskatchewan allied associations remain committed to working in partnership with the Province of Saskatchewan, Public Health and the Business Response Team as we move forward through the on-going phases of the Re-Open Saskatchewan Plan.

    Yours in golf,

    Doug Campbell / Kim Larsen
    Saskatchewan Turfgrass Association
