July 2019

As we get into the summer months, we finally have received moisture over most of the province, with some getting too much too fast.  The Swift Current area received 3-4” of rain in just over an hour on June 18, and flooding occurred.  Chinook golf course was closed for 2 weeks.  In the Saskatoon area we had 3 1/2 “ of rain over 3 days with reports of 5” of rain in other areas.

We are just finalizing details for the Don Campbell Research Tournament on Thursday, August 22.  I’ve heard Brian Oates at Deer Valley has the golf course in outstanding condition and it should be a great day.

On August 21 there is a skins game at Green Acres in Balgonie at 2:00.  Please pre-register early so we can plan the meals.  All it takes is a text, call or email.

It will be great to see everyone that can make it on the 22nd, and I wish you all a great summer.
