A promising continuation of the golfing season

Approximately a month into the opening of its golf season, Sioux Lookout Golf and Curling Club (SLGCC) Manager Sheila Suprovich said, “It’s been going well, we’ve been busy. We are pretty much booked up every day.”
SLGCC runs a ladies’ twilight event every Thursday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. and a men’s twilight event every Wednesday between 12 noon and 6 p.m. Events people may wish to mark on their calendars include Iron Man on July 10, the annual Blueberry Open with ladies’ mixed, juniors’, and men’s tournaments that will run throughout the Blueberry Festival, a club championship anticipated to run at the end of August, and a Shoot Out tournament in early September.
Suprovich shared that the club wasn’t ready at the time the province allowed for patios to reopen as work was being conducted to refinish the club’s deck. SLGCC opened its patio for the season last Friday. She added that due to the rigorous need for sanitization, club rentals are currently unavailable.
SLGCC is working on getting an online booking system set up by July, with further details to follow. Suprovich said that all bookings currently take place manually over the phone and that moving to an online system would allow easier access to book slots for tee times.
Suprovich said that she aims to continue to offer “some events that people can go to, and keeping the place busy, and golfers active.”
