Golf season tees off

The Skeena Valley Golf Course is open and hoping for a sunny summer.

With hopes of a drier summer, the Skeena Valley Golf Course opened its doors at the start of April.

And head professional Germain Francoeur said the course is already hitting it off to a good season.

“The course is in good shape,” he said.

Francoeur explained that conditions are already better than those of last year as the ground is drier.

As a  weather dependent sport, last year’s summer in Terrace was a challenge on the greens.

Although, Francoeur said even with the dreary weather  the course put through 15,000 rounds of golf.

“So considering the weather, we were fairly busy,” he said of last season.

This year the focus is on growing the juniors program and keeping the game of golf affordable.

He has created a new membership category for golfers between the age of 25 – 29.

There will be four tournaments this season.

The Men’s Open will take place June 30th, and the Ladies Open will happen the weekend after, July 2.

A seniors tournament will take place August 11, and the Mr. And Mrs.’ tournament will take place August 25.
