Gilwood season tees off

Restrictions on golf were lifted last week, just in time for the front nine at Slave Lake’s Gilwood Golf Club to open on May 12. It was cool but sunny and by the look of things the opening was a welcome development for lovers of the game and maybe for other people with a lot of time on their hands, a love of physical activity and not a lot of other opportunities.

Social-distancing and other risk-reduction rules are in effect for golfing, says general manager Tony Griffi.

Griffi says Men’s Night, Ladies’ Night and competitive leagues all begin the first week of June.

They’d probably rather be playing baseball, but golf isn’t a bad alternative at all for this trio. Left to right are Matthew LaFrance, William Chemago and Aiden Blocka on #2 at Gilwood on opening day.
