On Saturday April 21, Dinosaur Trail Golf & Country Club held their annual auction and raised over $50,000.
The golf club's Annual General Meeting in March discussed issues with drainage and clearing the old club house off of the property. The auction proceeds will help take care of some of these costs.
"We want to clean up the area that had the old club house on it. One of the plans is to rebuild our putting greens and parking for power carts out front of the club house," said course pro, Phil McClusky. "It's just kind of a big muddy mess at the moment."
McClusky further noted that the project to repair the grounds could take all year as infrastructure is a 'steady diet' of what they do at Dinosaur Trail Golf & Country Club.
"The golf course always looks great," said McClusky. "What's underneath it sometimes is the challenge. Typically, that's what we do with the money that we raise for things, like the auction."
The golf course is gearing up to open for the season as they continue to monitor the greens while snow continues to melt.
"People appreciate how important this course is to the town and how much the golf course appreciates being in the town," McClusky concluded. "It's an important part of our community and support like that gives us a real boost."
