Little Loon Regional Park provides golf getaway

Number four is Little Loon Regional Park's signature hole.

Established in the 1960’s Little Loon Regional Park provides all the amenities for a Saskatchewan summer getaway.

Located approximately 10 kilometres east of Glaslyn, the park sees plenty of traffic from nearby communities including Medstead, Cochin, Jackfish, and Glaslyn itself. Park manager Heather Schneider said the site has all bases covered for a family looking to get away.

“We have camping, we have a concession, boating, swimming, a playground, an 18-hole mini golf course, and a beautiful, nine-hole grass green golf course,” Schneider explained.

Schneider said hole four is their most picturesque on the track. She said the natural landscape and some tricky parts of the course make it stand out.

“We have natural rolling hills and a few water hazards spread out on the course. We also have a few I’m going to get you in the end bunkers,” Schneider laughed.

The park has 35 electrical sites to go with 28 non-electrical spots. They also have 58 seasonal campsites. She said the golf course caters to visitors and is busy through the summer months.

“We work well with all the golf courses around the area, everybody is really good at playing our course and helping others out. We’re nine holes and Spiritwood is nearby with 18 holes so people travel around and can make a day or weekend out of playing. We also pull a lot of people from the surrounding areas, our lease holders and our daily campers,” she added.

The course hosts a list of tournaments starting on June 24 with their Senior Open. The club will have a Four Person Scramble on July 13, their Men’s and Ladies’ Open takes place on July 27, a Five-Person Scramble is slated for Aug. 10. The Ladies’ Open will be played on Aug. 17, the Club Championship is on Aug. 25. The Senior Cash Scramble will close their schedule on Sept. 7.

Schneider said their superintendent, Darren Ironbow keeps the course in great shape on an annual basis.
