Lloydminster G.C.C. sees city investments; poised to host marquee junior events

The Lloydminster Golf and Curling Centre is in the midst of another busy season, but that hasn’t stopped both the city and Head Professional Marty Wheaton from continuing to build the game and benefit the course.

This year saw the club upgrade several fairways and tee boxes plus an irrigation upgrade has made the 7,000 yard course from the tips one of Saskatchewan’s top facilities again this year.

Combined with Wheaton’s extremely successful junior program, ladies nights with over 100 players on a weekly basis and weekly men’s nights the club is very busy.

The course recently hosted the First Nations Cup that drew over 600 players, that will ease Wheaton into hosting the 2024 Western Canada Summer Games as well as the 2025 Saskatchewan Junior Championships.

Wheaton and City of Lloydminster Senior Manager of Parks and Green Spaces Jordan Newton joined Golf Saskatchewan to discuss the recent upgrades, the value the club provides to the area, the next couple years, and more.
