CTV Saskatoon took some time earlier this month to profile youth golf and the Wildwood Golf Course.
During the Aug. 1 episode of 9 Holes of Summer with CTV personality Mike Ciona, Tim and Brody Sawchyn played a hole while promoting junior golfing. Tim is the head pro at the course, he told Ciona that Wildwood has a big focus on youth golfing.
“We do group lessons in May and June, there is usually three to four programs a month. The junior golf rates at the Saskatoon city courses is really cheap. If a family wants to get their kids involved in golf the city courses are a great place to get involved,” Sawchyn said.
As the golf season expires into the later stages Wildwood has come up with a new deal to get golfers on the course. Tim
“A new program for us is twilight starts at 3 p.m. everyday. You pay for nine, you can play up to 18. For people working and can’t get to the course during the day it works. The rounds are quicker, and the price is right,” he said.
The trio played the 220-yard 12th hole during the feature. Ciona grinded out a bogey, Tim parred the hole and Brody led the way with a birdie. He told Ciona how he played the hole.
“I put a good drive out there, a good wedge shot led to an even better putt,” Brody said.
