Golf courses are anticipating another great golf season! – DiscoverWestman.com

The Westman golf courses have experienced a mix of rain and snow and (sleet and hail in some areas) over the past month and many golf enthusiasts have started enjoying the outdoors at their favorite courses despite unusual weather conditions.

Pleasant Valley Golf Course is owned and operated by Cheryl and Chad Berry and their family. Manager, Cheryl Berry, says their course is in excellent condition and ready for summer, and despite heavy rain, the weather hasn’t dampened the enthusiasm at all!

“Our superintendent and the greenskeepers are doing a great job and the golfers are there! We are doing very well. Last year was very dry and the moisture is very welcoming, and it seeps into the ground at a perfect pace. If it rained a little less, we could have had a few more golfers, but you can never say no to rain!

Berry says the extreme weather conditions of a hot and dry summer in 2021 compared to a very wet and cool spring this year has not negatively affected their course. With good snow cover, the fairways were well protected from the cold winter temperatures. “The course is in good shape and improving day by day,” she added.

Last weekend’s sunshine that continued into the week is a welcome sight, to help warm the ground and dry out the low spots. “Our superintendent said the other day that they were waiting to cut the greens because they were waiting for the hot sun. But everything is mowed and the golfers are out.”

“I believe this summer will be pretty much the same as the last 2 years,” Berry shares. “As Manitobans, we’ve been very lucky. To bring Covid into the equation, it has prompted people to travel more within their own province and has led to more golfers seeking out all the courses in Manitoba, and of course we benefit from that. , I think we’re really lucky and I’m sure every other golf course in Manitoba is as lucky as we are and I’m looking forward to another great summer!”
