Kildonan Park Golf Course preparing for 100th anniversary this summer

April 27, 2021

The 10th hole at Kildonan Park Golf Course

After celebrating a record season in 2020, our three municipal golf courses are gearing up for another busy season.

Since opening for the season earlier than usual on April 1, 2021, all courses were very busy on the days when the weather has been favourable. As of April 12, approximately 5,000 combined rounds of golf were played Crescent Drive, Kildonan Park and Windsor Park.

“We had multiple days where the tee sheet was completely full,” said Ben Fey, Golf Services General Manager.

Golf Services COVID-19 guidelines

Our courses are all following COVID-19 protocols and are well positioned to offer a fun and safe way to enjoy the great outdoors this season.

“Current public health measures are being followed by our staff to ensure golfers feel safe when they arrive, during their round, and as they depart our facilities,” said Fey.

In addition to providing a safe environment, our courses are looking better than ever.

“New tee boxes, bunkers, and drainage work – along with new maintenance techniques – have contributed to municipal courses being in great condition,” said Fey.

While Kildonan Park and Windsor Park golf courses offer challenges for everyone, our courses are welcoming to golfers of all skill levels.

“The courses allow for novice golfers to be comfortable and learn the different aspects of the game, with Crescent Drive being an appealing choice for those new to the game, as it is a shorter and more forgiving course,” said Fey, adding you can book your tee times online.

This year is extra special for Kildonan Park Golf Course. Established in 1921, the course is celebrating 100 years in operation. To celebrate its centennial, a series of events and promotions are planned, culminating in an anniversary event on July 28.
