YORKTON - The Deer Park Men’s Club had an agreement with the City of Yorkton to fund $136,719 of the work to create a new #7 green at the golf course. 

The agreement initiated in 2018 was to have the men’s club pay the money over a five-year period. 

But, at the regular meeting of Yorkton Council club president Cliff Trombley made a presentation of the final $9719 “year years in advance of our original arrangement.” 

The club had provided $65,000 initially, then made a payment of $40,000 in 2019, and $22,000 in 2020. 

Trombley said the Club is now looking at their next potential project at the course, adding they already have $30,000 set aside. 

When they have decided on a project, Trombley told Council they would be looking for one adjustment from the city. 

“The one variance in the proposal from past proposals is that we will be requesting that the City assist our endeavor(s) by supplying the clay fill required for the next project(s). The reason we ask for this is that the city has access to this type of material (for example, the city has been hauling clay fill to the landfill on a continuous basis over the past number of years),” detailed material circulated to Council. 

“To put this issue in perspective, the clay fill on the new #7 green was over 27 percent of the total cost of the project (over $35,000.00),” said Trombley. 

“When we decide on our next project, we are asking that you start stock-piling clay fill in the location of the proposed project as the clay becomes available. We understand timing may be an issue, but if you have a three to six-month lead time, we are certain that you can coordinate it with projects that are going on within the City to redirect the fill to the golf course instead of the landfill.” 

City manager Lonnie Kaal said that working with the club to stockpile fill should not be a problem.
