ESTEVAN - One of Estevan’s newest businesses held its grand opening celebration Wednesday.
A large crowd attended the festivities at Global Golf Plus, located in the Estevan Market Mall. The event featured tours, demonstrations of the golf and baseball simulators, a ribbon cutting, lunch and more.
Peter Sereggela, who owns the business with Rob Peloquin, said they are thrilled with the response for the business since it opened in late November. Sereggela couldn't imagine doing this anywhere else.
He praised general manager Sheldon Beatty for his efforts since the business opened and the Estevan Market Mall for being a great place to have a business.
Sereggela said he wasn’t a fan of golf simulators until Peloquin introduced him to the ones that are used by Global Golf Plus. The baseball simulators are the first of their kind in Canada for a business like this.
The company has been adding to its offerings since it opened.
Steve Smith with the Southeast Sask. Economic Partnership praised the business. He said SSEP and the City of Estevan played a small part in assisting this new company get off the ground.
“Global Golf Plus had submitted a grant application form sometime ago to the MCTAP [Municipal Coal Transition Assistance Program} … for this assistance. This grant application outlined their business plan along with the economic impact their business would have for the communities responsible for granting the funds from the MCTAP program,” said Smith.
“With diligence on reviewing the grant application by the SSEP group and city, it was determined that Global Golf Plus had met the terms and criteria set out by the groups to be successful in receiving a grant from the MCTAP program.”
