Located on Highway 13, the Stoughton Golf Course is ready for business.

STOUGHTON - The Stoughton Golf Course is situated on the north side of Highway 13, just east of the town, and is nestled among pine and poplar trees with the fresh smell of lilac bushes.

The nine-hole course has seen some upgrades this year, with three of the tees getting new sod; half the sod was generously donated.

With an irrigation system to turn the grounds green, the rain was welcome to fill the dugouts to keep the irrigation going in the drier times.

The clubhouse is managed by Tori Glover. There are two full-time employees and six part-time people, with two students taking care of the ice cream window.

A fully-licensed clubhouse has a menu of burgers, fries and finger foods that will keep the golfers fed, but anyone can enjoy the clubhouse without golfing.

On the south side of the clubhouse is the ice cream palour, offering many different flavours of ice cream. In the sizzling summer months, it sees a steady flow of customers. This year they have twisters with seven flavours, and this is their own version of the DQ Blizzard. The students will keep this area running smoothly from May until September, as long as the weather permits.

Darlene Bowen is the returning manger. Board president Danielle Hoffman said Bowen is amazing at her job and keeps the grounds in top shape. There are two full-time greenskeepers and one part-time employee to help out, and to keep the rental golf carts clean and ready to go.

They already have had tournaments and many more are in the books.

On July 5, during Stoughton Daze, the course will have a Texas scramble tournament, and on Aug. 24, the Stoughton Chamber of Commerce will also have a Texas scramble event with prizes at each hole.

On Sept. 14, the Crossroads Inn will hold its annual tournament and the Stoughton Swimming Pool will have a closest-to-the-pin tournament, but this date has not been determined.

Ladies' night is Tuesday, while the men go to battle on Wednesday evenings. No group is needed for this, as they will pair people up to play.

The golf club board is extremely excited about receiving sponsorship from the Stoughton Credit Union for $75,000. This will give the credit union naming rights for the next 15 years.

In September, they hope to start upgrades to the clubhouse, giving it a fresh and new look for the next season.
