The long road back for the Highwood Golf and Country Club takes another step Friday, June 26 when they let golfers loose on four newly constructed holes.

General Manager Chad Tomlinson says it's a big deal for both the course and the community.

"It feels like the culmination of a lot of hard work and restoration over the last couple of years and I know our members and guests are really excited to play four new holes."


Tomlinson says as exciting as that is, they hope to one up it next season.

"Our plan is actually to have a six hole short course, which puts us at 28 holes, which I'll answer a lot of questions about I'm sure. We're trying to finish the major construction work this year, which seems very realistic as the weather's cooperating, we've hardly lost any days to rain this June. And the timeline for opening is slated for late next summer."

They kick things off at 5:30 p.m. with a ceremonial first tee off from long time member Lloyd Frostad, and High River Mayor Craig Snodgrass, followed by a four hole shot-gun tournament.
