The final step of the new golf course is beginning.

The new golf course road construction began last week with tree clearing.

Once the tree clearing process is completed, the next step will be to grate the cleared area in preparation to continue building the road.

The plan is to grate all the way down to the highway where there will be a new set of lights at the intersection of 129th street in Blairmore and the Highway.

The road currently being built will connect to Grassy Mountain road and continue up to the new clubhouse that will open in 2020.

Jason Roth, Head Professional, Crowsnest Pass Golf Club, says Grassy Mountain road isn’t able to be the main access from the highway due to safety reasons.

“The road is what we're waiting on to get into the clubhouse because we can't use Grassy Mountain Road because it's too dangerous. There needs to be an intersection because a lot of people will be using the road. It has to be safe.”

The Crowsnest Pass Golf and Country Club will continue to operate out of the old clubhouse for the 2019 season before their move to the new facility in 2020.

As for golfers, they will be able to play the old course for the first part of the golf season before the new course opens on the July Long Weekend.
Once the new course opens, visitors will still be able to park at the old clubhouse location and can ride up to the new course.

After completion of the road happens hopefully in late November, operations will move entirely to the new clubhouse where golfers will be able to make a shorter cart ride to the new course for the 2020 golf season.

Roth says he’s excited this process has begun.

“It's exciting to start the road because that's the last step. Once we get that road in and the clubhouse done we'll be ready to rock.”

Having the new access road will make it much easier for visitors of all ages to enjoy the new world-class golf course and clubhouse.
