Golfers in Saskatchewan take note – the province is considered among the most accessible for public golfers in the country.
There are a total of 206 courses in the province – 202 which offer daily fee access.
Of the 206 courses in Saskatchewan, 149 are nine-holes and one is 12-holes, representing 73 per cent of golf facilities in the province.
Broken down, Saskatchewan had the highest percentage of nine-hole facilities among all Canadian provinces and U.S. states.
However, no new facilities are under development in Saskatchewan, according to the report, and five are reported to have closed since the last report in 2015.
The report, released Wednesday, also found that golf contributes an estimate $599-milllion towards Saskatchewan’s gross domestic product.
And for trivia buffs, the last Canadian to win the Canadian Open was from Saskatchewan.
Pat Fletcher, from the Saskatoon Golf and Country Club, won in 1954 at Point Grey Golf Club in Vancouver.
