The Loon Lake and District Golf and Country Club in Makwa Lake Provincial Park is set to begin the construction of a new clubhouse.
Due to an accidental fire, the original clubhouse was destroyed on June 25, 2017. The site was cleaned up, and the course has operated with a temporary clubhouse since. The former facility included a pro shop and restaurant, and once complete, the new clubhouse will have the same features and will continue to be owned and operated by the golf club.
“Golfing has always been a popular activity at Makwa Lake,” Parks, Culture and Sport Minister Gene Makowsky said. “We are pleased that a new clubhouse will be built at the Loon Lake Golf and Country Club that will ensure that golfers and all visitors to the park can enjoy the amenities they have to offer.”
Loon Lake and District Golf and Country Club Inc. have held a lease with the Government of Saskatchewan since the mid-1980s. The organization developed and continues to operate the golf course.
The Government of Saskatchewan plans to enter into a development agreement and a commercial lease agreement which will permit the development and operation of a new clubhouse and will extend the term of the current lease. The total cost to rebuild the clubhouse is covered by insurance. The clubhouse is expected to be ready for use for the 2018 golf season.
