The warmer weather has chased the snow away at Granite Pointe, allowing Golf Operations Manager Reg Clarkson to open all 18 holes for play beginning Monday, April 18th.

In 2021, the course opened to full operations on Friday, April 16 after kicking opened the doors a few days earlier with a soft nine-hole track for golfers.

“Yes, here we go,” said Golf Operations Manager Reg Clarkson.

The first tee time Monday is set for 8 a.m. with the pro shop ready for golfers at 7:30 a.m.

Clarkson said all 18 holes will be ready for play along with the driving range.

This is not the first time in 2022 Granite Pointe has seen golfers at West Richards Street location.

During the winter, golfers have been refining their game by taking advantage of the two simulators in the clubhouse.

The simulators allowed players to play many different courses in BC and North American as well as practise skills in preparation for the 2022 season.

Granite Pointe, a par 72, 6,209-yard course, has a rich history dating back to 1919 when a local group of men started the course in the Rosemont district of Nelson.

Granite Pointe remained a nine-hole course until the expansion to 18 holes happened in 1993. The course remains a vital part of Nelson’s vibrant community.
