Richardson Pioneer Ltd. contributes $25,000 to Club House construction

Richardson Pioneer Golf Club

The Three Hills Golf Club newly built clubhouse saw a successful season thanks to support from local donors and the Richardson Foundation. The golf course’s clubhouse, and parts of the surrounding area, were damaged beyond repair after an extensive flooding event in the spring of 2018. Now reinstated to its former glory, the golf course continues to be frequented by all demographics and, in keeping with provincial health guidelines, saw a successful summer season. Richardson Pioneer Limited was pleased to join the community in supporting the project and donated $25,000 toward the construction of a brand-new clubhouse.

“Richardson Pioneer views this as an important and very meaningful initiative. A functioning clubhouse is integral to the services the golf course offers,” says Clay Lawson, Location Manager, Three Hills Ag Business Centre. “The damage the old site sustained was devastating and so we were proud to help contribute to the realization of the new build. Many of our customers use and enjoy this golf course. It is an important fixture in the community.”

The 28,000 square-foot facility features a kitchen, bar, retail space, and Richardson Pioneer Patio and provides open concept spaces for youth, ladies, men, and seniors leagues to connect and participate in tournaments throughout the peak months. The golf course and adjacent seasonal campground attract many visitors from both within the community and surrounding areas, generating important social and economic benefits.

Says Lawson, “The Three Hills golf course is truly one of the nicest in this part of the province. Although it’s been a different kind of year, the course and facility attract regular and new crowds – it is a major community asset and we hope it will continue to drive tourism to the area.”
