How can you have a resort without someone thinking about Golf?

The land on which the course is situated was not a part of the Shields development and the Province of Saskatchewan retained ownership of that parcel.  It was just a piece of vacant property which for a while became home to a number of horses owned by the Couture’s and children got pleasure out of tobogganing down the hills.

The area was very rough and full of embedded rocks, but protruding through the native sod.  The Shields Property Owners Association learned that Kelsey Institute had a training program to train students in using heavy equipment, so Ken Gunn, a Shields property owner and administrator at Kelsey arranged that for the cost of fuel the students would stockpile the topsoil, remove the rocks and smooth out the area.  It was then harrowed by Harry Friesen and seeded by Harold Baker.  Part of the area was used as a playground and the heavy growth of hay was cut and sold.

A grant of $1,050.00 was received from the Provincial Government in 1986 with all other costs being offset by revenue from golf activities.  The course began to blossom as a result of many volunteers such as Hazel & John  Campbell, Bob Conway, Charlie Newlove, Don Horosko, Harold Empey, Edward Benesh and others.  Mr Benesh was the first greens keeper responsible for the golf course. He took much pride in developing, maintaining and promoting the course as it grew from a 3 to 6 to 9 hole golf course. The Golf Committee has been very active and Shields developed an asset that we are all proud of.

The Windmill became a part of the course when Charlie Newlove and Bob Conway searched the countryside to find a windmill that could be moved, restored and erected as an enhancement to the area. Golf carts became so popular that Council passed a resolution to allow the use of carts in the community to go to and from the course.  Of course no one would think of doing otherwise.
