TRURO, N.S. – Truro Golf Club is set to open April 25, and is looking forward to an eventful season.

The tarps came off of TGC’s greens on Master’s Sunday and the course is in great condition.

CPGA pro, Stuart Cox, has been working closely with the town and community to re-open the driving range. The range closed in August 2016, without any signs of when it would reopen.

“I can’t really say too much about it now,” Cox said.

“But it (the range) will be open in May, if not earlier.”

TGC is having a fundraiser for Eric Banks on May 22. The Truro native recently earned conditional status on the Canadian golf tour.

On Victoria Day weekend, TGC is hosting a scramble and portions of the entry fee will support Banks’s professional campaign.

There will be signed memorabilia auctioned off from NHL players, and Billy Horschel and Chris DeMarco of the PGA tour, with proceeds going toward Banks’s tournament expenses.

A new nine-hole membership has become available for those wishing to join TGC. “Other courses are doing something similar. Some people have busy schedules, who can’t commit to a full membership, and it’s a good stepping stone,” Cox said.

The nine-hole membership costs $550 plus tax.

TGC will be hosting three Nova Scotia Golf Association events over the next three years:

2017 – NSGA Men’s Provincial Senior
2018 – NSGA Ladies Provincials
2019 – NSGA Junior Provincials
