G olf courses are a bit like houses. As
they age, things deteriorate and capital
expenditure is required to protect the
owner’s investment. Otherwise, the
value of that asset will inevitably decrease.
Edmonton’s Derrick Golf and Winter Club
found itself in this position in the spring
of 2010, when I was hired to study the
club’s half-century old course and make
recommendations for improvement.
