CHANGES ARE IN THE WIND
Changes are in the wind, some already underway, with more planned for the future. “The course is no longer private, it’s wide open to the public and we have sponsorship programs,” says Ian, noting the entire 18-hole course is now open.
The driving range has undergone a facelift and addition of a mini pro shop and full-time greeter to serve food and refreshments.
DUFFER’S DEN GRILL & LOUNGE
Duffer’s Den offers a takeout service and can feed up to 90 people at one time on the enlarged, outdoor patio, while adhering to Covid sanitization and social distancing restrictions.
While relatively new to Duffer’s Den, the cook has longtime experience and has made s few changes to the menu – with more to come. “One new addition is breakfast,” Ian says, adding food specials change on a regular basis. “Wing Wednesdays are so popular they’re often sold out and there’s Fish & Chip Friday.”
Covid guidelines are also front of mind as Ian and Karyn hope to be able to offer live music provided by local artists.
The dozen year-round staff members will be joined by up to 60 more seasonal employees, with positions available for youth as well.
“We’re all about supporting local vendors and artists,” Ian says, pointing out he and Karyn are intent on serving the community and don’t want to introduce something the public doesn’t want. “While we have ideas, the people might have better ones.”
