Several events planned this year to commemorate milestone

The Hope Golf Club is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.

Owners/operators Kerry and Claudette Krahn will be hosting several events to commemorate this milestone, including an anniversary season kickoff party on April 12, homecoming 18 hole tournament and banquet dinner May 23-25, and a community barbecue and parking lot party on July 20.

“Our goal is to celebrate everybody’s previous involvement,” said Kerry.

“It’s good to have a course that’s in this small community that’s supported as well as it is. It doesn’t happen everywhere.”

This year, each hole will have new flags and will be sponsored by local businesses. The Grill on the Green Restaurant was recently renovated and a historical committee is collecting data and pictures that will be displayed on the clubhouse walls. Upgrades to the cart pathways are also in the works.

More than 100 people attended the opening of Hope Golf and Country Club on July 1, 1964. Carl Anderson of Emil Anderson Construction donated a lot of the materials and equipment needed to make the new course possible.

Surrounded by mountains and rivers, the club continues to offer a unique golfing experience on a challenging course.

There are currently about 140 active members and many former residents return annually to tee off.
