Apprentice Professional: Creston Golf Club

The Creston Golf Club was founded in 1954, when a group of local citizens formed a society, and purchased 100 acres of previously logged Crown land for $265.  Alan Staples, the first president said, “That may not sound like much, but we had a hell of a time raising the money”. That about sums up the gradual development of the Creston Club, heavy on volunteerism, with much support from the community; accomplishing minor miracles with local ingenuity and limited resources.
