Community effort helps golf course


When the community steps up, things happen.

There's a lot of new white sand out at Banks Lake Golf Course, thanks to two benefit events.

The first was a golf tournament that raised about $2,500 to revitalize sand traps at the golf course.

The tournament, run by former Grant County Port District 7 commissioner Stan Conklin, produced enough money for the golf course to order a truckload of white sand from the Inchelium area.

A second benefit, a car wash, held by Jess Ford on Sept. 2, produced a total of $1,165 toward more sand for the course.

"It was a great community effort," Jess Ford Manager Garrett Jess stated, and he thanked all the people who came by for the car wash.

The 18-hole golf course is owned and operated by Grant County Port District 7.
