Af­ter a 16-year de­vel­op­ment pe­riod, Ron and Al Weeks have opened a nine-hole golf course in Wal­lace River.

The course started out as a fam­ily pro­ject, as a few golf holes that friends and fam­ily could en­joy.

But one thing led to another and Ron and Al kept work­ing on their lit­tle dream, and year af­ter year, kept clear­ing land on the shores of the pic­turesque Wal­lace River near Tata­m­agouche.

“Never did I dream, in the be­gin­ning, that it would lead to this,” said Ron Weeks, owner of the course. “My son Al and I have worked hard to de­velop this course, and it’s a real thrill now to see peo­ple com­ing out and en­joy­ing their round of golf, and en­joy­ing what we have done.”

There will be a grand open­ing on Satur­day, June 10, be­tween 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m., in­clud­ing a rib­bon-cut­ting cer­e­mony and bar­be­cue.
