Pipestone Golf Club
Pipestone Golf Club started out as a hobby farmer's field and an idea for a family business. Starting in 1987, The Hanson Family (Wilf, Mavis, Tammie and Royce) built the course themselves. With the help of friends and a few employees, they reached their opening goal in August of the next year. The family opened their 9 hole course, then named Pipestone Putters, to the public on August 7, 1988.
The club was named after the nearby Pipestone Creek and the word "putters" was added to give a fun spin on the game and to welcome beginner and family golfers. The name was recently changed to simply Pipestone Golf Club to better represent what the course has developed into.
There has always been a dinosaur on the club logo to represent the big dinosaur find at the local Pipestone Creek. The original dinosaur logo resembled the fun-loving dino from The Flintstones to help invite new and family golfers to the course.
The logo changed along with the name and now is based on the pachyrhinosaurus fossils found nearby. (Note: This dinosaur find has sparked enough interest to build a dinosaur museum near Pipestone Creek Park. We will keep you updated on the progress)
