Sudbury Living - Summer 2008 - 49

n recr e at ion Mike and Sam Yawney have found just the right formula for mixing family, business and golf. hosting more than 200 tournaments each summer. That, combined with the general public’s thirst for golf and this year’s membership nearing 900, there will be close to 100,000 rounds of golf played at the four courses. Both brothers are amazed at how far they have come over the past quarter century. “Mike and I do not always agree or see eye to eye on things, but that is inevitable in any business,” said Sam. “But being in business with your brother means that when you have a falling out or an argument, you talk it out among your family and not with your lawyer.” His older brother is in agreement. “Sam and I have had a great ride for the last 25 years in Sudbury. The thing is when it is a family business, you move on when you have a disagreement. You forgive and forget because at the end of the day, this is still your family.” The Yawneys are celebrating their 25th anniversary this year by offering special promotions, incentives and fundraising initiatives at all four Golf Sudbury courses. SL Cedar Green Golf Course will begin watering its greens using a newlyconstructed pond. In the past, water was taken from Junction Creek. In recent years, especially during hot, dry summers, members of the Junction Creek Stewardship Commitee became concerned that water levels were becoming dangerously low for fish that inhabit the creek. Following discussions between the golf course owners, the Ministry of Environment and Stewardship Committee members, Mike Yawney decided to have the pond built. Sam Yawney “It was the right thing to do,” says Yawney. “Sure, it was expensive, but it was important to do it.” “This is a great example of how people in the community are coming together to restore Junction Creek,” says Jorge Virchez, co-chair of the Junction Creek Stewardship Committee. “Many species of fish, including the brook trout we have been reintroducing, depend on deep, cool water to survive,” Virchez said “This will be a great help to us as we try to improve trout habitat in Junction Creek.” Mike Yawney
