Braintree Golf Course Grooming Ski Trails with New Snowmobile Device

Braintree Municipal Golf Course is booming – last year the course saw "unprecedented" growth in gift card sales, totalling $35,000 just between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

A towable groomer for the Braintree Municipal Golf Course's snowmobile arrived just in time for the recent snowfall.

The device, whose purchase was approved by the Town Council earlier this year, is designed to pack, level, groom and cut ski tracks into the snow, Director Daryn Brown said in an email. It is the same groomer that was used at the Vancouver Olympics.

The course's utility snowmobile was bought two years ago, but Brown said he waited on purchasing the groomer because of a lack of snow last winter.

"Anticipating a snowier winter I decided to order it about a month ago and it recently arrived just in time for our last snow fall," Brown said. "I plan to start grooming a series for paths throughout the golf course starting [Tuesday]. The additional snow from yesterday should help fill in some thin spots in the snow cover and provide for a nice groomed trail."
