Golf club apologizes to Wood

The president of the board of directors of Kitchen Creek Golf Club has written a formal apology to former club pro Steve Wood for the “unfounded allegations” that were directed towards him during the 2005 season.
“At no time has the Board of Directors condoned or supported these allegations,” Jon Dupuis wrote in a letter dated Oct. 26, a copy of which was faxed to the Times the following day.
“Furthermore, the Board of Directors would like to state that in all of your actions, on our behalf, you have acted in a professional manner that revealed a commitment to the highest standards of honesty and integrity,” Dupuis wrote.
“In closing, we would like to thank you for your years of service to the club and to wish you continued success in all future endeavours,” he concluded.
Wood, a C.P.G.A. professional, resigned as club pro, effective Oct. 31, back in September over allegations he had skimmed funds from the club, which has been losing money for years.
He had been club pro at Kitchen Creek for six seasons.
Wood, an 11-year pro, recently was named president of the Manitoba PGA.
