Danny Jutras has been a keen competitor and a contributor to the game of golf for more than 40 years.
Jutras has dreamed, played, coached, taught and worked golf since the age of 11.Under the tutorship of Hubert and Alice Cooke, he learned about the game of golf, not only how to play it, but how to become absorbed in it.
As a competitor, Jutras captured city and provincial age-group championships in the 1950s and 1960s and also competed nationally as a member of the Saskatchewan junior golf team.
Since 1975, he has served as the managing professional at Cooke Municipal Golf Course. During his term of service, he has worked diligently to maintain the “Cooke Tradition” established by his mentors, Hubert and Alice Cooke and Clayton Robb. He has successfully managed the golf course through a period of tremendous growth and change in the golf industry. As an example of that growth, the number of rounds played at Cooke has grown from 21,000 in 1975 to over 44,000 in 1999.
The 1993 Prince Albert Sportsman of the Year, Jutras was recently awarded Master Professional status by the CPGA. Of more than 3,000 CPGA members in Canada, only 14 have achieved this recognition.
