Here is a sneak peek of an upcoming project at the Dakota Dunes golf course. Stone installation will be starting very soon on this beauty and we're excited to be a part of it. Not a bad back drop to be installing stone at all day.
This clubhouse is located on the historical Whitecap Dakota First Nation lands at the heights of the South Saskatchewan River Valley Basin. Dakota Dunes Golf Links is laid spaciously throughout natural sand dune formations and the indigenous prairie grasses that surround it's edges. Five tee deck yardages ranging from 5100 to 7300 yards remove the threat of being over-powered by today’s technology.
Golfers playing a round of golf at Dakota Dunes will experience the ever-changing beauty and character that this special property has to offer. Flora changes regularly throughout the golf season. Crocuses, cactus flowers, wild roses, yellow violets and more repaint the dune-scapes and the rugged land that frames in this golf course.
Owner and Stone Carver Ryan Watson is seen here starting the delicate feather detail on his latest hand carved angel project. This 30" X 10" piece of Indiana Limestone will be installed over the entryway of an early 20th century Victorian home in Saskatoon, SK. Watson predicts around 30 hours of carving will be into this one once the face and details are complete.

The Timber Pointe sign is now installed. Nothing beats natural cross lighting to make the hand carved details on our sign pop! We were lucky to have the building owners and designers give us the freedom to choose the stone. They were also open to incorporating Owner, Ryan Watson's unique masonry designs, details and hand carved features into their project. Watson chose Buckingham Country Manor natural thin veneer for the walls and Indiana Limestone to surround the windows. The hand-carved sign is also Indiana Limestone and took approximately 80 hours from start to finish. This project is a definite show stopper and is well worth a drive by.
