Another great year for the Golf For The Cure! Thank you to all the ladies who came out and attended and thank you to our kitchen staff for a fantastic job. This is the 14th year for our ladies to hold this Golf for the Cure event at our club. It is also the 14th Year for Golf Canada to partner with the Canadian Cancer Society and spearhead the events. In the 14 years locally, provincially, and nationally, Golf For the Cure has raised $5.9 million for Breast Cancer awareness and research. Money raised in NB goes to the NB Branch of the Cancer Society. A second objective is to introduce new ladies to the game of golf.
Congratulations to the team of Brent Matheson and Laura Wesselius, who were the winners of the annual Club Mixed Championship ⛳.After 18 holes, they were tied with the team of Roger & Tracy Sears with scores of 73. This forced a play-off on hole #1, where Brent and Laura easily won with a good second shot onto the green and sunk the putt for birdie! ️♂️.

As we near the end of a great season at our Club, we are beginning to focus on the 2017 season. The pre authorized payment plan will be offered once again, as an option to pay for your 2017 membership. Beginning in November of 2016 and ending in April 2017, six monthly payments are processed on either your credit card or your bank account. The added bonus is that you pay 2016 rates for your 2017 membership. You simply provide Sharon Chase with either your credit card number, or a voided cheque. Sharon will be at the Club from 10:00 A.M.until 5:00 P.M. on Saturday.
In talking with members who took advantage of the pre authorized payment plan last year, in their words ” it is the only way to go”. For those of you that take advantage of the program a draw will be done in the spring, for a golf shirt from our Pro Shop.
