Out with the old in with the new. The month started with a bang with the demolition of our old clubhouse and the official opening of our new club house.
We’ve got some great Junior players out there representing PVGCC this summer. The past couple of weeks, Braeden Burgess, Dylan Chase and Laura Wesselius were competing in the East Coast Junior Championship at the Bouctouche Golf Club (June 28-29); and the NB Junior Championship at Gage Golf Club (July 5-6-7). They all posted some great scores throughout the tournaments with Laura finishing 4th overall at the NB Junior Championship, which earned her a spot on Team NB for Golf Canada’s Junior Girl’s Canadian Championships. She’ll be heading to the Links of Penn Hills in Shubenacadie, Nova Scotia August 2-5th!! Congrats Laura! PVG is proud of all of your accomplishments and your love of this great game! Keep up the great work!

Low gross went to the two some of Jude & Bill McDonald with a score of 50. Congrats to Dennis, Chase, Jude & Bill!
On Wednesday evening, July 20th the PVGCC Ladies Division hosted a Golf Fore the Cure fundraising event. We had 68 ladies enjoy an evening of Golf, fun, laughter, food, prizes, and more. The best part is that we all walked away knowing that all funds raised that evening were going to Breast Cancer research & awareness in NB. It was a great evening, and a job well done by our event coordinator, Marilyn Pollock!
Also on July 20th Brent Matheson & Peter Moore were playing a “Gross Match Play” and Brent had a “Hole-In-One” on # 12, which is a Par 4! Brent finished the round with a score of 74, and Peter shot 93. Congrats to Brent from all your friends @ PVGCC!

If you haven’t been out for a Friday Fun Night you are definitely missing out on a fun time. On July 8th we celebrated Christmas in July. Even the weather co-operated as it felt like snow. A Christmas tree and wrapped presents for all were the highlight of the evening. A BIG shout out for Lana Manuge who organized this fun evening.
Now we know why they needed to bring a shovel and garden gloves to Friday Fun Night!! on July 22nd. We had 45 shrubs very generously donated by friends Hart & Janice Kunze! These folks regularly participate in our FRIDAY FUN NIGHTS, so following the golf this past Friday evening, all of the evening’s golfers made quick work of Planting all of the shrubs in about 40 minutes!! HUGE thanks goes out for Hart & Janice and all of the participants for their help with the digging and planting. GREAT TEAM WORK!!
