The 2017 Golf Season was certainly one of extremes with a late and very wet spring and a hot dry summer. Our fairway irrigation saved us from the plight of many courses that ended up with hard burnt out fairways. We ended off the season with a great fall which is a mark in the positive column.
We want to congatulate our Club Champions: Men - Troy Letourneau, Ladies - Huberte Landry, Sr. Men - Bob Gray and Super Senion Men's Champ - Pat McLellan. This year's Match Play winner was Paul Nicholson. The team of Huberte Landry, Connie Conte, CLaudette Landry and Beth McDougall won the Provincial Golf Fore the Cure event in St. Stephen and represented us well at the national tournament.
We want to thank all the volunteers who help with our member programs, both men's and ladies. Without your support and hard work, these programs would not exist. We also need to commend our Starters (Rick, Marcel, Frank and Charlie) who did a great job in keeping the golfers organized and on time.
There have been some changes in the Golf Canada program. Everyone is eligible for the bronze level membership and can upgrade to the gold level for $30 (+ tax). Anyone playing in outside tournaments and events should get this one. Additional benifits to the Golf Membership include a Golf Canada Handicap Factor, Equipment ID labels (valued at $14.95), $2500 Equipment Replacement & $1000 Window Protection Guarantee, Free home delivery of Golf Canada Magazine, Participate in the National and Provincial Events, Internationally recognized membership card. If you wish to keep your handicap simply as a record and play in house events, we have added a Maplewood program to the handcap kiosk at no charge.
There have basicly been no changes to our Membership rates, however we have adjusted for the following:
Any Membership can be paid by credit card (both early and regular rates) and we will take this at the clubhouse only. You can also pay your membership through e-transfer as well as cash, cheque or debit. We have initiated a Member Referral Program. If you refer a new member, they must not have been a member for at least 2 years. For each referral you receive Member Bonus Cards redeemable for an 18 hole round of golf or an 18 hole cart rental. You can use these yourself, bring a guest or give it to a friend. You must accompany the new member when they purchase their membership in order to receive your Bonus Cards. You receive 3 cards for a couple or family, 2 for an adult or intermediate membership and 1 for a junior membership.
For anyone wishing to pay for early membership by cash, debit or credit card, the clubhouse will be open on March 16th and 17th from 10 am to 2 pm.
We will be participating in the Go Golf Moncton Consumer Golf Show again this year. The show is scheduled for March 24th and 25th at the Lions Center, 55 Mark Ave in Moncton. The show is bigger, better and more centrally located. You can keep updated through their website at www.gogolfmoncton.ca
Hope to see you all in the Spring
