The Golf Shop at Breezy Bend (Head Golf Professional – Kris Ehnes)
This season we started a new Junior Garden project involving many of our
junior members. The Junior Garden is located next to the tee box on hole
#13. Each Tuesday morning through the summer months, we had a crew of 4
junior members who, under the guidance of our Horticulturist Ross, learned
how to properly plant flowers, pull weeds, water plants and overall,
maintain a garden. It was a very fun and enjoyable experience for everyone
involved. Our junior members gained a massive appreciation for the amount
of work that gets put into our golf course on a daily basis and more
specifically the effort that it takes to make a golf course beautiful!
Thank you to Ross for his open mind and excitement to help others learn and
appreciate what goes on behind the scenes here at Breezy Bend. Thank you
also to our other committee members for making this and other future
projects possible: Craig Macleod, Catherine Robertson and Gord McColm. And
finally, a very special thank you goes out to all of the Junior members who
volunteered their time to learn more about the work that is needed to
maintain a golf course: Tazio Cianflone, Adriano Cianflone, Jack Hildebrand,
Jack Ruddick, Wyatt Kelman, Ava Kelman, Gunnar Asmundson, Axel Asmundson, Magnus Asmundson, Lachlan Compton, Connor Rutledge, Jake Spiers and Yusuf Yildir.

Dance! Approximately 50 tickets have been sold to date; please help us
reach our goal of 150 members and guests in attendance.

All money raised from this evening will benefit the Breezy Bend Legacy Fund.
The Legacy Fund was established in 2015 in order to help finance projects
that would not normally be funded using general operating revenue. The
Legacy Fund will be used in coming years for various projects including
aesthetic improvements to the property or for specific golf course upgrades.
We are so pleased with how the inaugural project of the Legacy Fund (The
First Impressions Project) is coming along at the front of our property.
