We are pleased to announce that we have reached our goal of 40 new members in 2019! The new members list below have joined the Club in recent days. Welcome to Breezy Bend Country Club; we trust that you will enjoy your association with us in the coming years!
Let’s make all of our new members feel welcome here at ‘the Friendly Club’.
The Men’s Opening Golf Tournament was held this past Saturday with 124 golfers participating. The winning team, consisting of Jeff Delaney, Bruce Hnatowich, Mike Moore and Ward Gordon, finished with an impressive 12 under par score of 60 and won by two shots! A special thank you to the Tournament Committee led by Club Captain, David Kazina, Kevin O’Donovan, Tom Baker, Brian Epp, Roy Smith, Ryan Baker and Bruce Evans for without whom, the tournament could not go on.
Back by popular demand is the House Committee’s Progressive Jackpot which rewards loyal members for their support of Club events. The names of all Breezy Bend members will be entered into a draw to win a prize of $100.00. The draw will be made at the conclusion of each event listed below. If the member whose name is drawn is not in attendance, the prize will roll over to the next event with another $100 being added to the pot. If no jackpot is claimed throughout the season, the final event could be worth as much as $700.00!
In upcoming event news, our annual all you can eat ‘Lobster Bash’ will be held on Saturday, June 8th. Once again over 600 fresh lobsters will be flown in from the east coast for the enjoyment of our members and their guests. Watch your email inbox for more information on this special event. Reservations are required. Please call (204) 889-GOLF to reserve your table today. This event will sell out quickly!
Sadly, week #1 of Breezy Bend’s Men’s Night was postponed earlier today due to inclement weather. That means that next Wednesday, May 22nd over $1,500 in prizes will be up for grabs! The top 3 low net in 3 equal HDCP groups will receive valuable gift certificates to the Golf Shop, as will all those recording a natural deuce. Four closest to the pin prizes will also be presented to those with the best shot on the four par 3’s. In addition, the Hole-in-One Pot was carried over from 2018 and is now worth $931! Week #1 sponsors Callaway Golf and Molson Coors Canada will be raffling off some valuable door prizes and sampling product prior to tee off. After golf, enjoy Chef’s theme buffet dinner. If you are looking for a group to play regularly with on Wednesday nights, please contact Head Golf Professional, Kris Ehnes at your convenience.
Now that the golf season is upon us, it is time to sign up for this year’s Walker Cup League. Back by popular demand, the Walker Cup is a social partners event that has been around ‘the Bend’ since 1982. This season long, match play mixed league is designed to enable us to meet new people and to play golf with our fellow members. Please note that a team consists of a male and a female but not necessarily spouses. The rules and signup sheets are now posted on both locker room bulletin boards. If you do not have a partner, no problem, sign up as a single and we will find you a playing partner. The Walker Cup sign up deadline is Sunday, May 26th. The fun matches will begin the week of May 27th. For more information, check the bulletin boards or contact Cory at email@example.com New members are very welcome!
