Grande Meadows

Course Update

July 31, 2020

Another month comes to an end and Grande Meadows is a busy spot with plenty of golfers out enjoying the great weather and golf conditions.

We'll Pay For Your Play In 2021

Grande Meadows has started a promotion for the remainder of the season whereby one person gets the opportunity to have his/her membership paid for the 2021 golf season. Every green fee paying non-member will get a ballot each time that person pays to play at Grande Meadows for the remainder of the 2020 season.


Grande Meadows Tournament Committee Report

After a successful B. P. Open Tournament this past weekend the Tournament Committee is in the process of organizing a couple of more tournaments including a Best Ball Tournament in August and the 23rd Annual Grande Meadows Invitational Golf Tournament from September 11 – 13. The Invitational was originally scheduled to take place from June 12 – 14 but was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Further details will be available soon on the Grande Meadows website and social media sites.

Men's Night

Men's Night continues to be very popular among male golfers with over 30 players coming out every Thursday evening to enjoy a round with fellow members. This year golfers book their own tee times from 4:00 pm to 5:30 pm. There is a different game each night as well as a 50/50 draw.

13th Annual Burin Peninsula Open Golf Tournament

47 golfers teed it up on a beautiful morning Saturday July 25. Matthew Hackett captured his first B. P. Open title with a solid round of 75 to win by 3 strokes over defending champion Perry Stone. Rachel Day carded a score of 97 to win her first Ladies title as well by one stroke over Jennifer Nolan who shot 98. Ches Cribb won the Men's Competitive Division 2 by one stroke over Bob Banfield as his 79 bested Banfield's 80. Art Cluett captured the Men's Senior Division 1 with a score of 88 to win by 1 stroke over Ben Grandy and Brad Russell who both carded 89's. Bill Buffett won the Men's Senior Division 2 with an 89 while Terry White's 96 placed him second.

All golfers who came out had a great day with many positive comments regarding Grande Meadows first tournament of the season. Below is a comment from Stuart MacGillivray of Bally Haly who was playing Grande Meadows for the first time Saturday.

Hi Barry,

I just wanted to thank you once again for such a great time Saturday. It was my first time at Grande Meadows and it certainly won't be my last. From the moment I stepped out of my car, Matthew passed by and introduced himself (which caught myself and my fiance right off guard!) and then walking to the practice green another gentleman approached me and asked if I was MacGillivray and came up to have a great chat. There are so many kind people at your club. The group I played with of Matthew, Perry, and Deon were excellent to me and I had so much fun. The course is in immaculate condition and very enjoyable to play. I'm looking forward to playing it again now that I'm a bit more familiar with it! I appreciate everything you did to coordinate things right down to the Grande Meadows ball divot tool and marker you attached to my draw prize.

Thanks again and looking forward to seeing you and the club again soon!

Stuart

Please note that the Grande Meadows Clubhouse and Pro Shop are open for shopping and Mulligans Restaurant is open from Thursday to Sunday. Check the Grande Meadows website for open times and the menu.

 

This week's shoutout goes to Sam Myles who at age 93 is still over fishing for golf balls in the areas around Holes #6, 7, 8 and 9. It is indeed great to see Mr. Myles row his little boat up and down the shoreline with his little dip net over the side waiting to spot a wayward shot by some golfer. Congratulations Sam! Keep it up.

 

 

All the best and stay safe.

Cheers

Barry
