Grande Meadows Golf Course continues to see an increase in golfers playing as the summer rolls on. It's great to see lots of activity at the course during these trying times.
Grande Meadows Facebook
Grande Meadows social media sites are undergoing some changes these days. Jacob Farrell, a Grade 11 MCHS student is using his social media talents towards improving and connecting the Grande Meadows Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts as well as helping with the Tourism Newfoundland & Legendary Coasts sites.
Junior golf goes Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9:00 am while Future Links goes Mondays and Wednesdays at 5:00 pm. Junior registration has doubled this year to 36 young golfers while Future Links has 18 young children learning the basics of golf. If anyone would like to volunteer to help out on either Tuesday or Thursday mornings please call Junior Co-ordinator Eric Evans at the Clubhouse at 826-2600, Stan McCarthy at 277-4566 or John Bugden at 891-1744.
Men's Night began Thursday July 2 and there have been an average of 32 members coming out each evening. The golf winners as well as the 50-50 winners can be found by checking out the Grande Meadows website. Kudos go out to the Men's Night organizing committee for the great job they do in having each night run very smoothly.
Ladies Night has been going on each Monday night for the past month and 15 ladies turned out this past Monday evening for an enjoyable round of golf as well as a lunch.

This week's shoutout goes to Bill Hanrahan who recorded his first ever hole-in-one on July 4 while playing along with brothers Frank and Dick. Bill used his 7 iron to ace the 150 yard Par 3 Hole #3 into a light breeze. Congratulations Bill!
All the best and stay safe.
