Starting Thursday May 18

The Men’s Night Committee would like to welcome everyone back for the 2023 Men’s Night Golf Season. The 2022 Men’s Night was the most successful in our history with an average of around 40 players participating each Thursday evening.

At the end of last season an email was sent to all participants thanking you all for your participation and asking you for any suggestions that you may have which would add to our program. We received 3 suggestions which we have implemented into our 2023 schedule below. One suggestions was to have a one club plus a putter evening as well as a Par 3 night where all holes would be made into Par 3’s. The third suggestion was to have a mid-season finale to mirror the year end finale. That mid season or Semi-Finale as we called it is scheduled for Saturday July 29. Details will come later.

As well we have left 2 Thursday evenings – June 22 and August 31 – open right now which could be used to reschedule a rain out night or to include some other idea for a game that may come up.

This year again a big thank you goes out to Albert Pike and Pike’s Ace Building Centre for coming back as a sponsor on Hole #7. As well Castle Building Supplies from Marystown, JP Financial Services of Marystown, OK Tire of Salt Pond and Hooper’s Construction Services of Burin have come onboard as sponsors for this season. A big thank you to Derek Fudge of Castle Building Supplies, Jamie Gair of JG Financial Services, Wade Bennett of OK Tire and Wyatt Hooper of Hooper’s Construction Services – we thank you for your support.

The fee for this year is $10 each evening with a 50-50 draw, deuce pot, skins as well as prize winners for scores. The prizes will be added to your account for use at the clubhouse.

Just a note that our sponsor prizes will be used for on course prizes including Closest-to-the-pin prizes on Holes #3 & #7,  or some other such contest as closest-to-the-pin second shot, closest to the line, etc. Each participating golfer will be eligible for only 1(one) of these on-course prizes each evening.

As well each Thursday evening there will be a 2 for 1 Molson product available to each participating player.

We endeavor to put together a fun evening for our members to socialize while playing a fun game of golf. As well the evening is a great help to Grande Meadows in achieving financial success. Please feel free to pass along any ideas or suggestions to any member of the committee listed below.

We will endeavor to post the names of the winners on the Grande Meadows website by Friday morning each week. The game and notes for each Thursday night will be posted to the website by Monday or Tuesday prior to Men’s Night.

Thank you all for your support during 2022 and we look forward to seeing your all out each Thursday evening this year.
