Friday, August 28 2020 - Grande Meadows Golf Course Members Update August 28

Grande Meadows

Course Update

August 28, 2020

 

We are approaching the end of summer and the warm dry weather continues. Thanks to Bill Lee and the outside workers for keeping the course in such good conditions. I think most golfers will agree that the greens this year have been the best we have seen in a long time.
 

23rd Annual Grande Meadows Invitational Golf Tournament

The Tournament Committee has scheduled the 23rd Annual GM Invitational for September 25 - 27 this year. The tournament originally scheduled for the second week of June had to be cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Invitations have gone out to other clubs inviting golfers to come during that weekend. As of today  60 golfers have committed to play the tournament. If registration continues we may have to consider limiting the number of golfers.

 

Annual Grande Meadows Club Championship

The Grande Meadows Club Championship will now go the weekend of September 12 and 13. Registration is underway and golfers can register by signing up on the bulletin board at the golf course. Registration fee is $40.00 per golfer and registration deadline is Wednesday September 9.

 

Registration for the Club Championship is going well with over 30 golfers signed up. However, so far we have just 1 lady signed up to play. Hopefully that will change in the next few days as Tracy Blagdon is feeling a little lonely there right now. Come on Ladies – you will enjoy it! Think of it as double your fun on Ladies Night and for 2 days in a row – what a way to finish out the season!!

 

Four Person Best Ball Tournament

The 4 Person Best Ball Tournament on Saturday August 22 was a great succes with a full field of 15 teams participating. At the end of the day 3 teams tied for first place with scores of 62, while another team carded a 63 while 3 others came in at 64. Countback from Hole #18 had to be used to determine the winning team of Matthew Hackett, Jennifer & Josh Moulton and Tyler Kenway.

This week's shoutout goes to our Management team of Bill Lee and Kim Grandy-Baker. In a season that has presented many challenges both Bill and Kim have risen to the occasion to make sure that Grande Meadows ran as smoothly as possible. From the challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic to the challenges presented by a long hot & dry summer, Kim and her staff made sure that the Clubhouse ran smoothly while Bill along with his team of workers has kept the tee decks, greens and fairways in impeccable condition. A big Thank You to you both Bill and Kim!

All the best and stay safe.

Cheers

As well we should give a nod or a hello to the 3 gentlemen working on the JCP Project for their hard work pruning the trees along the course. Kudos to Kevin Myles, Joe Grandy and Kevin Bobbet. Thanks guys for a great job.

 

Congratulations to Roy George Cluett on his well deserved hole-in-one on Hole #7 on Sunday August 8. Roy was playing with his buddy Joe Dunne and Stan McCarthy when he aced the 148 Par 3 using his driver. Way to go Roy George!

Junior Golf & Future Links

Season Finale 2020

Grande Meadows Junior Golf Program was a great success this season thanks to our wonderful group of 35 players who dedicated many hours of practice and hard work. These players were always eager to learn something from their coaches, parents and volunteers. In uncertain times due to Covid-19 we could not have asked for a better year of golf.

The Junior program concluded this past week with the finale tournament on Tuesday & Thursday consisting of 9 hole rounds each day.

Annie McCarthy is the Junior Female Champion for 2020 wiining out over Eva Moulton who finished second while Madalynn Stacey finished in third place.

Kelly Walsh is the 2020 Boys Champion with a close 2 stroke victory over defending champion James Mitchell. Walsh had a 2 day total of 96 while Mitchell came in at 98. Following closely in third place was first year junior golfer Kevin Power who carded a 99. Nicholas Murray and Malcolm Fizzard finished in a tie for 4th with a 111 total.

Carter Evans captured the Boys B Division title with a two day total of 107 while Lucas Higgins finished second with a 119 total and Kurtis Badcock was 3rd with a 124 total.

In the Boys C Division Noah Gallant was the winner while Jared Young finished second with Nygel Young and Billy Evans ending up tied for 3rd.

Future Links

The Future Links program also had a successful year and ran very smoothly thanks to the help of all the participants and their parents. They were a great group of Future Links players who we hope will all become part of the Junior program in the future.

Congratulations to the winners of the Buddy Tournament inlcuding Nash Kelly, Jayden Lambe, Robyn Higgins and Brooke Evans.

A special thanks go out to the Junior Program and Future Links Co-ordinators Eric Evans and Jennifer Matthews for the great effort they put out this summer. Thanks to you both and good luck in your studies.

We have reached the middle of August and summer just keeps on happening. It certainly has been our warmest summer in many years and since there hasn't been much wind there have been lots of great scores posted since the course opened for the 2020 season. Among other things we have had 2 hole-in-ones this year – the first by Bill Hanrahan and the other by Brenda Douglas – both on Hole #3. Let's keep taking advantage of the weather and great course conditions which Grande Meadows has to offer.

This week's shoutout goes to groundskeeper Peter Myles who has been a mainstay at Grande Meadows Golf Course since it's inception. Peter has always done a fantastic job making sure the greens, fairways and rough are in impeccable condition. In addition to his groundskeeping chores Peter is sometimes called upon to do other tasks as well. For instance this past week Peter was called upon to rescue some golf clubs that took an unplanned dip into Hole #6. As usual Peter went that extra mile to make sure the golfer went away happy. Way to go Peter!

 

 

 

All the best and stay safe.

Cheers

The Douglas family has held this tournament as a way for the many family and friends of Randy to come together each year to remember him doing one of his favorite activities – playing golf. Brenda used her driver to make the ace while playing in a group that included her daughter Nancy, Louise Lee, Lucy Dominaux and LeeAnn Bungay. Congratulations Brenda! It was certainly the highlight of the tournament.

 

All the best and stay safe.

Cheers

Barry
