Golfing Season Coming To An End

As the 2020 golf season winds down we can look back on this summer as being one of the nicest summers to play golf at Grande Meadows since its opening 25 years ago. Despite the perils of the Covid-19 pandemic 2020 has turned out to be one of the best seasons for golf at Grande Meadows in many, many years. Grande Meadows saw an increase in the number of people golfing this summer including members and non-members. As well there was a significant increase this summer in the number of student members, junior golfers as well as Future Links golfers enjoying all that Grande Meadows has to offer. That indeed bodes well for the future of our golf course.

Closing Dates For Course & Clubhouse

The Grande Meadows clubhouse will close for the season at the end of the day on Monday October 12. Please note that the course will still be open to members until Sunday November 15. Members are reminded that there will be no bathroom facilities on the course unless someone happens to be in the clubhouse that day. Members will still be able to get their clubs from the Club Storage area through the rear door using the password coded lock. Please lock the door behind you once you are finished getting or storing your clubs.

Annual Fall Fest 2 Person Alternate Ball Tournament

20 teams competed in the annual 18 hole 2 person alternate shot tournament on Sunday October 4. At the end of the day the modified Don MacBeath scoring system was used to determine the winners. The duo of Jeannette Lane and Marilyn Kavanaugh were declared the winners after carding the highest score of 16 on Hole #'s 4 and 13. There was tie for 2nd and 3rd between the team of Art Cluett & granddaughter Rachel Day and Tracy & Mike Blagdon who both tied for the low score of 8 on Holes #4 & 13. A brown bag lunch as well as many prizes including vegetables were presented at the end of the event. Congratulations and thank you to organizers Jeannette & Vic Lundrigan and Marilyn & Stan McCarthy.

Quote from Carl Hill, a Bally Haly golfer

Carl Hill, a Bally Haly golfer who recently attended his 19th GM Invitational sent the following comment in an email a few days after the tournament. In the email he is referring to his friend Jason Halloran who was also here for the 19th year but unable to play due to an illness. Jason does love coming down and hanging out with the guys for the weekend.

The best moment I had the weekend was on Saturday when I came in and the ladies told me they got Jason from the range and bandaged him up.

We as players have our fun, tell stories and jokes and cuss at the little round ball. However, the last couple of years your staff have gone over and beyond taking care of Jason , while we embarrass ourselves on the green grass.

Their compassion and kindness will not be forgotten. The world we live in today would be a better place if such humanity was shown more often. You are lucky to have them. They are caring and classy people.

 

Remainder of 2020 Season Special

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 Champions

Congratulations to all tournament champions throughout the summer and to all those who came out to participate. The winners included Men's Club Champion Sam Warren, Ladies Club Champion Tracy Keeping, Junior Men's Champion Kelly Walsh and Junior Ladies Champion Annie McCarthy. As well congratulations to Burin Peninsula Open Men's Champion and GM Invitational Champion Matthew Hackett, Burin Peninsula Open Ladies Champion Rachel Day and Match Play winner Barry Stacey.

This week's shoutout goes to Jeannette Lundrigan, a longtime community volunteer from Lewin's Cove who is very actively involved in helping others including St. Patrick's Parish Burin, family aid and seniors in her area. Jeannette is always willing to lend a hand. Two years ago she volunteered her talents, skills and hard work to the Board of Directors at Grande Meadows. In that time she has worked tirelessly behind the scenes on many aspects of the golf course including human resources and applications for funding on behalf of GM. She is very committed and efficient and if she volunteers to do something you know it will be done. Her work experience allows her to bring a calming presence to the BOD where she thinks things out very carefully and doesn't jump to conclusions. Tied in with that she loves her game of golf and does everything in her power to promote ladies golf including organizing the very popular Ladies Night every Monday and the equally popular Fall Fest Golf Tournament in October. She is so efficient that she even brought her own little rake to smooth out the bunker every time she or someone else goes in one. And to top it all off she brings cookies and muffins to every Board Meeting. The members at Grande Meadows owe you a great big Thank You for all you do.

Many thanks to all of you who passed along a word or two to me about the weekly update. I began this with the BOD approval as a way to keep members updated during the early days of the Covid pandemic and with the many positive comments coming from many of you I decided to keep it going throughout the summer. Hopefully someone will do it again next year. I appreciate all you do for the good of the course. Have a great off season and hopefully all of us will be here again next year.

 

All the best and stay safe.

Cheers

Barry

This week's shoutout goes to long time Grande Meadows volunteers Clayton & Marjorie Welsh and Keith & Gertie Howse. Both couples have been stalwart volunteers around Grande Meadows for years now. This past month have been indicative of the things they have been doing unnoticed for many years. During the annual Club Championship and the 23rd Invitational held during September both couples were volunteering at many tasks throughout both weekends. They did a fantastic job of posting scores for both tournaments, making sure golfers got off the first tee on time, spotting on Hole #3 for the Hole-in-one contest, picking balls on the driving range, cleaning around the clubhouse as well as many more tasks. They did this all with a smile on their face and all golfers of Grande Meadows should be appreciative of their efforts. A very big Thank You to all four of you.

 

 

 

 

 

All the best and stay safe.

Cheers

Barry
