The 19th Hole


The season kicked off at the Morrisburg Golf Course last week with the first of the season-long men’s and ladies’ nights.

Although it has been a cold spring, the course has dried up reasonably well. Unfortunately, in keeping with tradition, the Wednesday night ladies event experienced some rain while the men saw somewhat drier conditions on Thursday.

The women had a good turnout last Wednesday with about 40 on hand, although only about half were able to hit the links for a little action. Prizes for the night were drawn from the hat.

Club captain, Monique Patenaude reports the ladies did have fun as they experienced a garage sale/silent auction/live auction event for the items that have been in the ladies coffers for many years. 

Ladies night play resumes tonight, Wednesday, May 1st. The evening is sponsored by Aikman Trailer Sales.

The opening men’s night was sponsored by Riley’s Valu-mart and had about 40 golfers out. The evening format was a scramble. The Lee Beaupre team won with a 31. Closest to the pin winners were Ron Lapier on the par three fifth hole and Lee Beaupre on the par three eighth.

Members can watch for upcoming events to be posted. 

For information on the club, perspective members are invited please drop by the clubhouse and talk to any members of the board or the staff there. 

This year’s president is Jason Broad and Andy and Monique Patenaude are the men’s and ladies captains. They will be happy to discuss club memberships with interested golfers.

The Club runs a junior program which kicks off later this month and a number of events are listed on the calendar.
