Alberni Golf Club kicks off with men’s club play

Get ready to start another season of Men’s Club action at the Alberni Golf Club

Welcome back gentlemen; get ready to start another season of Men’s Club action at the Alberni Golf Club. Everything is in place for what promises to be a great golfing season.

We have 10 special events. Thanks to the generosity of our many sponsors it should translate into more fun with bigger and better prizes. There will also be  some extra draws for those of us who aren’t good enough or lucky enough to win a golf prize. The cost for membership into the Men’s Club is $20 for the year.

The Alberni Auto Works Club Championship will be medal play this year, with Club Captain Steve Acland running the show. The championship will be held on one weekend, Saturday, July 26 and Sunday, July 27. There will also be a net competition that weekend. Make your plans now to play both days.

Sunday, March 30 starts off with the R.J. Duncan Accountant four man best ball. Count the best net and the best gross on each hole. Please make up your own group or enter as a single and head pro Bruce MacDonald or Brian Rands will place you on a team.

Please register by noon on the Saturday before each event. As it is fairly early in the season, the shotgun start will be at 9 a.m. with a short meeting prior. Try to be there at least by 8:30 a.m. The usual fee of $10 applies, as it does for all Men’s Club events.

Every Sunday without fail there will be money pots up for grabs, along with four closest to the pins, with one of them being the Charity Closest to the pin.

Your Men’s Club players committee  for this season are Club Captain Steve Acland, Assistant Captain Craig Acland, Handi-Cap Chairman Keith Gauthier. Money pot and pari-mutuels Doug Richmond,  Draws Bruce MacDonald and Brian Rands and Sponsors Gerry Fagan.
