Our grounds crew managed to get the stump loaded on to the dump truck and removed from the course. All that remains is the ‘ground under repair’ that should be fully cleaned up shortly. Good work guys!

The Jr. Golf DRIVE, CHIP, PUTT Competition was well attended by players, parents and volunteers. Birchbank Jr. Golf would like to thank all the people involved in offering this FREE program, including Dennis & Lance for providing the weekly lessons, Margo & the Bistro staff for the hot dogs & pop at the windup, volunteers Glenn, Fran, & Bud as well as members of the Trail Jr. SmokeEaters who helped run the windup competition, and Ron Wilson for the great photos – a few posted below.
Top score for the girls went to Anika (who also had the longest drive of the day) and top score for the boys went to Max.
Parents wishing to view more photos or wanting copies of the photos should speak to Dennis.
We got through the last series of storms with only minor damage to the course as a whole. Branches and debris but only one tree blown down on the corner of #18 so we were pretty lucky.
In order to support students pursuing post-secondary education, Birchbank Golf has established a scholarship for junior members. This support comes in the form of one scholarship of $2500.
The scholarship has been funded by and named after long time member Howie Fishwick.
The scholarship will be awarded to the person demonstrating dedication and drive in pursuing their post-secondary goals. This scholarship is open to any vocation, not just students in the golf business.
