It's been a while since anyone has been able to golf with someone outside of their household, but that's about to change. You can head out to the course to play a round with friends beginning on Saturday morning as the province announced new public health orders on Wednesday.
The season was off to a tremendous start at the Gilbert Plains Country Club, but it hasn't been as busy in recent weeks because of current health orders, which allowed golfers to only golf with members of their household.
"It's certainly going to be a welcomed change for all golfers, it's exciting," said Scott McCallum.
With the change to the health orders, tournament season is set to begin. The Country Club will host its very popular Men's Open next Saturday, June 19. Registration for the event is now open, it costs $80, and that includes your round, a meal, and a chance at cash prizes.
A tee-time system will be used this year and you can book your full foursome today by calling 548-3030. Players are asked to arrive at the course no earlier than 10 minutes prior to your tee-time and you're asked to leave immediately following your round, the prize presentation will be done over social media.
"This event always provides a great opportunity to get out with some friends to have some fun," said McCallum. "The course is also in great shape. It hasn't been quite as busy as of late, but we're looking forward to filling up the tee sheet once again."
This event is also open to golfers of all levels. Whether you're a scratch player or you shoot in the 100s, equal payouts are given for each flight.
