Annual Meeting. Short and sweet, always a pleasure!
What a great turn out for our July 3rd game and annual luncheon meeting. A big thank you to member Darlene Paterson who hosted this years annual meeting and luncheon at her cabin on Falcon Lake, as well as to our social committee for preparing an awesome meal for all those who attended.
Our president Susan Stanley kept it short, as did our secretary, treasurer and sports captain when submitting their reports. In a nutshell our secretary announced that direct emails are going to be eventually eliminated and all future communications will be though this website. Also, our sports captains now have the ringer board, chip-in and birdie sheets up and running on the website under tee times—sign up sheets.
A warm welcome to our 8 new members this year—don’t forget to join us in the club house for a bevy and a bite after our games!
In other news…
Our first official summer game was played on a pristine course as the club had it groomed to perfection for the Provincial 2018 Men’s Mid Amateur & Women’s Amateur Championships slated to begin right behind us. It was a three-day event that attracted the top Manitoba amateur players from around the province. While a few of our members generously volunteered their time at the event, our very own member Brenda Cleverly competed in the competition! Congratulations Brenda for proudly representing us here at Falcon Lake.
New Club House is a hit!
While everyone is clearly proud of the new club house as pictures of the beautiful building have been widely circulating everywhere on social media, perhaps the time is right to say an official good-bye to the old facility (remember me?). This little building, along with the pro shop next to it, faithfully served as the hub for the Falcon Lake Golf Course for 60 years.
In celebration of 60 years, I found this quote in an article written in OntarioGolf.com describing the early years of Falcon Lake Golf Course. Click on the link, it’s worth a read!
“Built by the hard-working hands of men from all over the area, the Falcon Lake course was no easy task to create. After much rock blasting, bulldozing, hauling in soil, and shaping this relentlessly difficult plot of land, the golf course was molded to its final form in 1955.”
