BCC Golf Course Set to Open

The Brockville Country Club is set to open for golf.
April 7th is the Target Opening Date.
That's right! April 7th will be one of the earliest starts to our golf season ever! The fall-back date is April 14th, 2010. But given the weather forecast, the 7th looks good. The course has wintered very well and Lawrence and crew are working hard to get the course ready for play. So shake out the mothballs and join us for play at the BCC. Green-fee players welcome, and with a spring green-fee rate (to May14) of just $39.00 + tax for 18 holes, it's a great opportunity to play the BCC.

BCC at Toronto Outdoor Show

The Brockville Country Club was represented at the recent Toronto Outdoor Show.
Brockville's Tourism Office made the arrangements, travelled, set up and "manned" the show. The BCC was one on ten (10) organizations represented in the Brockville booth. Good attendance was reported. Jack Kenny dropped in to check our display on his way to Owen Sound.
