And of course the Chocolate Lovers Dessert Buffet was a huge draw to top off the scrumptious Brunch.
Golf Academy: While Brunch progressed in the Main Dining and Boardroom areas, members of the BCC Golf Academy were just below in the golf lounge hitting balls and taking a lesson from Derek. The Academy has been a great addition to the BCC giving our golfing members the opportunity to tune their game over the winter months.
Zone 2 PlayDowns: And if that was not enough, while all the above was going on, the BCC was hosting the Canada Gold Whisky Senior Mixed AND John Shay Insurance Mixed Zone 2 PlayDowns on sheets 3 to 6. Teams from Rideau, Prescott and Brockville participated with the top 2 from each divison advancing to the Regionals in Carlton Place. From there successful teams go to the Provincials the beginning of April. Congratulations to Matt Hone, Zone 2 OCA Representative and BCC member for orchestrating the event. Matt advises that next year, the BCC will actually be hosting the Provincials. Wow!
A busy Sunday Feb the 13th which demonstrates the many activities available to members; not just during the summer or winter, but all year round. Yes, membership in the BCC is a great value proposition!
