The Buddy Holly Dinner/Show/Dance Exceptional

Saturday, May 10, 2014 - The Brockville Country Club hosted the first of their 2014 Summer Series of Dinners, Shows, Dances in the "Granite Hall" Saturday, May 10th. It was a wonderful evening.
Attended by a great crowd of some 220 members and guests, they were treated to a served 3-course meal prepared by Chef Jason and his staff and served by Emily and her staff. A very tasty meal indeed.
Following the meal and introductions by Bob Lacocque, the "Buddy Holly Lives" show was featured. The group, made up of Dave Bull (Buddy), Stuart Pike (J. I. Allison) and Marty Crapper (Joe E. Manldin) played their role exceptionally well in their Buddy Holly music, costumes; even down to a southern accent. So well in fact one person was overheard asking how the BCC were able to attract the group all the way from Texas. Didn't have the heart to say they are from Kingston.
Great show! The dance floor was very busy most of the night and with applause resulting in a well deserved encore. Perhaps we will have them back next year.
The BCC presents a unique venue for Brockville and area with a delicious meal, first class entertainment and dancing, all under one roof. Watch for the Kelli Trottier show coming up in June.

The BCC Opens for Golf Play

Wednesday, May 7, 2014: The Brockville Country Club golf course opened for play Wednesday May 7th. After a particularly hard winter that never seemed to end, the BCC course is finally open. Most courses were late opening this year and many suffered damage; the BCC amongst them. Although open, members and guests will be playing to five (5) temporary greens for a number of weeks while Lawrence and his crew repair the damage to the regular greens.

It is the BCC's 100th anniversary. And the first group to tee off in 2014 for our 100th was made up of John E. Green, Jon Kent  and Bud Steele. It was 92 year old Bud (shown at right), who took the first drive of the year in this our 100th year of operation. Congratulations guys!

Ladies Golf Section Hold Meet & Greet

Wednesday April 23, 2014: The Brockville Country Club Ladies Section held their Meet & Greet, Wednesday, April 23. A great turnout, with 72 lady members and guests taking part. A social hour was held from 5 to 6, then a very nice dinner was served by our BCC staff. Yup, that's our Emily delivering a couple of meals. The ladies were able to sign up for leagues; become members, sign for the promo league. Their slogan for the event was: "Bring a Friend and Join up Together". Great job ladies in promoting our Club.

BCC Member Volunteers Clean Up Golf Course

Saturday, April 26, 2014 - A good contingent of BCC member volunteers, on a cool and drizzly day ventured out on the golf course to help our course staff pick up the many fallen branches and to rake up leaf-laden areas. This is an annual event and contributes considerably to helping spruce up our course. This past year was especially hard on the course. Also considerable tree cutting took place over the winter resulting in additional refuse to be picked up. Many thanks to Mike Paquette  for organizing the day and to all the volunteers who braved to elements to help with the clean-up.
