2016 BCC Summer Series Ready to Go!

The Brockville Country Club's Summer Series of Dinner/Show/Dances held in the Granite Hall each of the past 4 summers has been a great success. AND the 2016 version of the Summer Series is sure to please.
Four dinner/show/dances are now booked for this 2016 season. Two of the shows are encore presentations. The Summer Series will open with Feddy Vette and The Flames, the very popular 50's and 60's Rock & Roll band from Belleville. The series will close with The British Invasion from Toronto who put on a great performance last year and are sure to be a super closing act this year.
In between, we have two new shows for BCC's Summer Series. With patrons asking for a little Country Music, we are bringing in The Sons of Perry from Owen Sound. The evening will start a little later and have platters of food delivered to each table after the first set, rather than a full served meal beforehand.
The fourth show will feature The Toronto All-Star Big Band. This travelling band will feature some 26 talented youth (ages from 16 to 22) playing and singing many of the big band era music. This will be an exciting show and like all our shows, great to dance to.

Support your Brockville Country Club and come partake of one or all of BCC's Summer Series of Dinner/Show/Dances this summer. Call the BCC office TODAY and book your seats. A BCC Member 4-show discount pack available. A great Meal; Live Entertainment; Dancing; Bar Service; a Complete Night Out ... all at One Location Under One Roof. Come join the fun this season!

Great Turnout for BCC "Swing & Sweep"

Saturday October, 17, 2015:  The Brockville Country Club held its "Swing and Sweep" on Saturday with 20 teams (80 participants) taking part. Each team curled two 4-ender games on the BCC's fine 6-sheet curling rink. Yup, the compressor pump has been repaired and curling is under way. Teams from Brockville, Kemptville and Ottawa participated.
Following lunch, everyone headed to their golf carts and the golf course for a shotgun start and 9 holes of golf. The course was in great shape. The weather was fair, but not ideal so everyone just bundled up.
Following golf, it was back to the bar, then dinner was served in the golf lounge as a wedding reception was going on upstairs in the main dining room at the same time (hats off to our staff!!). Then it was time for the prizes. First, 2nd and 3rd team prizes were awarded, then a bunch of draw prizes. It was a tie for the win, so the teams of Matt Hone, Kevin Cook, Shawn Pyke and Cory Burns split the sum of 1st & 2nd golf shop sweeps with the team of Jon O'Reilly, Mike O'Reilly, Cole Spicer and Matt Rankin.
You can figure out who-is-who in the photo. Congratulations to organizers Jonathan O'Reilly (red jacket) and Mark Peacock (back left clapping) for running a great 2015 "Swing & Sweep" and to BCC staff for ensuring everything came off right on schedule.

BCC Men's Closing Golf Tournament Held in Ideal Weather

September 26, 2015: It may be late September, but it was sunny and warm for the BCC Men's Closing Tournament and the course was in great shape. Over 70 players participated in a 2-person modified Ryder Club format. The 1st six holes were played as a Best Ball from the RED tees; holes 7 to 12 were a modified Alternate Shot from the YELLOW tees and the final 6 holes (13 to 18) were a Scramble from the WHITE tees. Following play, members were treated to a spaghetti & meatball dinner with Caesar salad and garlic bread prepared by BCC's kitchen staff and served by Emile & her staff (And simultaneously, the BCC staff were hosting a wedding with ceremony outside beside #18 green and dinner in the main dining room - great job gang!).
Overall Men's Closing winners were Dave Dargie and Mark Peacock (Dave scampers as Mark is seen receiving golf bag prize from organizers Kris Gregoire an Mike Paquette in background). Many other prizes were given out as draw prizes for those in attendance.
Sunday is the BCC Ladies Closing and the weather is again forecast to be ideal.
Forecasts are for great weather deep into the fall and the Brockville Country Club will remain open until weather dictates otherwise.
The BCC Swing & Sweep is scheduled for Saturday, October 17, so get your teams booked for what will be a fun day.

Byan Sevigny Wins the Flagstick BCC Open

The third round of the BMG Cup Series was held at the Brockville Country Club, Saturday & Sunday, September 12 - 13, 2015. The weather was not favourable as Saturday was cool and saw a steady rain throughout the day. Sunday was much better but had to be delayed about 1 hour to allow a few pins to be changed and to get some water out of the bunkers. The players are used to varying weather, however, and didn't let it greatly affect their play.
In the end, Bryan Sevigny of Ottawa backed up his opening round of 69 with a one over par 73 to win the Stanley Thompson Flagstick BCC Open championship trophy by 5 strokes over Prescott's Phil Patterson. With two day totals of 149, Dwight Reinhart and Taylor Collins finished tied for third place.

Other flight winners were Phil Patterson (A); Mark Peacock (B); Brian Harper (C) and Glenn Caird (Senior). Mark and Brian are, of course, BCC members.
Flagstick Golf Magazine Publisher and President Jeff Bauder thanked all players who stuck it out in trying conditions and all staff at the BCC for presenting a great course to play and for their service as he awarded the prizes from sponsor NIKE Golf.
The Flagstick BCC Open is the third of the BMG Cup Series. The first was held at Smugglers and the second held at eQuinelle. The overall BMG Cup Series Player of the Year is Dwight Reinhart (3975 points) followed by Ryan Sevigny (3750) and Noah Steele (3075).
Congratulations all for another great Flagstick BCC Open event.

Organizers Jubliant at Friends of Palliative Care Golf Tournament Success

The Brockville Country Club was again the scene of the annual Friends of Palliative Care Golf Tournament, Wednesday, Spetember 2, 2015. And what an event this 22nd annual was! Some 260 golfers participated split over morning and afternoon draws. BCC then hosted a served 3-course meal in the "Granite Hall" to over 300 attendees.
Over the past 21 years, the tournament hosted by the BCC has raised over 2.2 million for palliative care. The goal this year was to raise over $200,000. But they also had a specific need and that was the replacement of special hospital beds at a cost of $23,500 each. When this became know, City councillor, Jeff Earle, made a donation of $100,000. Then just as the organizers were ready to announce their fund raising total, Donald Green Jr. on behalf of the Don & Shirley Green Family Charitable Foundation announced that the family would match everything raised that day. The total funds raised then became $649,000. The organizers were just blown away! (Photo below by the Recorder & Times).
The organizers with more than 65 volunteers need to be commended for their great effort in support of such a worthy cause. But all Brockville Country Club staff also need to be commended. The golf course was in great shape and the golf event ran very smoothly, even when given such a large field. The Granite Hall was set up to handle the huge crowd and the meal prepared and served by our BCC staff was superb. CONGRATULATIONS to everyone for a great day for a great cause.

"Monday Night Strippers" Active at the Brockville Country Club

The Brockville Country Club has a feature not found on many golf courses. Rock out-croppings exist that give the course a special flavour. Over the many years, however, many of these rock formations have become covered with moss and grass.
Enter The Monday Night Strippers!!
Lead by Mike Paquette (pictured in photo below), member volunteers have been meeting on Monday evenings to strip the rock faces of grass coverings. At this stage, Mike has often been on his own and would like company. After all, stripping by oneself is not so much fun!
Monday September 7th is Labour Day, so no stripping that evening. But each Monday following, starting at 6:00 PM, Mike will be busy enhancing our golf course. So how be we give Mike a hand. An hour or so a week would be a big help. Join "The Monday Night Strippers" and contribute in making our Brockville Country Club even more of a special place!! Congratulations Mike in this great initiative.
