Golf Special Interest Group

Monthly golf outings, usually a 9&Dine, are organized by Al MacDonald and Phil Howell.  Sign up at general meetings, by contacting Al or Phil directly or by using the form below.

The NWB Probus Golf Group is preparing to tee off for 2020 in April (now updated to July 2020 – see below).  There are presently 43 members in the Golf Group but new members are welcome. We play 9 holes at a local course once a month followed by dinner, with the last golf date in October.  The 2019 schedule is shown below as an example.

An email will be sent out a few weeks before each monthly golf date and you can sign up for that date if you wish to play.  It is not competitive golfing – we are definitely not scratch golfers- we are just out to have fun.  If you wish to join the NWB Golf Group and be on the mailing list, just click on the link below and provide your name and email address. See you on the links!

NWB Probus Golf outing, Saturday, July 18, 2020

Eight tee times have been booked for Saturday, July 18 at Qualicum Memorial Golf Course for our first golf outing in a long time.  The first tee time is at 2:56 pm and each tee time is 8 minutes thereafter until 3:52 pm, with the cost being $24.00 per player.  You also may take advantage of a $36.50  9 and Dash special that gives you 9 holes and a $16.00 credit at Thalassa Restaurant.

Memorial Golf and Thalassa restaurant, of course, are operating under strict COVID 19 restrictions for everyone’s safety, which means changes to our usual routine.  Players are not to show up for their tee times early, unless they wish to use the driving range or chipping or putting greens, as large groups of people are not permitted.  Players may set up their own foursomes and let Phil Howell know who they wish to play with, which will be accommodated.   Phil will only set up foursomes for players that do not specify their foursome but will assign the tee times to all.

Dining at the Thalassa restaurant will also not be business as usual.  Social distancing is enforced and you will only be allowed to dine with your foursome and not linger in the restaurant until the last foursome arrives. At this point, the restaurant cannot guarantee seating, because with social distancing guidelines the seating capacity is greatly reduced.  If you wish to take advantage of the 9 and Dash, please let Phil know, and Thalassa will make every effort to make sure we have seating as we arrive after our rounds.  There is also a 9 and Dash menu that you can give to the Pro Shop before you tee off, so your meal will be soon ready after you finish your round.

See you on the course!
