FRIDAY ON THE GREEN
Special Interest Group for Golf
The Arrowsmith Golf outing turned out to be “Monday on the Green”. It was a very warm Monday on July 16 but with clear skies and a beautiful view of Mount Arrowsmith, it was a great day for fun golf. There were 14 golfers with four more staying for dinner at Mickey J’s Restaurant. The food was tasty and the beer very cold after three hours on the course.
In August we had a large turnout of PROBUS golfers on Friday, August 17. Even though Fairwinds Golf Club was very busy, Ryner Wilson was able to give us the Monday “Nine & Dine” special pricing on Friday. There were 26 golfers with a total of 29 staying for dinner. There was some excitement on the 18th green while Bonnie Howell was parked in a golf cart on the path above the green. A very large stag casually walked up and proceeded to much on a fir tree bough about three feet from Bonnie for almost a full minute. Bonnie was a trooper and did not move a muscle. Unfortunately, no photos recorded this event. Another great day for good food and bad (for some) golf!
Our golfers return to Pheasant Glen Golf Club on Friday, September 14th. We have eight tee times booked, beginning at 3:04 p.m. The fee is $45.00, which includes nine holes of golf, ½ cart and a three-course meal (including tips) to be ordered off the Nine & Dine menu prior to tee-off. For those joining for dinner only, the regular menu selections and prices apply.
Friday on the Green is now a “Special interest Golf Group”. When you sign up for one event you will be part of the emailing list for all Friday on the Green events for the season and will receive dates and details automatically. The information will also be published in the Club’s eNewsletter and on our Probus website.
