Ainsdale Golf Course has been sold to Kincardine native and former U.S. collegiate golfer Taylor Candler (Schmidt) and her husband Charles, a golf pro who is originally from Sanford, Florida. The Candlers, who currently reside in Wichita, Kansas, with their 4 ½ month old son Wyatt, will take over the 18-hole golf course on Jan.
The Bruce Beach Golf Club is well underway for 2015. A group of 12
volunteers under the direction of Brian MacEachern and David Wilson have
built a new shed near the 3rd tee to house the course maintenance equipment
and this replaces the old green shed which had a dirt floor and was barely
standing. We would like to thank all the volunteers for their time and
effort in constructing this fine addition to the Golf Club.
Billy Open Notice 2015
You may be aware that last year we installed three new benches at tees 4, 6 and 7. These were funded by three Beach families who chose their wording and the assembly and installation was done by the BBGC.
This year four more families have requested benches and these will be installed at tees 2, 3, 5 and 9. We already have new benches at tees 1 & 8. That leaves one tee without a new bench and that is the lower tee on #8.
Christopher Johnston, age 39, of Alma, passed away Sunday, November 2, 2014. He was born April 20, 1975 in Southfield, Michigan the son of James and Kathy (Goodenow) Johnston. Chris moved with his family to Alma in 1981 and graduated from Alma High School in 1993. He earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Exercise and Health Science from Alma College in 1998, where he was also a member of the TKE Fraternity.
The Golf Club has undertaken the much needed replacement of the storage shed at the top of the hill as Jim Pennington noted to all in the various meetings this past summer (BBCA, Golf Club and McCosh AGM meetings).
John Lichtenberg’s report concerning the success of the Billy Open
The net donation to club from the Billy Open this year : $1750. We've probably put $13-15k into the course since starting this event . Wasn't - and isn't - the objective of the outing but certainly a nice byproduct.
Thanks to all the participants.
