After a later start due to Covid-19, Pine Falls Golf Course began the 2020 Season on May 5th. It was an adjustment for golfer’s getting used to new rules that were in place, social distancing, only 1 rider per cart, etc. Despite said restrictions, golfers could not wait to get back out on the course, and it was a very busy year.
Once the Government increased crowd sizes we were able to start holding tournaments in July. Winners of the Alumni Hockey Tournament on July 25th were Guy Borlase, Paul Schram, Dan Coss and Logan Oversby shooting 55. The North Eastern Open was held August 8th, Jason LeRoy took the title with a score of 76, followed by Paul Thomasson, and Dustin Breton with identical 77s in the first flight. The Club Championship, a two day 36-hole tournament, was held on August 29th & August 30th with Geoffrey Bushie Junior being crowned Men’s Club Champion with a score of 153. The Ladies Club Champion was Bonnie Borlase with a score of 178 & Our Junior Club Champion was Chase Pachkowsky with a score of 180. Our Annual 4P tournament on September 5th was a success with the winning team Grant Pachkowsky, Chase Pachkowsky, Dale Ethier, and Will Bruyere shooting 59.
Our weekly Ladies’ and Men’s night events were also very successful. We had fantastic turnouts week in and week out.
Throughout the summer, we also offered Junior’s nights. All Junior’s are welcome to attend on Tuesdays from 3:30 to 5:00pm at no cost. Different coloured tee blocks based on age are set up for the Junior’s to play 4 holes (1, 2, 3 and 9). Hand in your score cards each week for a chance to win weekly prizes. Golf Manitoba came out in July and hosted a Junior Golf Clinic. The Junior’s were able to get some 1 on 1 instruction on the putting green, chipping and driving range, we hope to offer another next season. If you missed coming out this year, keep Tuesdays in mind for next year, seeing more youth using the course is refreshing.
Thanks to the hardworking greens crew the course has looked amazing this year. Our 2020 Season is now over as of October 3rd. We would like to extend our gratitude to all of those who attended our events, came for a round of golf and supported the Pine Falls Golf Club throughout the season. We look forward to having you back next year.
