Grande Meadows set to open for the season
Grand Meadows Golf Course in Frenchman’s Cove opens to the public for 2014 season Thursday and will begin taking tee times today. The course opened for members only Friday morning. Grande Meadows will host the 17th Men’s Invitational Golf Tournament June 6-8.
The club is hoping as many former participants as possible will make a special effort to take part.
Friday, June 6 will be reserved for an 18-hole practice round. The tournament will consist of two 18-hole rounds on Saturday, June 7 and Sunday, June 8. Players will be divided into three divisions based on handicap.
The Frenchman’s Cove course will also play host to Golf Newfoundland Labrador’s 2014 Adult Championships this year from July 3-6.
Clovelly in St. John’s will host the junior championship from July 7-10.
Over the winter, the Competitions Committee was busy putting plans in place to enhance the competitions. For 2014, players will see a number of changes, including divisional play with net prizes, a number of prize draws, fun competitions and the crowning of the provincial champions in the various divisions.
Online registration for both the adult and junior competitions opened May 5 with the deadline for adults July 1 and the junior July 4.
