NORTH BATTLEFORD — The North Battleford Golf and Country Club is open! After a long winter, golfers are anxious to get out to play a round at the beautiful park-like setting and women in the Battlefords and surrounding area are ready to have some fun.
Sponsors have been found and a schedule is ready to make Tuesdays Ladies’ Nights at the NBGCC. There will be two sponsor nights a month and the other Tuesdays are known as Toonie Tuesdays.
There will usually be two sponsors each sponsor night and this means over $600 in prizes given out, just for playing nine holes. Many Tuesday nights will have themes such as Mexican Fiesta, Ukrainian Night and Support Ronald McDonald House.
Here’s how it works. On sponsors nights, there is a shotgun start, usually at 5 pm. Golfing is cheap, too, with green fees for nine holes costing $22 and a seat on a cart for another $11. Supper is optional and usually a choice of two entrees such as a full meal like chicken cordon bleu for $23 and a lighter selection such as a chicken pecan salad for less. Call the pro shop to enter your group of up to four or yourself to join others. It’s important to sign up ahead of time so teams can be assigned a starting hole and the kitchen knows how much food to prepare.
Tuesday evenings without a sponsor are called Toonie Tuesdays. It costs $2 to enter and possible games are count your putts, high and low hidden holes and bingo. These evenings, golfers need to make their own tee time as there is not a shotgun start. Prizes given out are much appreciated drink tickets.
Once again, the pro shop staff is ready to take your booking at 306-937-5653 and maybe get you into a new outfit. There are many brands of women’s golf attire available such as Sunice, Levelwear, Nancy Lopez and Antigua.
Opening night is Tuesday, May 24, with cocktails beginning at 5:30 p.m., dinner at 6:30, followed by a fashion show of the newest golfing styles. There will be door prizes and a basket raffle. Why not spend an evening at NBGCC for a mere $56 (golfing and supper).
Women of the Battlefords and surrounding areas, come join us Tuesdays at the North Battleford Golf and Country Club for some exercise, laughs and camaraderie! New golfers are always welcome. Hope to see you soon!
