Golf Equipment Swap Meet - It's spring, and our hopes for a better game are budding like the rhodos. Are you buying new equipment? Do you have a basement full of unloved clubs, bags, range-finders, and golf gear of all descriptions? Well, here's your chance for a little house cleaning:
On April 15, BIGC is holding a swap meet, proceeds to go towards buying children's club sets for rental at the pro shop. Please donate your abandoned (clean, useable, not junk) equipment - and look for that special club or gizmo that you've always wanted, but is no longer in the stores.
The Pro Shop will be accepting equipment only during business hours beginning March 1. Please don't consider this an alternative to Dump Day; Pro Shop staff will accept only things which someone else might want.
Pro shop now open 7 days a week - The pro shop is now open 7 days a week being that winter - hopefully - is behind us. See you at the course!
Island Masters - The 9th annual Island Masters takes place Saturday, April 8th with a 1:30 shotgun start. Format is 9 holes of stroke play.

At the end of your round, your handicapped 9-hole score along with your PGA Tour pro's 18-hole Saturday score will be your total score for our Island Masters Tournament. Members $25, non-members: $45 (includes an appetizer buffet at the Cup Cutter). Please register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 604.947.GOLF(9653).

March Break Jr. Camps - Hi everyone, it is that time of year again and I'm happy to announce there will be a 2017 March Break Golf Camp. I will run one each week for each age group. 5-7 year olds will run from 12-2pm daily Monday-Friday and cost $150. This will run both weeks, the 13-17 and the 20-24. I will see what numbers are like to assure it will run both weeks. If one week seems more popular then I may have to only run it one week, but I hope to see some solid numbers.
Ages 8+ will also run the same dates and be from 9am-12pm and will cost $180. Parents can choose what week works best for their schedules.
I'm excited about this years camps and hope to see some familiar faces, and hopefully many new ones. These camps are a great way for beginners to find out if they enjoy the sport, and a great way for those who participated last year to improve their skills. I offer the basic fundamentals of putting, chipping, and the full swing while also introducing the kids to proper etiquette and some rules of the game. I take pride in providing a safe and positive atmosphere!
Please email at email@example.com to register or if you have any questions.
Thank you and hope to see you all in March,
