Golf event a huge success

Congrats to the Summerland Golf and Country Club on their first ever “welcome back to golf” event held on Sunday, July 15.

Dear Editor:

Congrats to the Summerland Golf and Country Club on their first ever “welcome back to golf” event held on Sunday, July 15.

After a few years of non-golf, we were so impressed by the warm welcome and helpful assistance at the event.  Management, staff, professionals and a group of seasoned mentors worked together to make this happen for, us, basically a bunch of duffers.

This was an event that attracted more than 75 participants to a “welcome back to golf” afternoon — and it was a huge success in every way.

Participants received helpful info and tips on golf, from etiquette to putting to chipping to driving.

We then were able to play a round, accompanied by a mentor for any questions we had.

Somehow those experienced mentors even managed to keep the rain and stormy weather at bay for the outing.

The course was in pristine condition, a beautiful gem surrounded with classic Okanagan scenery.

Every participant was made to feel comfortable, even those of us with some serious rust on what used to be at best a mediocre set of golf skills.

This was more than a one time great outing, this was a genuine display of welcome to those of us out there who for one reason or another just have not been golfing much the last few years.

Thank you Summerland Golf and Country Club.
