The Côte Saint-Luc Department of Parks and Recreation is tee’d up to be offering a fun day on the back nine of Meadowbrook Golf Club and picnic lunch in the Ashkelon Gardens on August 11, 2021.
While we all look forward to resuming the traditional Côte Saint-Luc Golf Classic in the summer of 2022, we are excited to offer a fun, informal day on the links. As chair of the event, I am pleased to announce that golfers will be invited to participate in Tee’d Off At COVID: The 19th Hole. This will include nine holes of golf “Vegas Style” beginning at 7:30 a.m. The fun will continue with a boxed lunch gathering at the Ashkelon Gardens behind the Eleanor London Public Library (5851 Cavendish). In the case of rain, the event will be rescheduled for the following day, August 12.
While we are not quite ready to resume the format of our traditional Golf Classic, I am glad we have found a way to return to the links at Meadowbrook. We hope that a year from now conditions will return to normal and we can carry on with our banquet and honour longtime Parks and Recreation Department stalwart Harold Cammy as per our original plan for 2020.
“The Golf Classic has always been a wonderful opportunity for us to enjoy our amazing greenspace, the treasured Meadowbrook Golf course as we meet for a fun day of sport and camaraderie,” Mayor Mitchell Brownstein said.
I would like to personally thank our newest employee at Parks and Recreation, the uber-talented Anisa Cameron, for spearheading this initiative under the guidance of Cornelia Ziga and Ryan Nemeroff.
Registration opened July 20 at the Aquatics and Community Centre, 5794 Ave. Parkhaven, at 9 a.m. Starting times for the nine-hole course are from 7:30 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. and space is limited. We encourage people to register as soon as possible. The cost to register is $40 (tax included).
