Our Calendar and posts will be updated asap from the directors with input from course contacts  and  for our event schedule.

The Directors are volunteers and we are looking for a new participant / director for support.

We are looking for a Junior Coordinator to assist Colin Overennay of Castlegar for the 2017 season and beyond, contact Don if interested.

More info on each event will be posted , check the BCGA GOOGLE calender and links to all the great courses in the West Kootenay.

I would also like to “encourage” any event or activity the members can make in getting our youth back on the course, make it a mission to play with a young person this year , a relative or any young person interested in the game .

All the best in 2017 on the course and in life.
