Birchbank – New look for golf course bistro

The Birchbank Golf Course is fully functional with the opening of the new restaurant, the Birchbank Bistro.

The Birchbank Golf Course is fully functional with the opening of the new restaurant, the Birchbank Bistro, earlier this week offering golfers and non-golfers a tasteful reason to visit.

The Birchbank team welcomed Margo Bradley to the fold as food and beverage manager this year. The wife of head pro Dennis Bradley, Margo has worked in the golf and food industry for a number of years, her most recent a five-year stint at Valley Ridge in Calgary.

“We see each other all day at work,” said Margo. “But it’s good, I mean it’s a golf course it’s fun and everybody enjoys it.”

It’s a way of life for the tandem who winter at a golf course in Arizona before returning to Trail.

Bradley oversees   funtion and organization, but also adds her own touches to the menu that offers a diverse and tempting selection with an extensive breakfast, lunch, and dinner menu.

“We go with what has worked here . . . it is a menu that works for golfers, and for people that want to come out and have a really nice supper,” she added.

The Bistro is open to golfing functions, and available for bookings by private parties.  Bradley encourages the general public to visit and enjoy the scenic vista while sampling the Bistro’s cuisine.

“A lot of it is to get people to realize that everyone can come here to eat, you don’t have to be a member, you don’t have to be golfing, come for lunch in the afternoon, sit on the deck – that kind of thing, it’s just relaxed dining.”

The menu includes light to full breakfasts, with a variety of sandwiches, burgers, wraps, salads and fish and chips featured on the lunch menu. For a truly sumptuous dining experience, the Bistro offers delicacies such as the  Maple Balsamic Salmon, a hearty Rib-Eye Steak, a variety of pasta, and the unique but flavourful Butter Chicken.

The Bistro opens about a half hour before each tee-time and closes after the last round is done.
