Birchbank Retirees Championship

Brad Harding wins Birchbank Retirees Championship Tournament

The 2019 Birchbank Retirees season officially ended with their Championship Tournament. Fifty-two players along with Birchbank GC Director of Golf, Jeff Papilion teed it up to crown this year’s Club Champions. Despite heavy rains earlier in the week, the course was in excellent shape thanks to the work of our course workers and Course Superintendent. At the completion of play, the players sat down for a great fried chicken meal put on by the Bistro staff and some great company with the other members of the Retirees Club.
