The Birchbank Golf and Country Club awarded its annual scholarships last week to two of the Club’s best young golfers.

Club pro Dennis Bradley presented Tyler McKay and Brenan Moroney each with a $2,500 scholarship to continue their studies. McKay and Moroney are both entering their Freshman year, McKay at Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Missouri; Moroney at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops.

The scholarship considers applicants demonstrating dedication and drive in pursuing their post-secondary goals.

Eligible recipients must be a junior member at the Birchbank Golf Course and be enrolled in a post-secondary institution. In addition, the applicant must write a short essay and answer questions relevant to merit.

The scholarship is unique to Birchbank and, with the generous fund intact and managed by the LeRoi Foundation, will be a legacy for many years to come.
