Paragon Winter Message

Winter Message 2022
As the off season gets underway, the management of the club would like to remind everyone of a few important items that will assist us in taking care of the course as we get through the winter months.
We encourage all to get out for some exercise and walk the links this winter however no playing of the golf course is permitted. We would also ask that you pack out any garbage you may have and leave the property how you found it.
Although we do allow walking the course, we will not be allowing dog walking, as the amount of mess left behind in past years was too great.
Cross country skiing is permitted but we are asking that people avoid going across putting greens. The tracks left behind from skiing will freeze, thus causing damage to our greens, so we are asking that you please be mindful of this.
If you should have any questions, or if you should see anything untoward or that looks improper on your walks, around the course, please feel free to contact us at dave@paragongolf.ca.
We thank you for your understanding and assistance and wish you and your families a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!! Let’s hope for a safe and quick winter, so we can all get golfing again early next spring.

Paragon Golf and Country Club Junior Championship 2022

The Paragon Junior Club Championship was contested on Tuesday, Aug.30th. Although only 9 players signed up for the event, it was acknowledged that all who took part in the tournament had a great time!! A spirited round was played by all, but in the end Hayden Wilkens was crowned champion, with an impressive score of 80. Calder Adams finished runner-up with a total of 97. Abagail Veinot took home the honours as low gross in the Girls division, and Chase Grant was our Under 13 champ. Well done to all who played!! Snacks and refreshments were enjoyed by all of the players after the round, and the prizes were handed out at this time. We would like to say a special thank you to Club Secretary Laura MacMillan for picking up the tab for the food and drinks. Much appreciated!! I would also like to thank the parents and grandparents of the players who showed up and helped out with this special event. Thank you to all of the young players that took part, and stayed tuned for new improvements to the Paragon Junior Development program for 2023. These young players are the future of our Club, and we plan to make their experience here at Paragon a special and rewarding time as they develop as golfers!

Yours sincerely,

Dave MacMillan, GM

Paragon G+CC

 

 

 

Labour Day Results 2022

Labour Day 2 Man Scramble 2022 Results 

 

What a weekend it turned out to be, great weather, great course and a great finish which ended with a playoff hole to determine the champions of the 2022 Labour Day Tournament.  Paragon’s own Tom Banks and Paul Arsenault came out victorious over Steven Spicer and Jamie Welsh of Brightwood, with a birdie finish on the 1st playoff hole. 

Many thanks go to our maintenance staff here at Paragon who worked extremely hard to prepare our beautiful course for the two-day tournament play. 

Our sponsors for the closest to the pins for Saturday and Sunday on all par 3’s, were Oaken Barrell, who also provided our competitors and volunteers with a fantastic meal on Saturday afternoon. The other tournament sponsors were Smokehouse Brewery, Wood Gundy’s Laura MacMillan, Freeman Motors, Fraser’s Home Center, Bruce GM, and Paragon Golf and Country Club. We thank you so much for your generosity, it was greatly appreciated! 

The wonderful volunteers who helped score, register the competitors and various other tasks were Linda Sampson, Brian and Debbie Walker, Jeff and Tracey Coleman, Laura MacMillan, Harry Potter and last but not least Doug Bullerwell the co-chair of the tournament who helped so much getting the tournament ready.  Thank you all so much for your help and time!!! 

And finally, to all the competitors of the 2022 Labour 2 Man Scramble Event we hoped you enjoyed your time here at Paragon and we hope to see you back next year on September 2nd and 3rd for the 2023 Labour Day 2 Man Scramble.

Message to Members: Golf Course Etiquette

Message to Members: Golf Course Etiquette

Fellow members, we sincerely hope your are having a great golf season, and are enjoying the fantastic playing conditions our golf course has been in this year.

We feel it is a good idea to send out a mid-season reminder to all of our members regarding course etiquette, and the little things all golfers can do to assist Paragon`s grounds crew to ensure top-notch playing conditions.

Lately we have noticed an increase in the number of pitch marks on our greens. If left unrepaired these ball marks will likely evolve into a dead spot on the green, which is not only unsightly, but will also remain as an indentation affecting the smoothness of the putting surface. Please take a moment to fix your ball marks on the greens, and repair others left behind.

Also, we would like to remind all to replace their divots in the fairways, and on the tee boxes. If you are using a power cart, another option is to use the sand bottles provided to fill in your divot with sand. Raking foot prints in the bunkers is also an important part of your round. I`m sure everyone can relate to the frustration of hitting a shot into the bunker, only to find your ball has came to rest in foot tracks left behind by an inconsiderate player somewhere ahead of you. Again, please take a moment to rake your footprints, and any others you find in the sand traps. Please leave the rakes inside the bunker when finished, as this will allow the maintenance staff to trim around the bunkers more efficiently.

A few other course etiquette tips include, picking up broken tees and trash on the golf course, observing on-course signage, replacing hazard and yardage stakes and keeping cigarette butts and sunflower seeds off the greens and tees.

All of these on-course practices will not only help the Paragon grounds crew make the golf course beautiful, but will also enhance the playing experience of your fellow members!!

This is a good time to congratulate course Superintendent Adrien VanDyk, and his dedicated team for the wonderful job they have done maintaining our beautiful course this year!!

Adrien has come to Paragon with very high credentials in the turf industry, and we are extremely grateful to have attained his services in leading our turf care program this year, and hopefully for many years to come.

The Paragon maintenance staff consists of Adrien VanDyk(Superintendent), Matt White, Jason Veinotte, Jordan Neable, Bill Eaton, Josh Corbin, Brad Foley, Riley Noble and Gardener Jason Phinney. Please take a moment to say hi to the guys, and please congratulate them for their hard work this year. I think it is safe to say we have never seen Paragon`s greens and fairways in such fine condition as they are this season!!

As always we thank you for your support and assistance as we get through another golf season here at Paragon!!

Sincerely,

The Board of Directors and Management of Paragon Golf & Country Club.
