September 2020 has been a memorable and monumental month. Just as we were getting used to the COVID-19 way of life, the wildfires roared within Oregon. Beginning in the first week of September, the wind fanned wildfires throughout our state creating hazardous air quality. We had a week of smoke that required BGC to close our course. Outdoors work was stopped. We were forced to postpone the “one and only” Corona Classic. Boo-Hoo. Thanks to Barb Gahr, Cindi Eielson, Emily, Moff, Drew and Jeff, it was rescheduled to Oct.3. That was fantastic news to us all.
The Corona Classic Member-Guest tournament was a great success. Super weather, no smoke , and playing a fun event with friends made us all very grateful and happy.
We were sorry to say goodbye to Emily Anderson, BGC Head Golf Pro, who resigned as of, Sept. 14. She was a great leader to BGC and the LGA for the very trying past year. We thank her for going above and beyond her regular duties to keep us safe and golfing during COVID-19. We wish her well in the future.
