For Immediate Release:
FREDERICTON, NB – In accordance with the Golf NB COVID-19 Tournament Protocols, it is with deep regret that Golf NB announces the CANCELLATION of the 2021 NB Ladies Four Ball, presented by Four Rivers Brewing Co. which was scheduled to be held on June 13th at the Gowan Brae Golf & Country Club.
The decision to cancel this event was not taken lightly but given the current restrictions surrounding competitions as outlined in the Provincial Mandatory Order, Golf NB has little choice and believes it is the best course of action at this juncture.
Golf NB strongly supports the efforts of the Province of New Brunswick and its Public Health authorities in making the safety and well-being of New Brunswickers a paramount importance.
Golf NB shares in the disappointment of those affected and thanks our competitors, volunteers, and the Gowan Brae Golf & Country Club for their understanding during this extraordinary time.
Golf NB has and will continue to follow the directives from the Province of New Brunswick as we continue our plans to conduct the remainder of our 2021 championship schedule while balancing the needs of our competitors and host venues to the best of our ability.
If you have any questions, please contact us.
