For Immediate Release:
Organizers of the 2019 Argus Audiology New Brunswick Ladies Provincial Championship have planned a tournament that combines top-notch golf and social activities that will be remembered for many years.
Denis Mallet, general manager of the host Golf Pokemouche on the Acadian Peninsula, is eager to show off the 6,000-yard layout and the hospitality of the club’s members when they host 83 of the provinces to female golfers from July 7th through 9th.
“We’ve taken care of every detail and we know the players are going to be happy when they get here,” Mallet said.
“The course is in beautiful shape and the people are ready to show how friendly and welcoming we are in this part of New Brunswick,” he added. “We are famous for our hospitality. It’s going to be a lot of fun and we’re looking forward to seeing the best players come to Pokemouche.”
The course, built on the scenic Pokemouche River, is partially wooded and features narrow fairways, but the biggest challenge is on the greens because of the elevation on several holes, the manager said.
Away from the course, the players will be treated to a lobster feast during the tournament banquet after the first day of play. A pig barbecue will be the highlight after the second round of the 54-hole championship.
Players will also be able to take advantage of a shuttle service between the golf club in Landry Office and their accommodations in nearby Tracadie.
“We want everyone to remember the good golf and the good times they had here,” Mallet said. “It’s a good opportunity to show what we have and why we are proud.
“If they enjoy it, they will come back someday. We know they will say good things about our golf course and our people.”
The top three amateur and top three senior finishers will qualify for national championship tournaments. The Canadian Women’s Amateur Championship is scheduled for July 23-26 at the Red Deer Golf and Country Club in Alberta and the Canadian Women’s Mid-Amateur & Senior Championship is set for August 18-20 at the Osoyoos Golf Club in British Columbia.
This year’s Ladies Provincials also marks the first time it has been sponsored by Argus Audiology.
Bill Eaton, along with business partner and wife Norma and sister Dr. Heidi Eaton, purchased Argus Audiology from his parents in 2013. The company has been proudly serving New Brunswick for more than 40 years and currently owns four clinics in the province.
“It’s a natural partnership to be work with Golf New Brunswick,” said Eaton, adding the company has a five-year agreement with the association.
“New Brunswick is such a picturesque province and there can be no better way to appreciate it than through the game of golf,” he said. “We are proud to help show off this wonderful province. “
Argus Audiology is also the lead sponsor of the Argus Audiology NB Men’s Senior & Mid-Master Championships which will be held July 22-24 at the Aroostook Valley Country Club in Four Falls, the Golf NB Annual Awards Banquet and Silent Auction on October 19 in Fredericton and the 2019 Golf NB Competitive Golf Season.
