By transitioning to a private, member-only facility, Fox Creek will offer faster rounds, better conditions and community-like approach for avid golfers in Southeastern New Brunswick.
Matchplay Golf | Dieppe, NB— Fox Creek Golf Club, the top-ranked golf facility in the Dieppe and Moncton area is becoming a private, member-only facility for the 2021 season.
“Since it opened in 2005, Fox Creek has been regarded as the best golfing option in our region, and that’s something we’re very proud of,” said Dennis LeBlanc, President of Fox Creek. “With the increased demand for golf during the pandemic, we felt the time was appropriate to transition Fox Creek into a member club that would offer easier access to the tee, enhanced conditions that come with a private club, and a member-only lounge in the clubhouse.”
While most courses in the region are open to the public golfer, members at those clubs compete with daily fee players for access to the tee, and crowded courses provide slower rounds and diminished conditions. By going private, Fox Creek will be limited to member-only play, with no public access and very limited outside events, allowing pace of play to be faster and offer improved conditions. Members at Fox Creek will be part of a community of golfers who celebrate the best the game has to offer. Members at the club will also have access to the club’s practice facility and instruction under Louis Melanson, who is a multiple winner of the Atlantic PGA of Canada Coach of the Year award, as well as his team of PGA of Canada Professionals. St. James Gate, the club’s award-winning restaurant, will remain open for public access.
“We’ve had a great group of golfers at Fox Creek for years, but making the club a members-only facility will really enhance the experience for those playing the course,” says Melanson, the club’s General Manager. “The offering of a new lounge and bar for members, plus having ready access to a top course and practice facility will really make this attractive to golfers who are looking for an alternative.”
Fox Creek has already had significant interest in its membership model, which is expected to be limited to 360 members.
“Our member model will create a community of Fox Creek members, but will allow them access to the tee, and the ability to practice and use the clubhouse at their discretion,” says LeBlanc. “We think this is an exciting opportunity for golfers in Dieppe and Moncton, and are excited to welcome members to the club in coming weeks.”
