Brampton, ON – A spectacular day was had as Brampton Golf Club joined a list of honourable golf clubs able to celebrate 100 years of operation. Their 100th anniversary was in 2021, but unfortunately, they couldn’t celebrate together in person due to the pandemic. Thankfully everyone was able to come together today as guests enjoyed food, drinks and live music.
There were 200 people in attendance to witness this memorable event for the club and community. Patrick Brown, Mayor of Brampton, was on hand to speak about this great accomplishment. “When I think of the Brampton Golf Club, I think of the great community events we have had here. There’s so many fundraising and charitable events in this facility,” Brown said. “This isn’t just a place for golf, it’s a place for the community to gather and rally behind great causes.”
“It’s so wonderful to have all of our current and past members coming back, past board members and captains to be able to introduce our hall of fame and induct our first inductees,” said Greg Allworth, President of Brampton Golf Club. Pauline Kelly, Stu Hamilton and Bob Little were the first three inductees into the newly established hall.
“There were many people involved in putting this event together, from the board of directors to our heritage committee, to our staff. Every department head was involved in some way or another,” said Boris Uvakov, General Manager of Brampton Golf Club. “Our food and beverage came through with this beautiful spread of food, and we had great entertainment.”
To finish the day, participants played a shotgun start round of golf. On all the par threes, golfers used clubs from the 1920s to the 1960s.
On behalf of Golf Ontario and our partners at Golf Canada, we congratulate Brampton Golf Club on this milestone and look forward to continued partnership and support for years to come.
