Family wins Fairwinds family day clubs
Fairwinds Golf Club would like to congratulate Diana Geiger of Parksville, winner of the junior set of TaylorMade golf clubs ($299 value) from Fairwinds family golf nights.
Geiger brought her two sons, Justin, 10, and Christian, 13, out to play at Fairwinds on one of the family golf nights. “What a great concept – the family golf nights,” she said. “The best part was that we were surrounded by other families and everyone was patient.”
She was very pleased that Fairwinds offered a welcoming environment for kids and couldn’t believe how friendly the staff was. “The staff treated the kids wonderfully.” And the kids were pleased that they were able to ride in the golf carts.
When Fairwinds asked Diana if the kids would be sharing the clubs, she laughed, “unfortunately, one is right-handed and the other is left-handed.” Right-handed Christian is growing out of his current clubs, so he will take the new set. Justin didn’t complain, especially when his brother gave him the hat that came with the clubs.
The family nights encourage families and juniors to take up golf while creating memories on the course. “This is the perfect opportunity for parents to spend some quality time with their children and teach them the values of patience, courtesy and course etiquette,” said Ward Stouffer, director of golf operations.
Fairwinds Golf Club is hosting family golf nights every Friday, Saturday and Sunday evenings after 5 p.m. through September. Kids golf and eat free (from the kids menu) when accompanied by a paying adult. Adults are $33 with two juniors, club rentals and golf carts not included.
