Borden Golf Club opened at the end of April, teeing off the 2022 golf season with a ceremonial first swing by Base Commander, Colonel Daniel Rivière. Base Chief Petty Officer 1st Class, Todd Jones, Commanding Officer Administration Services LCol Steve Brown, Admin Branch RSM CWO Luc Lamontagne and Wendy Miller, Deputy Manager of PSP were in attendance for the official opening.
“It’s a perfect outlet for people to get together in a safe manner,” said Col Rivière, adding that there is a lot of pride in the picturesque golf course and the team that takes such good care of it, as well as the growing membership of military and civilian golfers. “I saw last year many students and staff coming here and just switch off.”
Golfers of all ages and skill levels can choose to play 9 or 18 holes and can make use of the course driving range and two practice putting greens, with rental clubs also available. With reasonable rates and scenic views, it’s one of the best-kept secrets in Simcoe County.
“I think it’s hard enough so that you can bring a diverse crowd that will enjoy playing [the course],” Col Rivière said.
The club restaurant is open seven days a week with dine-in and take-out options available, and breakfast offered Friday, Saturday and Sunday starting at 0800 hrs. Special menus are also offered for select special occasions like the recent Good Friday fish & chips special and Mother’s Day buffet.
