Alice Hosts Club Open

A kickoff to the golf season took place at the Port Alice Golf Club

The 2015 golf season kicked off officially at the Port Alice Golf Club this weekend. Port Alice Golf & Country Club is a challenging nine-hole municipal golf course located at the south end of Port Alice at the end of Marine Drive. It was established and built in 1927. The course features a selection of small creeks, very tight greens and some ponds intermixed through the trees.

Due to the Neucel Pulp Mill shutdown, numbers were down at this year’s event with a total of 17 golfers taking part.
