The Chilliwack Golf and Country Club has been named the 2013 Golf Facility of the Year by the PGA of BC.

CG&CC general manager Bryan Ewart was in Richmond to receive the award Wednesday, joined by CG&CC teaching pro Brad Clapp.

Whenever you have such a strong list of nominees for an award such as this you don’t really know what to expect as to the final outcome,” Ewart said. “Being recognized as the Lower Mainland representative was incredible enough, and to now be recognized for the provincial award is very much an honor.”

As the Lower Mainland nominee, CG&CC went head to head with Bear Mountain Golf Resort (Vancouver Island), Copper Point Golf Club (North Kootenay) and Fairview Mountain Golf Club (Interior).

Three points of criteria were used to select the winner.

Did the course provide a distinguished, impressive and remarkable golf experience to its membership and/or the golfing public?

Did it have a record record of hosting successful golf events and was it regarded as a first-class golf operation?

CG&CC hosted several provincial championships in 2013, including the BC Senior Women’s Championship and the PGA of BC Assistants Championship. CG&CC also held the Chilliwack Men’s Open in July and the Chilliwack Women’s Open in September, two of the longest standing tournaments in the province.

This award is very much a team award and would not have been possible without the dedication of an amazing management and service team here at the club.” Ewart said. “We are very fortunate to have a group of members that have been willing to host some of the most prestigious golf championships in our province over the years.”

Past winners of this award include the Vancouver Golf Club (2012), Shaughnessy Golf and Country Club (2011), Cordova Bay Golf Club (2010) and Fairview Mountain Golf Club (2009).
