Robert "Bob" Braun

It is with profound sadness that we report the passing of Robert "Bob" Braun, a member of Whitevale since 1987. Our thoughts and prayers are with Ingrid and her family during this difficult time.

BRAUN, Robert "Bob" July 26, 1928 - May 12, 2018 It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Bob. A wonderful and adored husband to wife, Ingrid for over 70 years. A beloved father to daughter, Elke and son, Robert. Granddaughters Elana and Ashley, great-grandfather to Phoenix. Bob will be missed by his family and friends. Bob and his young family came to Canada in 1954 where he started a construction company. His ardent devotion and love of golf took Bob and his wife to their house in Florida in the wintertime for 6 months of the year for over 25 years. They were also longstanding members at Whitevale Golf Club. Life was good! He will be missed. At Bob's request cremation has taken place with no service to follow.

Hole 15 & 16 - Rules Update

As the construction starts up again after a long winter, the characteristics of holes 15 & 16 have changed as most of you have seen. Prior to construction, the area surrounding the maintenance facility has been marked Out of Bounds. With the changes, that same rule will be in place moving forward for those two holes. The Out of Bounds markings are now in place and will be in place until the project has been completed. Over the next few weeks the left side of 15 & 16 will get shaped and start to look more like the final product. We appreciate you patience and look forward to seeing you on the course!
