125 join new golf fanatics and travel club

If they aren’t busy enough with a very involved Canyon Lake Newbies and Social Club they founded a year ago, Bradley and Jonda Morton are starting over. This time they launched the new Canyon Lake Golf Fanatics and Travel Club. The new club already has 125 members.

The club was created to provide club members with the opportunity to meet some of their neighbours, make new friends and improve their golf game or, for some, learn to play for the very first time. .

To launch the new club, the group gathered for breakfast at Canyon Lake Country Club, then headed to the golf course for group golf lessons.

Bradley said the motivation behind the new Golf Fanatics and Travel Club stems from a trip to Europe he and Jonda recently took. Bradley says he was lucky enough to play at the St. Andrews Royal and Ancient Golf Club in Scotland.

Erin Adams-Halfon and Mark Halfon practice their putting skills at the first event hosted by the new Canyon Lake Golf Fanatics and Travel Club at Canyon Lake Golf Course.

At the golf course in Scotland, he was paired with three older gentlemen from Alabama who Bradley said had great camaraderie after playing for years together. Bradley was inspired by them and set a new life goal for himself by creating that kind of camaraderie and friendship with other golf buddies.

Next time he is in Scotland, Bradley said he wants it to be with a group of golf enthusiasts from Canyon Lake. A goal was set in motion and the new group was formed.

Erin Adams-Halfon and her husband Mark Halfon said they love finding new groups and clubs on Canyon Lake’s various Facebook pages. They found the Golf Fanatics Club on one of the pages and she and Mark were thrilled to join.

Erin said she has a list of things she wants to do in her own Canyon Lake community and learning to golf is just one of them. Joining this group gave her and her husband the opportunity to meet more people and learn golf.

Seven-year-old Sky Varzarschi and her parents Sandy and Brian Witzel practice together on the greens of Canyon Lake Golf Course. The family decided to join the Canyon Lake Golf Fanatics and Travel Club to learn more about the sport.

Seven-year-old Sky Varzarschi went out with her parents Sandy and Brian Witzel to learn how to play golf. Sandy said her son Sky wanted to try it all and excel at it all. The new club was a perfect fit for their small family, she said.

The club is multi-faceted, Bradley said. One of its goals is to give Canyon Lake golfers a chance to meet and socialize with each other. With that in mind, the band already plans to travel to Southern California once a quarter.

At the end of October, the club plans to travel to Indian Wells Golf Resort to play the famous celebrity course there. Once a year, the group plans to travel outside of Southern California to areas such as Pebble Beach, Bandon Dunes, Scottsdale, Las Vegas and even Cabo San Lucas in Mexico.

The ultimate goal is to bond with each other, much like the three older gentlemen who inspired Bradley to form this band, and to travel to Scotland and play St. Andrews as Canyon friends. Lake.

“The only requirements to join,” Bradley said, “are, you must have a welcoming good neighbor spirit, a passion for golf and travel and a willingness to make lifelong friends.”
