Beach Grove Golf & Country Club to host the Ontario Mixed Curling Championship

Beach Grove Golf & Country Club, one of Ontario’s only waterfront Country Clubs and Southwestern Ontario’s premier private Golf and Country Club turned 100 years old in 2021! The Club agreed that one of the best ways to commemorate its 100th Anniversary was to host the prestigious Ontario Mixed Curling Championship, October 14 – October 17, 2021.

The Championship welcomes 8 teams from across the province who will compete to be the Ontario Mixed Curling Champions and represent the province at the National Playdown later this year. Some of Ontario’s most talented curlers will be travelling from around the province to playdown at the Club during the 4-day Championship. The event will consist of a 7-game round robin between Thursday and Saturday, with the semi-final and final being played on Sunday.

“The Club is honoured to have been chosen to host the 2021 Ontario Mixed Curling Championship. The Committee, Volunteers and Staff have been working diligently to ensure the event is a great success for the competitors and the Club.” said Club President and Event Co-Chair Frank Dayus.

A partnership with CurlTV and Cogeco has allowed the Championship to be viewed by fans and spectators at home. CurlON has created a website to provide information on the teams, schedule, and scores. The webpage will also provide a link to watch games via the live CurlTV broadcast.

“Having the Championship in our community is a great way to showcase the amazing assets of Tecumseh and Essex County as well as highlighting the rich history of Beach Grove,” said Aidan Blunt, General Manager. “For some of the participants it will be their first time this far southwest in the province and we look forward to making their time here memorable!”

The Club has a deep-rooted history within the community, since the day of its inception in 1921, dating back to the days of prohibition. During those early years, there were many hardships and struggles the Club had to overcome including the Great Depression, a devastating fire that destroyed the original Clubhouse, privations of WWII and the Lake St Clair shoreline flood of 1973. What these historic challenges afforded the Club was an opportunity to grow stronger, together with the support of the members and the community.

The Club continues to move forward, preparing for the next 100 years and positioning itself for a vibrant future! Keeping with tradition, Beach Grove, during its Centennial Year, raised over $100,000 for the community as part of our Creating a Legacy Campaign. The money raised will be donated to charities within the community as a way of giving back. Moving forward, Beach Grove will continue to provide an exceptional membership experience by offering outstanding facilities, an immaculately manicured 18-hole golf course, vibrant curling operation and superb dining experiences.
