The league normally has breakfast before their monthly game, but as a result of the COVID-19 restrictions at the club, the members chose to donate their funds to help the clients at the food bank.

Les Brough, a golfer and also the treasurer of the food bank, said while the golf course is open, there are no touch points at the course. There are no rakes along the course and the pins are left in the holes throughout the game.

Brough said the community has been generous in donating to the food bank.

“Every time we’ve reached out to the community, they’ve responded,” he said.
