MANITOBA AMATEUR GOLFER OF THE YEAR
BRAXTON KUNTZ

Breezy Bend Country Club’s Braxton Kuntz, is the 2023 Male Amateur Golfer of the Year!

Braxton won both the 2023 Manitoba Match Play Championship and the 2023 Manitoba Men’s Amateur Golf Championship. Representing Nicholls State University (NCAA) south of the border, he placed 4th in the Gulf Coast Collegiate Championship, T6 at the Colin Montgomerie Invitational and T7 at the Tunica National Intercollegiate Championship. Braxton also finished T8 at the Elmhurst Invitational, T9 at the Glencoe Invitational and won the Breezy Bend Club Championship.

Braxton was the first player in Manitoba history to win both the Manitoba Junior and Men’s Amateur Championship in back-to-back seasons (2021 and 2022). He is also just the third player to have won the Men’s Amateur Golf Championship in three consecutive years.

With the selection, it is the third time in as many years that Braxton has been named Male Amateur Golfer of the Year (2021, 2022, 2023).

Braxton was unavailable to attend the annual awards banquet in person as he is currently in his junior year at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana.

Congratulations, Braxton!

2024 MEMBERSHIP RENEWALS

Breezy Bend’s 2024 membership renewal forms will be emailed to all club members prior to the end of this month. Given that we have reached our maximum levels in each of our membership categories (there is currently a 60+ person and 15+ corporation waiting list to join BBCC) and that the level of excitement and interest in the Club is extraordinary, it is imperative to know as early as possible how many members are returning and in what categories.

Breezy Bend Country Club’s annual fees are due and payable on January 31, 2024. For those who would prefer, a 6 month plan (January to June) is available by way of cheque, pre-authorized debit, or credit card.

We are pleased to say that BBCC remains one of Winnipeg’s most affordable golf clubs, but at the same time, we feel that we offer the best value. Over $8.5M dollars has been spent on capital improvements to your club over the past 14 seasons, all without significant increases in annual dues or mandatory assessments (unlike all other Winnipeg private golf clubs). We couldn’t be more excited about the events and plans that are in store for the 2024 season!

Please watch your email inbox in the coming days for your 2024 membership renewal forms. Thank you to all our members in advance for your continued support of this great club!

THE GOLF STUDIO AT BREEZY BEND

The Golf Studio at Breezy Bend is pleased to announce that we have upgraded our systems to Foresight FSX Play this year!

FSX Play is the next evolution of true-to-life graphics in golf simulation. With a whole new graphics engine, you’ll experience the game like never before. Rich textures, 3D grass, enhanced lighting, updated UI and HUD, and ultra-smooth gameplay make you feel like you’re on the course.

We have also added two new PC’s to handle the software upgrade. This means our systems run faster, with better graphics and improved playability features. The reviews have been incredible! We have also added 15 new championship golf courses including: Pebble Beach, Spyglass Hills and The Links at Spanish Bay!

Our golf studio is available for a round of golf with friends, corporate outings, lessons and coaching from our knowledgeable Golf Professionals, and custom club fitting with all of the latest and greatest in equipment and technology. We also offer a winter golf league – two person teams with combined low net, where players will post 10 scores on 10 different courses. We will take your best 8 of 10 net scores and the top 4 teams will advance to the playoffs. The league is only $350/player.
