The Original And Still The Best
A golf fanatic, a student of this grandest of games, a lover of all things golf! Tom has participated in organizing and reaping the benefits of golf all over the lower mainland. Born in Vancouver, raised his family in Ladner, moved to Tsawwassen with his wife Debbie. Tom has read countless instructional books on golf, some have even helped! He once read a book on anti-gravity, but had a hard time putting it down! He looks forward to meeting and welcoming the returning and new members of the ‘Original and still the best men’s golf club’. His interactions with patrons at his second home, the driving range and putting green, will continue to be a platform to spread the good news about TMGC.
Andrew only started playing golf in 2002 and after two years of frustration (for the golf pro that is) in 2004 decided to impose his amateur golf prowess on the Tsawwassen Mens Golf Club. In 2009 as a clever move to reduce his time on the golf course, the Executive conscripted him as Match Chairman and kept him busy in that role until he handed the Chair over to Vern Novack in 2011. He was elected to Captain for the 2016/2017 season and was elected President for the 2018 season where he and the other Executives will work to make the club even more popular in the coming years.
President - Andrew Connaris
After Vern’s retirement in 2009 he joined the Tsawwassen Men’s Golf Club and became a member of the executive in 2011. During Vern’s career path, golf was always part of his leisure time. He organized many major golf tournaments for Canron, the Vancouver Electric Club and the B.C. Electrical Association to name a few. Vern has also been a club fitter for 27 years, but now has scaled down to only repairs and re gripping for friends. Taking on the responsibility of Match Chairman for the Men’s Club, has become quite a challenge, in the past, but look for greater improvements, from Vern in the coming years.
Tom and his wife Sandra moved to Ladner in September 2006 and he joined TMGC in 2008 at the “old course”. He was conscripted to the Executive at the 2009 AGM for the 2010 Season. Tom also occasionally “works” at Kings Links Golf Course and helps look after the Tree Swallow Boxes on the course. He has enjoyed his four years on the Executive, but obviously is not bright enough to be promoted beyond the Social Chair. Tom is looking for another “bright” TMGC member to assist in the Social responsibilities.
Social Chairman - Tom Bearss
Bruce joined the Tsawwassen Men’s Golf Club back in April 1992. With barely a swing off the 1st tee he was put into action on the Men’s Club Executive as Membership Chairman. Within a short time he held the position of Social Chairman and kept on par by moving up the ranks to Assistant Match Chairman, then on to the role of First Vice Captain for 2 years, and then became the Club Captain holding that position for 4yrs. He was then voted in by the membership to become Club President, and has served his fellow members as President for the past 16 years. In 1995 Bruce created the TMGC logo and has continually taken strides on and off the course to grow the membership, engage sponsors, and help create the TMGC website. Heading into his 25th year on the TMGC Executive Bruce looks forward to not only another GREAT GOLF SEASON but in making a greater impact on the community and the TMGC members.
