At the same time, he asks that golfers refrain from visiting due to safety concerns.
Hello Friends, It is with a heavy heart that I inform you that we have lost our beloved clubhouse due to a fire throughout the night. Our staff and their families are all safe. Bell Bay will be closed until further notice as we evaluate the damages. I ask all members and guests to refrain from coming to the club due to safety concerns. We are committed to getting back to regular operation in the coming days. I would like to take this time to thank the Baddeck & Middle River Volunteer Fire department for their tireless efforts throughout the night. We look forward to welcoming you back to Bell Bay in the coming days.
