Riverside is often thought of as a golf club, and although this is true, it is also much more. The club boasts a five sheet curling rink with some of the best ice in New Brunswick as well as a social club that includes over 20 club suppers, holiday events, and private dining.
Golf members at Riverside have curling included in their membership and below are some testimonials to the fun that some new curlers are having each winter. Whether you're a current member who has never considered curling, a curler with no place to curl or a social person looking for a good time in the winter.
Riverside is the place to be and we are signing up new members to join the club every week! The ice is scheduled to be open for November 2 and 3.
Due to knee surgery, I gave up skiing in 2014. This left a gap in my winters and I wasn't sure what I was going to do to get through the Winter. I was on the Riverside deck at the end of golf season, when another member reminded me that curling was part of my membership. I tried curling, and I'm so glad that I did. It helps keep away the winter blues and I'd say I almost look forward to the season, now. If you have never tried it, please do. There are free lessons and clinics to get you started, great people to play with, and a new game to discover. Take my word for it, winter can be a whole lot more fun!
I, like a lot of people, took a break from golfing while raising kids. Since my return to Riverside my wife suggested that I try curling "since it's part of the membership" - a truly great suggestion. I now have friendly competition weekly with men, women, and kids of all ages. If you are new to the game, there is absolutely no pressure. There are lots of people to help you get started and some that will continue to give advice on a regular basis as well as organized lessons. At the end of each game, both teams sit, chat and enjoy a cold beverage of your choice. Folks, this is a great way to get through the winter, meet new people and if you are already a golf member, it's part of the package!
