NEW! Men's Night is now on Wednesdays for the month of July! As of July 3rd the Club will host Men's Night as a test to determine if more players are interested in Wednesday versus Thursday.  Different formats and different menus and pricing will be tried as a way to increase participation. Each week will start with a free clinic at 1:00 p.m. and a shotgun at 1:30 p.m. for 18 holes and 3:00 p.m. for nine hole players. Optional dinners will be either $20 or $25 (+HST) each week.

Despite the wet weather the golf course remains fairly firm in most areas, the exceptions being #2 and #10. These areas are the lowest on the property and tend to hold a little more moisture after rain events. While we have been experiencing some precipitation, we have not had any large rain events and certainly have not had damaging rain. Our golf course has been quite playable throughout this stretch of weather but this has been no less annoying to golfers.

If you struggle with both thin and pulled shots, you may want to pay attention to your shoulders. One of the main functions in the backswing is to turn the shoulders in a circle on a downward angle while staying over the ball. This will allow the hands and the golf club to travel on a preferred path to the top of the swing.

Congratulation to  Andrea White and Brian Koturbash for winning the Couples Tournament with a fantastic score of 63. We had a record number of participants - 88. Great time was had by all - no divorces!

Ladies Day - Results: June 25 – We tried a new game – String. Each person was given a length of string which could be used anywhere on the course to get out of trouble, in place of a short putt etc. Winners of the day were: 1st place – Sheila Kaarlela 2nd place – Sharon Maloney, Catherine Sendell and Erica Armstrong. Sharon Maloney won the draw for her food and beverage chit.

FLAG GOLF -  is a competition format in which golfers begin the round of golf with an allotment of strokes, then play the golf course until their strokes run out. 
 
The game gets its name from the fact that little flags are usually given to competitors to stick in the ground at the point from which their final shot is played. No Cost. Regular Tee Times and this is an optional event.
