Mystery Tour

Our trip to St. George’s Golf and Country Club, next year’s Canadian PGA venue, was such a fun day for 30 lucky ladies! We enjoyed a beautiful summer day of golf followed by an amazing lunch. We were treated to first class service by all their staff.

Team Play Closing Party

Our Team Play Closing Party was held Thursday, September 5th. Ladies enjoyed a nice buffet and celebrated the winners. Those Chip’n Gals were hard to beat this year.  I would like to thank Jayne Riley, our Team Play Convener, for a great job and for keeping your captains well informed.

Business Women

The Business Women will have their Closing Tournament on Saturday September 7th with tee times between 1:00-1:30pm.  Signup is on the BGCC website. A special thank you to Lynn Graham for her continued efforts in convening the Business Women’s league.

Closing Day/Pari-Mutuel + Dinner

Our Ladies Closing Day is already here. It will be held on Tuesday, September 10th. We currently have 91 ladies signed up. Don’t forget that pari-mutuel betting begins in the Chalet at 11am, followed by a 12:30 pm shotgun.  Cocktails will be at 5:30 pm and a buffet dinner will begin at 6:00 pm.  Our Annual General Meeting will follow the dinner. Hope to see you there!

Cocktail Reception to Celebrate Men & Ladies Club Championship as well as Winners and Runner Ups for all Match Play

Please mark your calendar for Thursday, October 10th at 6:00 p.m. to come and celebrate our Club Champions as well as our winners/runner ups for all Match Play.

On behalf of the Ladies Executive, I would like to thank all of you for your support and participation this season.  Your continued feedback is much appreciated.  Don’t forget that we still have many weeks of good golfing weather left. Playing fewer holes might not be a bad thing at this time of year – you get to the clubhouse for the after celebration much sooner!

Regards,

Danielle Ross
