Message from the Ladies Executive President ~ January 9th

January 9, 2017 Karen Dyson

Dear Lady Members,

Happy New Year to everyone!

It’s hard to believe that we are only 4 months away from the start of a new golf season!

I am sure that you are all interested to hear about the results of the survey that was sent out in December.  The Ladies Executive is pleased to report the following results:

96 ladies responded to the survey.

  • Do you plan to play in the Ladies Club Championship this coming year?
    • Yes:  28 ladies
    • No:  41 ladies
    • Maybe:  27 ladies
  • If you answered “No”, do you plan to play in the Ladies CC in the future?
    • Yes:  3 ladies
    • No:  28 ladies
    • Maybe:  13 ladies
  • Indicate your preference for having a separate or combined Ladies CC and Senior Ladies CC.
    • Separate:  24 ladies
    • Combined:  68 ladies
  • Would you be in favour of trying the following scenario for next season:
    • Ladies CC (all flights) on Aug 25-27 weekend = 3 days
    • Senior Ladies CC (all ages) one week prior = 2 weekdays
    • One cocktail reception/celebration for both CCs on the Sunday
    • Lady members could play in either or both depending on their preference for weekend vs weekday and/or 3 days vs 2 days.
  • Yes:  60 ladies
  • No:  27 ladies

Although the majority of the ladies who responded are in favour of having a combined Ladies CC and Senior Ladies CC, the majority are also in favour of trying the scenario the Ladies Executive proposed for the upcoming season. I think this speaks to the fact that quite a number of you would like to play during the week for 2 days only. Personally, I am excited to give this a try!

We are already working on Draft#3 of the Ladies Golf Calendar.  I can share a few important dates with you so that you can add them to your own calendar:

  • April 25                New Members Breakfast & Warm-Up Day
  • May 2                   Opening Day & Dinner
  • Aug. 17, 18          Senior Ladies Club Championship
  • Aug. 25-27          Ladies Club Championship
  • Sept. 26               Closing Day & Pari-Mutuel

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at

Warmest regards,
Karen Dyson
