Carpe Diem! Seize the Season!

August 12, 2019 Tom McCracken

Hi Guys;

Our recent Member/Member golf day was a big success both on and off the course. Congrats to Lin and Brian Chisholm who finished in first place in the morning draw with a net 62.13. The afternoon draw saw Kathy Coleman and Tom Schofield post a tidy net 57 to capture first place honours. 

The Men's Champ Flight Match Play weekend saw some outstanding scores from all participants. Jonathan Ross edged out Sean Kennedy to finish as the Overall Champion. Well done.

AUGUSTFEST ~ Oktoberfest in August
This coming Saturday is our Stableford two-man event. As part of this tourney you are able to "wheel bet" your foursome in the Pro shop prior to tee off. Afterwards all players will be treated to a wine tasting and charcuterie board pairing from Stratus, Westcott, Domaine Queylus and Cloudsley wineries. They will be featuring some outstanding Ontario wines which will be available on the patio all day. Representatives from each winery will be around to speak with and if you are interested in placing an order for some wine to be delivered to your home. The weather looks good for this weekend and we will also have some casual music on the patio for your enjoyment. 

See you at the course!
