On Aug 3rd the re-scheduled Member/Member golf and patio day will take place under what is now forecasted as a beautiful sunny day. If you have not registered yet please check it out on the club website. Great value not to be missed!

Keep an eye out for some additional info regarding our Aug 17th Stableford/Winefest day. Along with some great prizes and betting payouts, participants will enjoy a free wine tasting from the following Ontario Wineries. (Stratus, Domaine Queylus, Westcott, and Cloudsley) Featured wines will be available throughout the afternoon by the glass or bottle. You will also be able to place an order with the wineries for home delivery if you so choose. Entertainment will be provided on the patio into the afternoon. 

It will not be long now until we are gearing up for club championship. Your Wednesday men's league will be entering the playoffs soon and as we head into the fall the excitement of the course renos will begin. 

Play well and see you on the course!
