As I sit here writing this excerpt for the newsletter, the sun is shining, the birds are singing, and the grass is green. Oh yes, I’m still in Florida – lol! But the weather in North Bay is warming up too; hopefully, the golf season will begin as planned.
We’re going to be doing something different for the Thursday ladies’ days this year. Tee times will be set aside every Thursday morning for players to show up and form their own groups. On several Thursdays throughout the season, there will be an organized game involving the golf pro.
Our regular events, i.e., The Macpherson Cup, the C. Bell Stableford event, and the Wrightway Sports putting party have all been scheduled and spaced out as requested by the membership. The two-person Beth Butler event has been moved to a late afternoon start on a Tuesday to allow for participation from our working members. Once again, we gratefully acknowledge the sponsors for these events.
Year two of the season-long match play sponsored by Tim Horton’s saw a repeat winner in Sandy Deschenes. This net event will continue to be modified and expanded as it grows.
Last year’s two-day Ryder Cup event was a great success – so much so that this year, it has been scheduled in the calendar for a weekend of play and socialization.
We will be celebrating the 30th year of our Ladies’ Invitational tournament in 2015. For this milestone year, we have introduced a new format to the tournament - a two-lady team instead of individual play; it will still be a two-day event with a day-one format of better ball and a day-two format of a scramble. We are very fortunate to have Assante Wealth Management as the major sponsor for this event.
