The club would also like to thank Dorothy Hadley, Peggy Carool, Barb Armstrong, Careen Heggie and Lois Finch for the hours they spent on the gardens and boxes. And Barbara and Neil Hindle for their work on the 9th garden.

Chronogolf

Chronogolf has updated their support page to provides tutorials on how to navigate your Chronogolf account, including tee time bookings, house accounts, accessing your dashboard and scoring insights.  You can access these new tutorials in both English and French and there is also one specifically for the mobile app (in English).

Juniors

Members took on the task of teaching our Juniors on a rotating basis last summer with tremendous success. It was noticeable how well the Juniors connected with our volunteer members, whose passion and love for the club and the Junior program really resonated with them.

After reaching out to many local golf pros, we are still in need of teachers to lead golf lessons on Monday mornings for the 2024 season. So, we are once again turning to you!

We are looking for 6 volunteers to teach one Monday each (please feel free to sign up for more). Lessons run weekly on Monday mornings from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30/11 a.m. from June 24 until July 29.  Please let us know if you are interested in volunteering to help the next group of Juniors succeed. Please email Stephanie at stephanielogothetis@gmail.com.

An email to parents with details will be coming soon.

Ladies

The Ladies Opening Meeting shall be held at the Clubhouse in person for all who care to attend (no Zoom this year). Members are welcome to arrive at 10 a.m. to enjoy coffee, goodies, and a catch-up chat before the meeting commencement at 10:30 a.m. See you there! (agenda)

 

And a reminder that the Ladies Invitational Golf Tournament will be held on Wednesday, July 17 from 8 a.m., with a fun day of golf and lunch expected. Please note Guest Golf Fees will be $25 on top of the $45 cost for lunch. The price of lunch for members is $40.
