Upcoming Events
A shout out to all our participants in LPGA Amateurs - GTA's Step Aside Scramble at Woodington Lakes on September 19th
Here we have First Place champions with a score of 56 - Hidden Lake Chicks with Stix.  From left to right:  Jae Rang (GTA), Shelley Speal (HB/GTA), Crystal Clark (GTA) and Lise Campeau (GTA).  Congrats ladies!
Also competing was Team Hamburgirls - Jeannine Woodland, Angeline Lundquist, Deb Kucheran and Glenna Scarlet.  We had a great day with not a cloud in the sky, a beautiful, somewhat sprawling, course and great fun.

Congrats to all our participants in the LPGA Amateurs Ontario Championship and Fun Division Tournament,  Sept 12 at Richmond Hill Golf Club

Championship Division - Michelle Hoad, Leah-Ann Duffield, Natalie Laforet, Janet Canavan, Shelley Speal, Angie Lundquist and Donna Hood
Special Congrats to Natalie Laforet who won 3rd Low Gross in the Third Flight, and to Donna Hood who won 1st Low Gross in the Fourth Flight.

Fun Division - Nancy Kingston, Jeannine Woodland, Jenn Simpson and Deb Kucheran.  In the Fun Division, we played Bingo Golf; the Tombstone game didn’t work for us as we were playing scramble;  Nancy was literally “this close” to winning Closest to the Line; and no luck on Closest to the Pin or Longest Putt.  But all in all, a whole lot of laughs.  

The Events Committee thanks Jenn Simpson for your last minute offer of help, coming out early in the day to help with Registration - which allowed the Event Organizer to be free to roam around ensuring everything else was in order.  Much appreciated by the committee.  

Thank you to Kandy Golf and Transaxle Group of Companies for the swag bag of balls and cap!

How to "match play" Presentation

Hello Hamburgirls! Still not sure about entering the Match Play competition on August 14/15? Don't really even know what "match play" even is? Well your Events Committee has put together a virtual presentation on how to score your card in this different (but fun) style of play.
Come learn about what 'match play' is, how you "get strokes" on your opponent, and how easy it is to keep score when all you is win, lose or tie each hole.
This presentation will give you enough comfort to register for the Team Match Play event, or at the very worst, will make the Ryder Cup make more sense
To attend this presentation, on July 12th at 8pm, click This link..
To find out more about the Team Match Play event, from the chapter website click on the big View Chapter Events Here button on the right hand side to view this and other events. Change the TOUR to All-Ontario or All to locate the match play event.
