  • Welcome to our new Board Members

    Our Annual General Meetingwas held virtually on October 6, and our York-Simcoe board was elected. Welcome to Cathy Ollerhead, who volunteered to serve as President, and Katrin Cooper, who volunteered to service as League Chair.

    York-Simcoe Board  2020-2021:

    President                 Cathy Ollerhead
    Treasurer                Jennifer Lynn
    Membership            Kelly Gard
    League                    Katrin Cooper
    Rules & Handicap   Barb Thompson
    Communications     Carol Buchinski

    If you have any ideas as to what you would like to see in 2021, please forward them to any of our board members. We will be planning over the winter for a great season next year!

    Huge thank you to outgoing President Anne Jessop and League Chair Megan Bawn for all of their efforts to make our season so enjoyable, despite the restrictions we faced due to Covid 19. Our weekly attendance was strong and we had several new members join us this year.

     

    Masters Pool

    It's not April, but The Masters is just around the corner, being played November 12-15th. There won't be rhododendrons and azaleas on the course, but we can still pick our fantasy golf teams and place our bets... and win money if your team plays well! It willbe pretty similar to last year's British Open Pool, but we will do the team drafts through a virtual meeting. Look for more details to come out in early November.

     

    Handicaps

    If you currently have a Golf Canada (aka Golf Ontario) membership where you maintain your handicap, and you are due to renew it before May of 2021, please drop a note to Karen Caume at memberservices@lpgaamateurscanada.ca. We may have a way to save you a bit of money.

     

    Post your Handicaps in Ontario until October 31

    Every geographical area has an active season for handicaps depending on their climate. For Ontario, our active season is April 15 - October 31. This means all games played in Ontario between those dates should be posted and will count toward your Handicap Index.

    If you may have missed posting a few rounds, this is a good time to catch up. You can use previous scorecards, or if you didn't keep them, use the 9 hole scores that were posted for our league games at www.golfscoring.net/cardinal/womens9/2020

    THANKS FOR SHOWING YOUR CANADIAN SPIRIT!

    Thanks to everyone who was able to celebrate Canada Day with us on June 30. We are proud Canadians and had fun bringing our red and white to the course. Cardinal said it was the most red and white they'd seen all day! Complimentary beverages were much enjoyed during or after the round. A great time was had by all, as you can see from the pictures below. Thanks for your support, and we look forward to our next fun event!
