Message From the Board...

We would like to thank all those who participated in our first annual “Sturgeon Point Golf Classic” on July 9th.  A great time was had by all!


  From the golf to the food to the dance, every aspect was top notch and sets the bar high for next year’s Classic!  Feedback has been extremely positive and we hope to build on this success for next year.  Also we would like to thank all those who donated to the cause.  The money raised will go towards enhancing our junior golf program and truly make our club a “premium” destination for junior golfers and their families!

Director of Golf Operations - Mike Gascho 

I’d like to extend a huge thanks to all the organizers, volunteers and participants of the Inaugural Sturgeon Point Classic. It was a fabulous event! 

We started our evening Junior Clinic on July 14th with a great group of kids. There are still 3 Thursday evenings left in the series and kids are welcome to sign up for the remaining sessions. We also wrapped up our second Junior Camp. The July 25-29 session is sold out but there are a very limited number of spaces available for August 15-19. 

 

Ladies Clinics will be starting on July 25th and ending on August 22nd.  $25 per session or $90 for the full series. Includes a beer or glass of wine, with lots of fun and coaching.

WOW - Women on Wednesdays

On June 22nd the ladies from WOW hosted their annual “Breast Cancer Fundraiser Golf Tournament”.  It was a great day and raised $2,160 for a great cause!  Our Women on Wednesday league is in full swing as we continue to grow our membership.  Welcome to all those newcomers!

Men's Friday League
In total we have played 10 Fridays  with a couple of casual pickup games played in April. Participation this year has been down, averaging  only 35 golfers (versus 42 last year at this time) and this was helped by the great turnout we had for last weeks Guest day.  Remember you can bring a guest any Friday

I’m thrilled to welcome Tasha Bullock to the Pro Shop this season. Her past experience and positive attitude will be a great addition to our team.
 

Mel Densham has created a beautiful painting of the clubhouse and has generously donated one print to the club, as well as one for the Sturgeon Point Classic Gala. He is selling limited edition prints in the Pro Shop. $145 framed or $99 unframed. 

We kicked off the Golf In Schools program last month with a school visit to Lady McKenzie Public School in Kirkfield. I’ll be visiting Langton Public School in Fenelon this week. We’ll be hosting the students at SPGC on June 13th and 20th to introduce them to our course and the game. This initiative is the first step in developing our Junior Program to reach out to new young members. 

Our Junior Golf Camp starts in July with the first session already sold out! Spaces are still available for kids aged 8 to 12 in subsequent weeks through July and August. The cost is $195 (tax included). Golf Camp kids are eligible for an optional Junior Membership for just $99. Men's, Ladies' and Teen Clinics will be starting up soon. Sign-up sheets will be going up in the Pro Shop to gauge interest so keep your eyes peeled.

WOW - Women on Wednesdays

Friday Men’s Day

Turnout so far has been limited to a small, but consistent group of about 35 individuals. As the season moves forward and the weather improves there is likely to be more interest. Prizewinners have been many and varied due to the different games and team selections. Many thanks to the volunteer men who consistently set up and run these games. Welcome all members!

CLUB CHAMPIONSHIP

From the Board
We would like to thank all of the members who came out to assist in the spring clean up; Bob Austin, Bob Miller, Kim Colliss, George Welwood, Hugh Graham, Paul Wilson, Howard Garrie, Sam Fox and Roger Beaven.  Thank you also to the staff for an amazing job in getting ready for this year’s golf season.  There was a lot of skunk damage on the course and winter rules should apply until these areas are playable.  Another arbour day is planned for the dock area.  Watch for the date as we’ll need volunteers. 
Please support our upcoming junior golf program and buy a ticket to the 1st Annual Sturgeon Point Classic. 
 
Director of Golf Operations - Mike Gascho
 
We’ve had a great start to the season folks, and a big part of that is thanks to the
volunteers that helped with the course cleanup prior to opening. Your efforts are greatly appreciated.
 
Tony and his staff have the golf course in wonderful shape despite the recurring late-night visitors searching for grubs in the rough. The damage will take time to fix while we wait for rain to help with re-growing the affected areas.
 
We are proud to be contributing to the Golf in Schools program this year by sponsoring Langton Public School and Lady McKenzie Public School, which will introduce 150 kids to our junior program. I will be making a school visit as well as bringing the students to SPGC for a course visit and onsite golf lesson.
 
Stop by the Pro Shop to sign up for:
  • Our Wine & Cheese to be held on Saturday June 11th at 5 pm. We need to have an idea of numbers so let us know if you plan to attend.
  • Sign in for your free Golf Canada Bronze Membership, and ask us about upgrading to a Gold Membership.
