“Golfers in Ontario will have no shortage of opportunities to compete next summer,” said John Lawrence, Manager of Competitions. “Through the feedback of our members we are pleased to add some new championships and changes to our existing tournaments. I would like to thank our member clubs as a schedule of this magnitude could not have been done with out their support.”
The championship season officially begins on May 10th with the Men’s Better-Ball hosted annually at Toronto’s Oakdale Golf & Country Club.
