Message from Fran
The Ladies League Executive met this week to wrap up the season. This included selecting the Executive positions for the 2021 season with a new structure that was agreed to by our members at the Closing Scramble.
The number of members on the executive has been reduced by merging captain and assistant captain for 9 and 18 hole groups. Also, we have removed the requirement that the assistant captain must become captain in the following year.
The Ladies’ League Executive for 2021 is:
Captain: Celia Ferguson
Assistant Captain: Teresa Kane
Treasurer: Cathy Densmore
Secretary: Sue Martyn
Twilight Convenor: Sue Cunningham
Looking forward to a few more weeks of golf and then on to next year.
Now that we have adjusted to the COVID protocols, we hope to offer as much as we can of our regular events and competitions.
Looking forward to a few more weeks of golf.
Thanks to everyone for supporting me through the golf season.
Closing Scramble and Trophy Presentations -2020
Today we had our Closing Scramble and Trophy presentations at the Guelph Country Club. It was a brisk morning for our final golf event of the season. Coffee, muffins and ponchos were the theme to kick start the day with a temperature of 10C! We had some 29 players in attendance. The sun did try to shine for some of the morning. Thank you to Cathy, Holly and Franki for the muffins.
After a shot gun start the Scramble was followed by a lovely lunch of chicken salad and chicken wraps. Thank you to Jeannine for organizing from Jesse’s on the Green. Nancy provided chocolate snacks to all tables and Jeannine baked delicious cookies for dessert.
Thanks to Fran (Ladies Captain) who hosted the day and Cathy who organized the prizes. This was followed with a meeting to discuss next year’s procedures.
Also, a big welcome to our new members, Pachal Leelawathie and Kathy Gallant.
Thank you to Celia for working on the draws and Paul Walton our golf pro.
We all had a great day and look forward to the last couple of weeks of golfing in these Covid times.

MAXIMUM HOLE SCORE
Under the new WORLD HANDICAP SYSTEM the maximum score you may count on a hole is a NET DOUBLE BOGEY, which is a double bogey + any handicap strokes you receive on that hole.
EXAMPLE’S. –IF YOUR HANDICAP IS 9, you would receive a stroke on handicap holes 1-9. On those holes your maximum score is a double bogey + 1 = 3 OVER PAR
Handicap holes 10 – 18, you do not receive a stroke, so your maximum score is a double bogey, 2 OVER PAR.
IF YOUR HANDICAP IS 18, you would receive a stroke on every hole, so your maximum hole score is double bogey + 1 = 3 OVER PAR
If YOUR HANDICAP IS 27, you would receive a stroke on handicap holes 10-18. Maximum hole score is double bogey + 1 = 3 OVER PAR
Handicap holes 1 -9 you receive 2 strokes, so your maximum hole score is double bogey + 2 = 4 OVER PAR.
* You may also enter your scores hole by hole and the computer adjusts scores accordingly.

A Message for the 18 Hole Ladies League
No word yet on an opening date!
Hope you are Safe-At-Home. Each of us is looking forward to an announcement from the Province and then our Board of Directors on the date our club will open for the 2020 golf season.
Although the chilly temperatures in the last few days have not been ideal for golf, everyone is ready to get outdoors and swing their clubs in the wide open spaces! It was great to see Franki’s photos showing all the course improvements and maintenance that Paul Brown and his team have completed.
I have been in regular contact with our pro, Paul Walton. He is eager to get going but there will be many accommodations and restrictions to meet the COVID-19 health and safety requirements. Details of the protocols to be used at our club are being finalized and will be communicated closer to the opening date.
There are lots of unknowns at this point. Initially, no Ladies’ League activities are planned until booking and playing in the “new-normal” gets sorted out over the first few weeks of play.
I am sending you this email because you are designated as member who plays with the Ladies’ League “18-holers”. If your situation has changed, or perhaps you have decided to play with the 9-hole group, please email to keep our records up-to-date.
It will be so-oo-ooo good to pull out our golf gear and see everyone!
Captain, tgcc Ladies’ League
A Message for the 9 Hole Ladies League
Hope this posting finds everyone Happy, Healthy and itching to get the clubs swinging !!
We are still awaiting the official date from the Club as to when we can start golfing. Paul Walton will advise the protocols for league playing. I think we will all agree the social events – such as Guest Day and Inter Club, will be on hold for this year.
The Golf Club will “not” be storing any clubs or personal carts.
There will be no push or pull cart rentals.
Shared power carts will not be allowed – unless you are sharing with a family member.
If you have a locker rental – you must have any personal belongings removed immediately.
There are still a lot of questions to be answered and I am sure Paul Walton and Gary Moore will keep us informed.
Paul Brown and his team have done an excellent job in getting the course ready for play. Lets hope now that the weather co-operates !!
Lastly – if I have sent this email to anyone who’s membership or situation has changed – please contact me by email I will have have my records updated.
Take care and stay healthy.
