Results for July 20, 2021
Well Ladies that was fun, some of the scores were fantastic, obviously playing 9 holes for 2 weeks is better than one week!
I split the tournament so that those who only played one week had a little competition.
One week: 1st. Fran Tymchyshen with a net 34 2nd. with a net 37 was Dot Britt, and 3rd. with a net 39 was Erminia Maykut – well done ladies!
Eclectic Tournament, a lot more people and tough competition.
1. With a net 27(drug tests please), was Kathy Gallant, 🤩
2. With a net 29 was Heather Shipman
3. With a net 30 was Teresa Kane
4. All with net 32 and winning each were: Roberta Cathcart, Alison Cunningham, Cathy Densmore, Jan Heron, Sue Lavigne, Jeannine Roberts and Muriel Martin.
This was a super exciting tournament because everyone else scored in the net 30s with the highest score being 36, see how close everyone was, handicaps work.
Now the Over 70 trophy 🏆 This week’s winner is Sue Martyn with a net 30 and the 3 points followed by Heather Shipman and Roberta Cathcart with a net 32 and an additional point each.
The standings are now: Teresa leading with 14 points, Sue Lavigne with 13, Jeannine and Diane with 12 each, Sue Martyn has 11, Franki has 10.5, Wendy, Anne Bakhle and Roberta each have 10.

Ladies’ Golf Results, Tuesday, July 13, 2021
I think the Eclectic title put some people off their game. I, for one have all 9 holes to improve on next week and a few others probably have similar comments. There are always a few exceptions (or show offs), right Teresa and Fran, both had good rounds and Heather who birdied the sixth, try and improve on that one Heather!
I know that a few people can only participate in one of the two weeks, so we’ll have a little tournament for that group too. Next week your scorecards will include this week’s scores so you will know which holes to improve on.
Now to the over 70 trophy 🏆.
This week the big winner was Teresa Kane with a net 32, followed by Fran Tymchyshen with a net 34. Great rounds Ladies!
Standings are: Teresa with 13 points on July 13th.! Sue Lavigne has 12, Jeannine and Diane have 11 each, Franki 9.5, Wendy and Anne Bakhle have 9 each, Celia and Fran have 8 and nearly everyone else has 7 or 6. It’s very close.

Wendy Cuthbert had the low net of 32, followed by Sue Lavigne and Celia Ferguson scoring nets of 33 each.
Standings are as follows:
Sue Lavigne 11 points, Jeannine Roberts and Diane Harvey each have 10, Teresa Kane 9, Franki Robinson 8.5, Wendy Cuthbert and Anne Bakhle each have 8 points.

Tied for 2nd. Diana Hambly/Sue Lavigne and Heather Shipman/Connie Thornton.
Tied for 4th. Franki Robinson/Sue Martyn and Celia Ferguson/Joann D’Antonio.

Ladies’ Golf Results, Thursday, June 29, 2021
Hello Ladies, we got it in, it was a hot one!
I only had to do one thing when I finished and that was collect the Blind Mice from the Pro Shop, I forgot and had to call 📞 when I got home. So this is where the blame game starts, Gary answered the phone ☎️ and picked #2, 4 and 6.
The results were all pretty close with everybody scoring in the 20s. There were in fact 3 winners all with a score of 21 and a 4th. place of 22.
Anne Bakhle, Joann D’Antonio and Sue Lavigne were the big winners and Colette Eston collected 4th place.
The over 70 trophy 🏆 had another different winner this week, Anne Bakhle was the low net with a net 32.5, Sue Lavigne and Jeannine Roberts each had a net 35, these Golden Oldies are something else!
The standings now are Jeannine, Sue Lavigne and Diane Harvey each have 9 points, Teresa has 8, Franki has 7.5 and Anne Bakhle has 7. The rest of us have our attendance points.
Congratulations to all the winners! Have a great Canada Day!

Note to all members from Franki Robinson
We hope the computers will be up and running soon. In the mean time if you have to cancel a tee time through the Pro Shop, as a courtesy could you email the folks you were to play with to let them know you will not be showing up. Several players, myself included have been left high and dry as all people have cancelled and not notified the the other three players in the time slot.
Results from June 22, 2021
We got off to a cool start yesterday, but my goodness it had a tremendous affect on some people’s games. I needn’t have worried about low handicaps stealing the show, the winners were dominated by mid and high handicaps. Congratulations Norma on your 🦅 on the 16th hole.
The Over 70 competition is still a tight race: yesterday’s low net was Jeannine at net 34, followed by Diane Harvey at 34.5.
The standings are now: Diane with 8 points, Sue Lavigne, Jeannine and Teresa each having 7 points, Franki with 6.5 and Rose with 5.
The “also rans” – got the usual points for attendance.
Congratulations to the “Winners and Grinners”!
Cathy scored a net 31.5, congratulations 👏
Enid Gough was second with a net 32 👍Jeannine Roberts was third with a net 34 😃
Diane Harvey was fourth with a 34.5 net 😃It really was close and well distributed, Roberta had a net of 35 and Heather had 36 😃
Weekly Results – May 25 and June 1, 2021
Over 70s trophy 🏆
May 25th. Both Judy Nasby and Franki Robinson had low nets of 38, that leads them off with 3.5 points each. Remember everyone gets a point for attendance.
June 1st. Week 2 was won by Teresa Kane with low net of 36 closely followed by Diane Harvey with a low net of 36.5. Didn’t both these ladies win this 🏆 before? So the overall standings now are: Teresa 5, Judy and Franki 4.5 each and Diane 4.
Now for the competitions!
May 25th. Throw out the worst hole! 1st. Donna Knox with 29.5 2nd. Susan Crane and Franki Robinson each had 30 4th. Diana Hambly and Rachel Cameron each had 30.5 After that there were 5 ladies with 31 each. The scores were all very close.
June 1st. Mutt and Jeff. 1st. Susan Crane with net 13 on those 4 holes. The newest and most winningest member so far, but I’ll be watching your handicap! 2nd. Fran Tymchyshen with net 14. 3rd. With a 3-way tie of net 16 – Donna Knox, Sue Lavigne and Jeannine Roberts.
Next week I’ll put all the 18s and 9s in separate groups to try and speed up play. That does not apply to you ladies who are still working or have special requests for appointments etc., I will still take that into account.
Have a great week,
Celia Ferguson (Ladies’ Captain)
Weekly Results – June 15th, 2021
What a wonderful day yesterday was, perfect weather, great company and finally a chance to socialize.
Stars don’t always come out at night, one or more shone yesterday playing golf. I noticed Cathy Densmore had a Birdie on #6 and Sue Lavigne shot a net 34 to tie the lead with Teresa Kane in the over 70 trophy. Dot Britt and Rose Steinhoff followed closely behind Sue with nets of 34.5. Well done 👍.
Now on to the little side game: the 3 Ball Aggregate.
There were 2 teams tied for 1st. place and 2 teams tied for 3rd. and 4th. places. All the other teams scored very similar scores between 114 and 125, which show handicaps do work!
I had to take one player from a 4 person team to add to a 2 person team, to make things fair, but both these teams won anyway.
Tied for 1st. Dot Britt, Anne Bakhle, Teresa Kane. Kathy Gallant, Jan Heron, Franki Robinson. Both teams had a net 108.
Tied for 3rd. Diana Hambly, Heather Shipman, Connie Thornton, Karen Bonham.
Sue Lavigne(she needed more help from her team), Celia Ferguson, Norma Zuccala.
Both these teams scored 110.
I hope you enjoy these silly little games as much as I enjoy scoring them.

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 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.

Thank you to Cathy, Holly and Franki for the muffins.

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.
