Hope you all enjoyed yourselves.  Our next tournament is the end of this month.  See you there!



I attended the Municipal Golf Course Advisory Committee meeting on Thursday, May 25th and have been asked to send some information to our membership

1) International Women’s Golf Day Event

Volunteers are required for this event on Tuesday, June 6th at Victoria Golf Course.  If you are interested in playing and/or volunteering, just show up at the Victoria Golf Course at about 4 PM and check in with the ladies organising the event.  More information on this event is on this City of Edmonton webpage:

2) There will be a course review to identify issues with some of the trees on Riverside Golf Course with a representative from the Forestry branch for the City of Edmonton, Golf Course Operations staff from the City and members of clubs golfing at Riverside.  This will be happening sometime in July but I don’t have any specific date yet.  There is one member from the Men’s Leagues that will be participating, Bob Wylie.

We can only have one female representative and the Day Ladies League President has already told me that there would not be anyone in her league interested in this and that they are okay with Bob representing them.
Are there any ladies in our league interested in participating in this course review to represent the Ladies Leagues (RBG & RDL)?
If you are interested, please let me know by mid June.
If there is no interest in our league, I will ask that Bob represent us as well.

3) I attend the MGAC meetings on a regular basis, the next one is on July 13, 2017.  If you have any issues with the course, pro shop, food & beverage service, etc. let me know and I can take your concerns to the representatives from the City at this meeting.
