July 22 Family & Friends 9 and Dine

A heat-resistant group of members and guests had a wonderful summer evening playing nine holes on the Old Course at Knollwood on Friday.

The temperature was enough to wilt the weeds, the humidex was enough to make one’s mascara run, but there was a nice breeze and a well stocked refreshment cart.

We had 4 foursomes play and join together to tell lies and fabrications about how poorly all the people in their group played. As cards were tallied there were shrieks of pleasure at improvements and groans at bad shots that damaged hard won handicaps. Mostly we were congratulating each other on a fine outing and regaling our after-golf table mates with stories of great shots made and witnessed.

We toasted each other on the patio, shared dinner into the twilight, and marvelled at the Banana Split or Brownie Sundae desserts.

Here is a view of the party!

We’ll be playing the New Course and dining at the Old Course on Fri Aug 26. Call the clubhouse at 905-648-8285 to reserve your tee time. Don’t forget to tell them you are with EWGA.

2016 Golden Horseshoe Chapter Championship

This year we joined in with the Waterloo Chapter for our Chapter Championship. We played at the Doon Valley Golf Course in Kitchener. Here is a link to the website.


Here is a link to the scorecard with the course map.


Golden Horseshoe had five members in competitive play. Each of competed in one of five flights – based on their handicaps.

While we played with the Kitchener Waterloo chapter, they “competed” as our own chapter.  They got a break as the weather improved; the temperature cooled down and the humidity dropped for the weekend.

The great news is that there was one EWGA Golden Horseshoe Member per each flight so we were all winners.
