Hello Everyone

A symbolic tree planting will take place on Wednesday, September 25 at 6:30 pm, at the new trees on the right side of hole #1.  This is taking place to show our respect and gratitude for members of the association that supported the Muni through the years. It also provides a time to reflect on our memories of those that can no longer join us at the course.  Please feel welcome to come out to take part in this event and shovel a small scoop of soil to help us recognize many contributions made over the years.

Hello Everyone 

Just a quick mid month update on things coming up at course.

This Monday Doug Pinder is holding a 2 man scramble at 1pm. Teams will be made via Handicaps and its sure to be a fun day with Burgers on the grill after the round. Cost is $25 and there is still plenty of room for players looking to get onto the sign up sheet on the information board. 

This Saturday we will also be hosting 36 holes of Romeo Cup action against the SCC. Tee times start at 8am and 1pm for anyone who wishes to come out and watch. 

Lastly our 2019 Annual General Meeting, will be hosted on Wednesday October 16th at 7pm in the Clubhouse. There are fliers posted around clubhouse, and we encourage all members to attend.

Hope everyone is enjoying the last long weekend of Summer, as we slowly move towards fall golf, I just wanted to send out a quick update on the course and events coming up as we move into September.

Yesterday we were able to get an early aeration done on our greens!! this maintenance practice is a must to maintain good turf health and produce great greens. You may ask why so early when most years/courses are done near end of September? but this is actually the time to do them as warmer temps help with faster recovery and new growth. Meaning less time noticing the aeration holes!! and past practices have seen tournaments/ golfers pushing for later aeration dates. This new aeration time will help in continually seeing our greens improve as we strive to have the best greens around.

In September we see the end of most leagues, including Men’s league which ends with our Men’s closing day on Sept 7th. Tee times can be booked at the pro-shop counter with times available from 10:30am till 4:30pm with a meal provided for league players.

We will also see 12 of our Muni players play against the Stratford Country Club for the Romeo Cup on the 14th and 15th of September!!! We encourage anyone who wants to come out to the Muni on the 14th and cheer on our players to do so, as we go for our 6th win in 7 years.

Cheers

Lawn Bowling green fee opportunity.

Some Muni members have expressed an interest in trying lawn bowling and 5 have already given it a try.  It has now been organized that Muni members/family/partners are able to try lawn bowling on a $5.00 green fee basis.  If you wish to try I have provided some times below for that.  These are times when lawn bowling club members are at the green to help you get playing and provide some guidance.

If you see me, Steve Nesbitt, at the golf course then let me know if you will be out for one of these times or if you have questions. You can also email me at    [email protected]     if that works.  I would like to know just in case a large number of people want to try at anyone time.

Flat soled athletic shoes are recommended but some bowlers wear sandals.

Times available are as follows:

Wednesday, Aug. 14
8:30 am – 10:00am
7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Thursday, Aug. 159:00 am – 10:30 am

Hello Everyone

Just a quick update on some key dates around the golf course in July.

Our Men’s Invitational is coming up this Saturday July 6th. There are only a few spots left, for this great event which includes 18 holes, steak dinner, and full prize table. Sign up can be done at the Pro shop counter, and sign up deadline is Thursday at 12pm.

The Monday morning program starts Monday, July 8.  Registration begins at 8:30. The program runs until 12 noon.  Price remains the same as last year – $5 for club members and $20 for non-members.  There is information on the Stratford Municipal Golf Course website under the heading leagues. This year the emphasis for the program will be on the play on the course with instructions about proper etiquette of the game.

Volunteers are always welcome to help mentor the juniors around the course.

In particular, a volunteer is needed to work with the young introductory players (6 – 8year olds).  If anyone is interested please let Kyle or Steve Nesbitt know or leave your name and contact information at the booth in the clubhouse.

We will also see our Smoke Cole Sr. Event on Thursday July 11th at 9am and Our Sr Club Championship on Sunday July 21st at 9am both sign ups can be found at Pro shop Counter as well.

Lastly it has been brought forward to the city that a car bottomed out leaving the parking lot, as most of you already know it is a steep incline and caution must be used when coming in and out!!!
