60th Men’s Invitational Results
On Saturday, June 8th 78 amatuer golfers participated in the 60th playing of the Lookout Point Men’s Invitational. The day was a tremendous success with one of the strongest fields we have had in recent years. We had 5 past champions which highlighted the field of elite amateur players. At the end of the day it was one of Lookout Point’s own, a gentlemen who has come very close to winning on multiple occasions, who was able to finally break through.
Congratulations to Ryan Dyck, winner of the 2019 Lookout Point Men’s Invitational
Ryan made 6 birdies en route to a round of 71. Ryan has been playing some great golf as a late, qualifying for both the Ontario Men’s Amateur & the Ontario Men’s Mid-Amateur. A quick start (including 4 birdies on the front) and great playing down the stretch were key’s to Ryan’s victory. Ryan made the turn at 2-under par but by the 12th hole was 1 over along with a number of other players. A birdie on the difficult 13th and again on the 15th steadied the round and while other players began to lose pace Ryan rode his solid play to a 3 shot victory over 2019 champion Garrett Atkinson. Great playing Ryan, we look forward to hosting you as our 2020 defending champion!

Handicap Reporting and Emails
Over the past week we have fielded a number of questions from members who have received an automated email reminding them to post a score in the Golf Canada system. Lookout Point Country Club’s handicap policy requires all members to post scores into their Golf Canada handicap account within 72 hours of completion of their round of golf. The email that members are receiving is an automated message that is being sent by the tee time reservation program (not by any individual or committee). This email is to make you aware that you were checked in on the tee sheet at Lookout Point but have not posted a corresponding score to your handicap account within the required 72 hours. There can be a number of reasons for this, for example, you may have been checked in for 18 holes on our tee sheet but only played 9 holes. or you may have played a round that is not required to be posted based on Golf Canada’s guidelines. If either of these situations are the case, simply ignore the reminder email.
If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to a member of the professional staff.
