Golf Shop News, September 4th
Look What our Members are doing!!!
It’s been a while since we’ve had a Hole in One at Lookout Point. That changed this past week as we celebrated Holes in One by RICK CAMPBELL, MICHAEL FOSTER & ANDY GLAVAC
THANK YOU !!!
On behalf of the staff who had an opportunity to take part in last week’s staff golf outing we want to THANK each and every member who donated toward the prizing for the day! A great day was had by all - we have no idea who won the tournament - at the end of the day what mattered was getting together as a group to celebrate our 2019 season before our student employees head back to school for the fall.
In a couple weeks time we will be running a small test event called the Lookout Point Cup. As a Games Committee, we have had an excellent season with all of our member events highlighted by record participation numbers and lots of positive comments and feedback. The Lookout Point Cup is a Ryder Cup style competition between 4 teams led by our Professional Staff. The event will be played on the weekend of September 21st and 22nd (with an opening ceremony on Friday, September 20th). The event itself will have minimal impact on the tee sheet as the field size is limited to a MAXIMUM of 48 participants!!! Each team will be made up of a MINIMUM of 8 players (minimum 2 Ladies) and a MAXIMUM of 12 players. We expect this event to sell out quickly, so if you are interested please don’t delay in registering. More information can be found under the Events Section of Member Central or by clicking the below link:
Our last Member Event of the 2019 Calendar is our Closing Field Day on Saturday, October 5th. Registration is now open for this event. Sign up as an individual or a team. More information on the format for the event can be found by clicking on the following link:
What’s Happening at the Club This week…
We have a very busy couple of week’s to start September. As a result, we wanted to break down some of the happenings at the course over the next few days.
September 6th, 7th & 8th
The 97th playing of “The Quad” tournament. This tournament is the oldest running amateur competition in North America. It is contested between Lookout Point Country Club, St. Catharines Country Club, Lockport Town & Country Club & Shorewood Country Club. This event has a deep history and we are looking forward to hosting this year. If you are around the club this weekend please be sure to make our guests feel welcome!
On September 9th the Driving Range & Practice Facility will be closed for the majority of the day for scheduled maintenance. The golf course is open however, so we look forward to seeing you on course!
On Tuesday, September 10th we are hosting the 30th Annual Jayne’s Industries Golf Tournament which is supporting the Hamilton Food Share charity. The Hamilton Food Share is an organization that healthy and good product deemed surplus and un-salable by food industry standards and redirects it onto the tables of the people who need it the most. Last year, they distributed over 3.35 million pounds of food. The event is a 12:30 shotgun, with limited tee times for members available in a morning crossover and reopening after the event has concluded.
Wednesday, September 11th is the 19th Annual Lookout Point Senior Invitational. Our Senior Invitational continues to attract some of the absolute best senior players in Ontario. This year we have a very impressive field of participants and we are looking forward to a great day of friendship and competition.
On Sunday, September 14th our Ladies Section hosts their annual TOMBSTONE tournament. Registration is still open and we are expecting a spooktacular day both on and off the course.
