We are looking forward to our 2015 competitions in the Toronto area for the coming season!

Generously spread over 444 acres of ruggedly beautiful country, the course hurtles over terrain that provides adrenalin-pumping elevated tee shots, views of pristine forests, leafy valleys, and ponds teaming with largemouth bass.

The UGAC, established in 2001, is based on the model of longstanding Ukrainian golf associations in Australia and the United States, the latter Ukrainian Golf Association of Great Britain, the Ukrainian Golf Team in Germany, and now most recently the Golf Association of Ukraine.

The UGAC has founding members in Toronto, Montreal, and Winnipeg and is looking to offer golfing opportunities to Ukrainians from across Canada. The UGAC has three main goals. Firstly, the association will organize competitive golfing among our membership staging an annual Canadian individual championship. Secondly, within this competitive context, will provide opportunities for social networking and camaraderie within the broad Ukrainian community in Canada. Thirdly, and most far reaching, is to participate in international golfing events with our parallel golf associations across the world.

Membership is open to Canadians of Ukrainian ancestry, those who have familial relations, and those who through their association with Ukrainians, may be appointed as "honourary Ukrainians". The minimum age to participate is 16. To register for membership, complete the Membership Registration Form as found on our web site at www.ugolf.ca or click here. Younger players are eligible for Junior membership.

Although our events are open to all, our members will enjoy lower cost of participation and value-added benefits. As in previous years, our individual Net Stableford and Gross Stableford Champion Golfers for 2008 will be determined by combining the player’s best score from the first 2 season tournaments with the Finale tournament score.
