Season Opening Tournament was held:
Saturday 4 June
Crosswinds, Burlington, Ontario
Located at 6621 Guelph Line, on east side, midway between Hwys 401 and 407.

Framed within the majestic Niagara Escarpment, Crosswinds Golf & Country Club features an 18-hole championship golf course in Burlington that extends across 200 serene acres. Ponds and sand bunkers are strategically placed to challenge shot and club selection at Crosswinds. The bent grass greens putt true, with enough undulation to make reading them and judging speed top priorities. The course tends to reward accuracy over length, as each shot sets up the next.

Located at 450 Durham Road 21: from Hwy 404 exit at Bloomington Road East/Hwy 47 to traffic lights in Goodwood, turn right onto Goodwood Road/Regional Road 21, clubhouse entrance is on left side past 4th Concession.

The first course in Canada designed by Greg Norman, is meticulously shaped to take advantage of the original terrain and sandy rock faces of the reclaimed gravel pit upon which it was built. Large waste bunkers, loose rock outcroppings, convey the aura of playing the American south-west. Visually stunning!

Runners-up: Al BABAIPOUR, 19 hdcp, gross score of 91, for 39 points.

Play all the golf holes you’ve dreamed about! Wooden Sticks is more than simply a place to golf. It is a tribute to the rich history and grand traditions of this great game. In designing Wooden Sticks, architect Mr. Ron Garl and his team worked diligently to ensure that every aspect of your golf experience reflects the spirit found in some of today’s most famous golf holes. In fact, 12 of the 18 holes were each inspired by a different famous golf hole from the PGA. Together with the balance of the course, they present a challenging and unforgettable golf experience. During your round, you will envision yourself playing off a road in Scotland, across a famous creek in Georgia, onto an island in Florida, and through pine forests in New Jersey.

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.
