We are looking forward to our 2017 competitions in the Toronto area for the coming season!
This year we have planned 3 tournaments to be played at 3 distinctively different courses; all are very popular favourites. Dates and locations are as follow:


 


Season Opening Tournament was held:
Saturday 27 May
Wyndance, Uxbridge, Ontario
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!

Played at the 158 yard, par 3, 3rd hole Winner: Mike KOCUR.

Longest Drive competition
Winner: Mike KOCUR.

Season's Second Tournament was held:
Saturday 12 August
Glencairn Golf Club, Halton Hills, Ontario
Located at 9807 Regional Road 25: west of Toronto, from Hwy 401, exit at Hwy 25 (Exit 320, Milton), take Hwy 25 north a short distance past Campbellville Road, clubhouse entrance is on right (east) side.

It’s been said that Glencairn is the closest you’ll come to Scotland without crossing the Atlantic. From the moment you pass the stone gates and wind your way between rock fences to the majestic multi-turreted clubhouse, you will feel like you just arrived at a Scottish links. Designed by Thomas McBroom, Glencairn’s 27 links-style holes are punctuated by steep pot bunkers and framed by fescue that waves menacingly in the ever-present wind that buffets the Halton Hills. Burns (narrow meandering streams) cut through the heaving landscape of the Niagara Escarpment. You’ll have to be creative on the tight lies that surround the mammoth undulating greens.

Net Stableford category
Winner: Vince GARISTO, 16 hdcp, gross score of 87, for 38 points,
Runner-up: Paul KUSHNIRENKO, 20 hdcp, gross score of 91, for 38 points.

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.
