Message from the President – Susan Stanley

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are all having a good winter, but it is now time to start thinking about summer golf. Yay!!

Thank you to Hildy Dyck for generously hosting our summer wrap up meeting at her West Hawk Lake cottage.  And thank you to the awesome social committee – Hildy Dyck and Brenda Burch – for a wonderful closing luncheon and for the many great meals they have prepared over the past few years. Darlene Patterson and Margaret Pilchar will be taking over the social committee for 2018.

Golf Course Update:

As you probably know by now, Lakeland Golf Group has taken over the ownership of the sports facilities at Falcon Lake.  This includes the tennis, mini golf, lawn bowling and the golf course. Congratulations to Jeff Heiland who has been appointed Head Professional at Falcon Lake Golf Course.

As of April 26th, Evelyn reports the club house is all under tarps with work going on inside and out. The last that she heard, everything is on time and going well.  The expected opening is in early July.  Until then, the club will use a trailer for the pro shop.  If the building is not ready once the Ladies League is underway, we may have to find an alternative site for our post game storytelling and refreshments.

Check out the following website:  https://www.lakelandgolfmanagement.com/our-golf-courses/falcon-lake-golf-course. Notice the new multi-game passes!

Falcon Lake Ladies Spring Charity Golf Tournament (Ladies Classic)

The first big event up for the summer is the annual Ladies Charity Tournament on June 2nd.  We are hoping for a big turnout and I encourage everyone to invite friends and family to this worthwhile and fun event.  What a great way to kick off the summer!

You have probably heard that our new clubhouse will not be ready in time for this tournament, so we will be holding the dinner at the Whiteshell Community Club.  This has added a couple of logistical problems and we may be looking for some volunteers to help on the day of the tournament.  I will keep you posted.

A number of you have generously donated items for our silent auction, which will be our main source of fundraising for this year.  If at all possible, please drop off silent auction donations at Evelyn’s house by May 28th.  More details on page 11-15. If for some reason, you are not able to meet this date can you let me know and I will make other arrangements to get it from you.  Evelyn’s address is:  37 Fairway Crescent in Falcon Lake town site.

Advertisements for the Falcon Lake Ladies Golf Leaguehave been placed (free of charge) in The Whiteshell Echo.Unfortunately, the Lake of the Woods Area Newswill not be able to run our ad this year. According to Diane Schwartz Williams, they’re getting so many requests that they’re having to limit advertising space to individual interests (as originally intended). At this point we don’t have a budget to put in an ad at cost.

Our Deepest Sympathies

On behalf of the Falcon Lake Ladies Golf Association I would like to pass on our deepest sympathies to the Lakeland Golf and Falcon Lake Golf Course Director Al Scott whose wife recently passed away. Our thoughts go out to Al and his family.

Keep a watchful eye out for more information about the Falcon Ladies League over the coming weeks. See the website. Details on page 4 -5 on how to do that.

I look forward to seeing everyone on June 2nd at the Ladies Charity Tournament, or at our weekly golf rounds starting June5th.

Best regards,

Susan Stanley

  • Prize donations are greatly appreciated.
    • They are asking all members of the ladies’ league to solicit an item that would be suitable for a silent auction.

  • Thank you to Darlene Mulligan for her patience with all the changes that she had to make and of course a big thank you for the awesome job she did on the poster.
  • Also, with the celebration of 25 years of this tournament’s existence, Evelyn thought it would be fun to dig up the history of this tournament, along with some of the beginning members and donator’s. If anyone has anything they would like to add, please let Evelyn know (or Doris Ross). They have the tournament binders to research as well.
  • The question was put out at the August, 2017 meeting re: Are there other charities that the classic could sponsor? E.g. kids in the community; woman’s health; Falcon Lake Medical Center (which is not funded by the government); Canada Day fireworks. Susan Stanley, Evelyn Proceviat and Jackie McIvor formed a committee to review and make a decision by October/2017.
