The 18-hole course from the back tees is just over 6,000 yards. With four sets of tees, the course is interesting for players of all skill levels and winds along the East Don River.
Ladies’ Golf Club of Toronto is North America’s only remaining private golf club established by women for women. The Club was founded in 1924 by Ada Mackenzie.
In the early 20th century, it wasn’t easy for female golfers to get access to tee times and practice facilities. After playing at women’s clubs in Britain, Ada set about creating a women's golf club in Toronto. After much hard work and fundraising, Ladies’ Golf Club of Toronto Ltd. was established in Thornhill in 1924.
In 1925, nine holes were available for play. The official opening event on August 23, 1926, was a match between Ada Mackenzie and Helen Paget of Royal Ottawa Club on the new Stanley Thompson designed course.
As the scores started flowing in, a pattern started to emerge... competition was going to be tough as the numbers were coming in low!
The Champ Flight was won by Tour newcomer Riley Gross who fired the low score of the day, 69. Chris Willis was four back shooting 73 and sharing in the drama was Ryan Taylor also posting 73 to capture third spot.
Chris Corvese would won the A Flight with a solid 73. Steve Dranfield was hot on his heels, but falling just short posting 76. Andrew Susands would record 79 strokes for third place.
B Flight's Arlo Hugessen was throwing darts all day and posted a sweet swinging 76 for top spot. Brett Parry and Bill Bates would share scores of 80 and, after card matching, Brett would secure a second place finish and Bill would slide into third position.
Carl Thompson of the C Flight would carry a comfortable 88 into the clubhouse for a first place finish. Rod Skelton was next in line shooting 93 and Sandy Zajac would fall short by one stoke and capture third place.
Seniors' Flight would be dominated by low scores. Todd Stones would glide through the day recording 76 for the crown, John Stanford was one back, carding 77 for the second spot. Leo Henhoeffer would card a Net 58 for first place, followed by Atul Asthan with Net 66.
Women's Flight had Christa Brown post a sizzling Net 67 for the victory!
