whitevale GOLF Club Hosts The
Wronski Cann Group Open
Whitevale ON (June 01, 2015) - This week, Whitevale Golf Club, welcomed the GTA AM Tour players for the Wronski Cann Group Open. Whitevale is an outstanding, private golf facility, which has been operating since 1958. It is truly a hidden gem. Tucked away in the heritage town of Whitevale, and surrounded by the best nature has to offer. Nine years out from a $3 million golf course renovation, the changes have matured and, from all accounts, are fantastic. With their golf course renovation debt retired, the club undertook a new project: an $8 million revitalization that included a beautiful new clubhouse and practice facility. The 78 players in attendance all agreed that the golf course, and brand new clubhouse, were excellent....!.
