Venue for Wyder Cup Confirmed

This year's task of finding a venue for both days at the Wyder was not an easy one. Firstly, we were surprised that St-Andrews had gotten another tournament for that day. Although it was not a huge tournament, they needed to use the banquet facilities and I don't think we would have mixed well with people that wanted their own party. Then the search started for another venue. The criteria was pretty strict. We needed a golf course that could accommodate both our golf and our antics. Obviously we have outgrown a 9 hole course just with our numbers (we are anticipating 84 golfers for Saturday). St-Andrew's was the best course because of the extra 9 holes for the ladies' Wyder as is presented a relaxed atmosphere where the pace of play did not matter as the 9 holes were basically sole property of the women for the day. There are no other golf courses in the area that offer this set up. That's when the search for the Saturday venue started to heat up. Now we had a little problem of finding a course that was not booked. We finally came to Cardinal that could accommodate us by providing a more 'relaxed'  venue for the ladies' Wyder in the 18 hole par three course and a great place to hold the party with good food. All this within a 10 minute drive of both the hotel and 2-Mountains. There is also a plan in action for the ladies who would like to play a 'real' course to cross over and play the front nine following their 'warm-up' on the par 3 course. This has now become an option. Talk to your captain.

For Friday, Day One of competition, the story was a little different. Through CanAm golf, we had a wonderful course booked. The Green Valley golf course was the perfect venue for us. With its great layout, pristine conditions, amazing clubhouse and an unbeatable price ($59), it was a no-brainer to pick this place. Unfortunately, a couple of weeks ago during my St-Andrews' Friday round, I got the bad news from Charles Bourque, president of CanAm Golf), who told me that with the pending sale of Green Valley, they could no longer guarantee our tee-off times and price. Plan B was activated and Deux-Montagnes looked like our place of choice. This was our original choice back in May but the lure of Green Valley had taken it away from the radar. Now that Deux-Montagnes has fallen through because of late tee-off times, the venue is Cardinal for both days.  This year team Canada is repatriating some of our players as their stint on the American side was only temporary.
