Record of participation in Montreal Association tournaments
In 2017, the Montreal Regional golf Association had a record participation in its amateur and senior tournaments. More than 876 golfers participated in our activities, an increase of 12% compared to 2016. The 2018 season also looks interesting with the arrival of new golf clubs for these tournaments.
Despite the snow and the cold of January that falls on our heads, the Montreal Regional Association is already at work for the next season. André Burgoyne (headline photo), the tournament manager, has already completed his schedule for the 2018 season, for amateurs and seniors.
The season will begin May 22th with the D1 tournament, at the 2000 International Golf Club (120 golfers). This will be the first of the season and, in addition, players will be able to improve their differential for the 2017 Provincial Order of Merit. This course, known for its early and late-season debut, is a challenge for golfers with huge and wavy greens. Note the beautiful scenery, close to the US border.
Pinegrove will host the second tournament of the season.
Afterwards, the Pinegrove Golf Club (May 28th, 136 golfers) did us the honor. to receive the D2 in a continuous tournament. The number is limited, do not wait too long to register. For buffs, remember holes 9 and 18, which are probably two of the most picturesque holes in Quebec.
The D3 (Champêtre, June 18) and D4 (Whitlock, August 13) will be two tournaments that will accommodate cross-runs in the morning and afternoon for 168 golfers.
