Chrys Tindale-Club Captain
Our heartfelt gratitude to the Armstrong/Azaria/Minty families, who expertly catered an outstanding sold-out Championship Dinner. They also wish to thank the folks who helped: To our team of BBQ guys, the prep team, Kitchen helpers, the delivery couple, the delicious hors d’ourvres makers, the young servers and set up/clean up team, we appreciate all of your efforts, without volunteerism Dunany would not be the dynamic community we all enjoy.
Dunany Studio Artists
The Dunany Studio Artists hosted a beautiful show and sale at the Clubhouse and raised just over $2700 for the Ross Leslie Scholarship Fund.
Thank you to everyone who came out to the Wentworth Mayor’s Breakfast hosted by the DCC, the strata were stupendous!

Reminder for the Ladies Closing Meeting - Sunday, September 2, 10 a.m.
The final junior regional Golf Quebec tournament of the season was held at Club de Golf Le Blainvillier on August 20. What a spectacular course and great competitors. Scores were a little higher than our juniors Amy and Mark McLeod and Nicole Adams would have liked but a great time was had by all.
Bradley, Amy & Mark McLeod along with Nicole Adams were back at Le Blainvillier on August 21 to participate in a Golf Canada Drive, Chip and Putt event organized by the Optimist Club. These are held across Canada and this was a first for our region - a terrific event for all ages. All four Dunany juniors made it to the finals in at least one of the events where the top two players in each age category faced off. Very well done indeed!
Looking forward to seeing you at prize giving on Saturday to celebrate all the exciting junior achievements in 2018. We are already looking ahead to next season. We would like to field an interclub team to compete at different courses. Growing the next generation of young golfers who love the game and are an integral part of the club and community remains the focus of our program. If you know a child interested in golf, please contact Trudy & Jeff Adams. There are many ways we can include them, including the sponsorship program! email@example.com
Trivia night Friday, August 31, 2018 at 7 p.m. at the Clubhouse!
??? Did You Know???
The first Trivia Nights were started in the 1960's by college students and others as casual parlour games to exchange bits of arcane knowledge and reminisce about ‘pop culture’?
“Tri-viae" meant ‘where three roads meet’ in ancient Rome.
Let's meet at Dunany Club House
on Friday, August 31st at 7 p.m.
where the roads of fun, friendship & fantastic trivial questions abound!
See you there!
If you don't have a team (max.6), come and join up with a few others when you arrive!
