We had a large turnout for the Golf Quebec Rules Seminar last Sunday. Francis Duff from Golf Quebec gave us a very informative and fun breakdown of the major changes to the rules of golf. He also played a round with myself, Barb Campbell and Don Sutherland and was very helpful in answering our questions and had some great ideas for the course. The Match and Handicap Committee will be working hard on updating our local rules and course setup to increase the playability and speed of play at our course. Thanks to everyone who turned out and to Fin Wightman for helping setup the clubhouse.
