CORNWALL, Ontario – C-19 has changed everyday life since this past March.
There is not much we do that hasn’t been affected in one way or another. Although Golf was one activity that could be enjoyed while maintaining self distancing. On the other hand, golf too had several of its own changes that were quickly adapted to. One being how Summerheights Golf Links conducted their Club Championship Competitions while continuing to maintain Self Distancing and eliminating the chance of exceeding bubble or gathering limitations as set by the Province.
The 2020 Club Championship was held over a two-week period commencing August 23 through September 5th. Players were required to play one round of 18 holes on each the MacLennan & Matheson Courses. Prior to tee off competitors reported to the Starter that he / she would be counting this round toward their 2-day total.

Additionally, all 3 or the entire foursome could enter & register their respective scores to qualify for the Championships.
