Golf Canada and the Royal Canadian Golf Association "Thank You"

by: Rob Laing, Governor, Golf Canada and RCGA

On behalf of Golf Canada and the Royal Canadian Golf Association I wanted to say thanks to everyone at the Quilchena Golf & Country Club for hosting the 2011 Royale Cup Canadian Junior Girls Golf Championship.   It was an exciting week of very good golf from these young women.  I am sure that we will all keep our eyes on the names in this tournament and follow their progress.

I had an opportunity to send notes to my fellow officials and all of them wanted me to pass on their appreciation to everyone in making this tournament a tremendous success.  All of them told me that Quilchena did ourselves proud.  They were very impressed with the course and its condition.  As well, the service and support in the clubhouse was second to none.  Most importantly, our volunteers did a fantastic job.  Susan Truscott and Gary Anderson along with all of the tournament chairs worked hard to make this happen.   As we all know, these types of tournaments cannot possibly happen without everyone pulling together and this certainly happened last week and throughout the months leading up to the tournament.

As well, the tournament staff appreciated the support and they had said that they would love to come back to Quilchena.

As I had mentioned in a couple of my speeches, it made me feel very proud to be a member of our club and congratulations to all for making this such a huge success.
