Ontario Women’s Four-Ball Championship Returns in 2021

Uxbridge, ON — On Monday, September 20th, the prestigious Ladies GC of Toronto welcomes the Ontario Women’s Four-Ball Championship. The field of 84 talented players of all ages, playing in twosomes, will take to the challenging course in hopes of leaving as champions.

 

Notables in the field include Terrill Samuel (2021 Women’s Mid-Am Champion, 2020 Senior Women’s Champion), Emily Zhu (2018 Junior Spring Classic Champion, Team Canada National Junior Squad), and past champions of the event including Ivy Steinberg, Marion Reid, Debbie Court, and Leslie Ferrari.

 

A Stanley Thompson design, the 18-hole course from the back tees is just over 6,000 yards. It’s long and narrow fairways, and small greens make it no easy task to perform well. The prestigious course located in Thornhill is “thrilled to be hosting this year’s Women’s Four-Ball Championship,” expressed Jaime Steedman, Head Golf Professional of Ladies GC of Toronto. It’s always exciting to welcome some of the best golfers in the province to Ladies’, and showcase the incredible mid-September course conditions we’ve been enjoying.” Steedman added, “the club is fresh off hosting the PGA of Ontario Women’s Championship (Sept 13) and the course is in the best shape I’ve seen it, and I am thrilled that the players will get to enjoy it in peak form.”

 

Samuel, Reid, Steinberg, and the rest of the field take to the course starting at 9am. The duo who can handle the tough conditions and tight greens the best, will leave after 18 holes with some special hardware in their possession.
