PRESIDENT’S LETTER 2019
   

 

First I would like to introduce myself.  I am Shirlee Weeks your new President. I have golfed in this league for nine years in which I have been on the executive in various positions for eight. That being said I would like to welcome back our member and extend a welcome to our new members.  I have to think that we are all anticipating the snow to go away and golf to start.  

Looking forward to seeing new and old friends at our Golf Tee on May 3,2019 at 7PM at the Haliburton Curling Club.  Please join us and bring along a friend or two who would like to golf.

Just a little remember for the ladies who signed up for Best Ball Bash last year and it was rained out.  Your $30 fee will be put towards your 2019 membership fee so just pay the balance.  Might be a good time to pay for this years Best Ball Bash.

A quick note about GAO.  Please find our new page that explains all you get when you are a members of the Golf Association Of Ontario. 

Membership needs to be paid by May 23, 2019 if possible.

The annual Registration form is now up on our website on the membership Page and ready for you to fill out. We are encouraging you to use online registration form and to send your fee by e-transfer.

If you choose to print the form and send a cheque, you should note that we are asking you to send your hard copy form and cheque to two different places. This helps our Membership Chair and Treasurer.

I would like to invite all our members to come out to our Best Ball Bash and Annual General Meeting (AGM) on September 24,2019.  Golf will be at Blairhampton  Golf  Course and dinner at the Peppermill to follow. We do hope that our Summer/members will join us for this fun event and support your league.

  Instructions for Completing Membership Form
   

 

1.  Go to www.hhwgl.ca and click on Membership

2. The form will open and you can fill it in. The dollar amount doesn’t automatically calculate so, if required, you need to manually put in the total. You can choose to pay by cheque or eTransfer - it’s just a tick box and does NOT automatically take you anywhere to do the transfer. Please be sure to tick the relevant box so we know how you are paying.

3a. When you get to the bottom you have a choice to send it in electronically or print it. To send electronically there will be a box to fill in a code.  You’ve all seen this type of code box on other forms such as ticket purchases.  All that does is prevent automatic dialers from inundating us.  

3b. Fill in the code and click the ‘submit’ button.   If, by chance, you don’t get a “Thank-you your form has been submitted” it will return you to the top of your filled in form again.  Scroll to the bottom and there will be a new code.  Fill that one in and click submit again.  Note: If you want to keep a copy print it before you click submit.

4. If you wish you can print and mail the form to Lynne Brady and the cheque to Tracey Dyson or bring both to the Icebreaker Tee. Addresses are on the Registration page.
