Message from the President

Last Updated: 13 May 2016


I would like to take this opportunity and thank our outgoing president, Carl Girard, for his hard work, commitment and dedication in achieving tremendous success for the association over the past six years. Also, I thank Matt Arnold and Shawn Zweers, outgoing Secretary and Communication's Director respectively, for their outstanding contributions to the association.
With that, I am pleased to welcome the two new executive committee members; Mike Robinson (Secretary) and John Smith (Communication Director). I am certain that they are very excited to join the executive committee. They bring a wealth of golf knowledge, experience and fresh ideas, and I am confident that their contribution to the association’s future will transform our club to even greater heights.

Folks, we are planning for a busy golf year and hopefully we will receive a good and longer golf season. Without stealing the Tournament Director’s thunder, in addition to holding our traditional events for which details will be provided by Kirk Mellor, we will investigate a two-person best ball tournament for next year. Also, as some of you may recall, we held a matchplay tournament last year though it could not be completed for one reason or another. If interest exists, we would like to bring a matchplay tournament back as well. Please check www.cfbega.ca regularly and let us know any suggestions or comments you may have.
I encourage our members to get out, play more golf and support our local golf clubs. In doing so, please use the services available including practice facilities, lessons and social activities after a great round of golf. Please be courteous, observe golf etiquette, and most of all, embody and demonstrate higher standards of conduct and values.


I will do my best in communicating our association in a positive light, increase membership, and hopefully introduce more fun events for all our membership to get out and enjoy more golf.
If anyone has any creative ideas towards improving our association, do not hesitate to contact me or any members of the executive, and we will bring them up in our meetings and consider.
I wish everyone a great golf year and I look forward to seeing you at various events in the coming year.
Yours Aye,
Mohamed Ali Gudal
