This section of the web site will be your location to find results for our Members events such as our qualifying tournaments, Ladies’ Day and Men’s Day. These results are posted around the Clubhouse but we also want to provide a place for Members to look back at past events or see how they stand in making our inter-sectional teams.
This section is a always a work in progress but the Pro Shop team updates it when possible.
RGC Ladies Win the 86th O’Brien Cup
On Saturday, August 24th, twelve ladies from the Renfrew Golf Club defended our home turf in style by winning the 86th O’Brien Cup. Congratulations to the ladies on the team for their big win! It was the Renfrew Golf Club’s first victory in the O’Brien Cup since 2005 in Petawawa.
The Members of the 2019 winning team are: Mary Ann Abrams, Kate Anderson, Julie Bonsor, Cheryl Campbell, Barb Desilets, Anne MacNeil, Kim McDonald, Cathy McNally, Mary Peer, Kim Vandewouw, Faye Warren and Mary Jo Wertwyn. Thank you to all the caddies who supported our player throughout the day!
It was a great effort by all players on our team and especially Mary Ann Abrams, who shot an 83 for the best round of the day by any player in the event. Just a few weeks ago, it was unknown if Mary Ann would be able to play as she was recovering from a serious wrist injury and only starting playing again in the past two weeks. Congratulations on a great round Mary Ann!
Special thanks to all the volunteers, Club staff, spectators and sponsors who helped make the event such a special event. Our Sponsors for the O’Brien Cup were Renfrew Metro, Jackson-Triggs Estate Wine, Valley Automation & Control Inc., Mikron Woodworking & Machinery, Valley Sales & Equipment, Pat St. Michael Insurance and O’Neil & Bradley’s Insurance.
2019 Club Championship
Our 2019 Club Championship was held on Saturday, August 10th and Sunday, August 11th. Overall the weather was good for the weekend but on Saturday, even though it was warm and sunny, the wind was strong and swirling, making playing conditions quite challenging for the players.
The Ladies’ Club Championship was a close battle all weekend between Mary Jo Wertwyn and Julie Bonsor, as the two of them separated themselves from the rest of the division. On Saturday, Mary Jo Wertwyn shot 83 for a slim one-stroke lead over Julie Bonsor. On Sunday, Mary Jo got off to a good start and stretched her lead to four shots after three holes, but she got into trouble on the 7th hole and suddenly the ladies were tied. It remained close throughout the back 9 and Mary Jo had 2 putts for the win on the 18th hole. Unfortunately for her, she three-putted and the event went to a playoff. Julie Bonsor won her first Ladies Club Championship on the second playoff hole.
In the Ladies B Flight, Kim Vandewouw played a terrific round on Sunday to win by 7 strokes over Emma White. In addition to finishing second in the Ladies B Flight, Emma White is our 2019 Junior Girls’ Club Champion. In the Ladies C flight, Lesley Murray had the lead after the first round and followed it up with a great round on Sunday to win by 6 shots.
In the Men’s Championship, Tim Lemoyre Jr. won his second Club Championship title after shooting an impressive 68 in the tough conditions on Saturday for a 6 shot lead. On Sunday, Jonah O’Connor gave him a little scare at the start after starting birdie-birdie and narrowing the lead, but Tim stayed steady all day and his 73 gave him a comfortable victory.
In the Men’s B Division, Chris Bradley was the most consistent as he shot 81 both days which was good enough for a two shot win over Jamey Larone. Clem Simard played some very impressive golf shooting rounds of 82-81 to dominate the field in the C Division and win by 12 strokes. Our 2019 Men’s Senior Champion is Rob Warren, who shot 71 for the best round of the day on Sunday. In the Super Senior Division, Ken Graham won by 4 strokes over Michel Gaudet. There was no Junior Boy’s Champion this year as no boys were able to participate. Carter Jarrett, our top junior boy, had a conflict with the Ontario Bantam Championship. Carter had a great tournament at Deer Creek where he finished in third place in the 15 and under provincial championship.
Mixed 2-Ball Championship & MY FM Mixed Team Qualifying
On Sunday, June 24th, we held our Mixed 2-Ball Championship. This event is two-person team event where the format played is called the Chapman format. In this format, both players tee off, then play each other’s ball and then finish the hole playing alternate from the best 2nd shot. It is an interesting format and takes good team play from both players to shoot low scores.
The top of the leaderboard was crowded with two teams shooting 77 and another finishing with a 78. Congratulations to Mary-Ann Abrams and Jim Abrams who narrowly beat Michelle Lauzon and Ryan Boudreau through retrogression. Finishing one shot behind was the team of Faye Warren and Rob Warren. Click on the link below for full results and prizes. Winners may pick up their Renfrew Bucks in the Pro Shop.
Note: the top 7 teams qualify for the MY FM event in July but if you wish to attempt to qualify, you may try but you must play with another team attempting to qualify. If intending to qualify, please let the Pro Shop know.
