Senior Ryder Cup 2023 President’s Spring Newsletter


The Senior Ryder Cup Board of Directors and I would like to welcome you back to our twenty-fourth season of senior men’s competitive match play competition. Our organization has settled into the post Covid period without restraints with an excess of 160 teams across southern Ontario with some clubs in Michigan, New York State and Quebec. We welcome a number of new clubs as well as new venues for our playoffs and the Championship event in September.

 We wish everyone a successful competitive golfing season where, once again, the top two teams in each division will proceed to the Regional Playoffs. The top three teams from each Regional Playoffs will advance to the two-day Championship at Brampton Golf Club.
