The 2018 SRC Championship at Saugeen Golf Club featured, for the first time, a practice round

result, the SRC Board have negotiated the availability of a practice round at Devil’s Pulpit on
Wednesday, September 4th, that will include the practice round (with carts), a luncheon and a
reception following the practice round. Cost will be $125, all in. Details will be provided to SRC
teams that qualify for the Championship.

Congratulations to Chris Parris, Captain of the Borden Golf Club SRC team, who has joined the
Senior Ryder Cup Board of Directors. Chris will be a member of the Website Management
