Subject: 2021 Senior Ryder Cup season

From: Gene Gordon, SRC President

The Senior Ryder Cup Board is excited about the resumption of activities for the 2021 season.  Golf Ontario is also planning for a full season of competition.

Over the past few weeks, SRC members have heard of the increased sponsorship support for this year’s Senior Ryder Cup Regional Playoffs and Championship. Sponsorship will see a sizable increase over the 2019 season with more good news to come. Most clubs have advised dates for their 2021 matches, with more to come.

A reminder that eighty (80) member clubs will qualify for this year’s five regional playoff events at the following locations:

DATE                       REGION                  CLUB                                  TIME

August 9th            Central              Whitevale GC                1:00 p.m.

August 12th          Eastern              Brockville CC                1:00 p.m.

August 16th          Georgian           Barrie CC                       1:00 p.m.

August 20th          South West       Maple City CC               1:00 p.m. 

August 24th         Niagara             Brantford G & CC        11:00 a.m.


From the regional playoffs, sixteen (16) member clubs will qualify to play for the Senior Ryder Cup Championship at Whistle Bear on September 13 (practice round) and September 14 (Championship).

As you can appreciate, there may be the need for some fine-tuning to this season’s hosting arrangements, dependent on Government and club health advisories. Captains will be kept advised of any changes.

Stay tuned for more news on the upcoming season.

P.S. Honorary Masters starters Nicklaus, Player and Elder will be on the first tee in 35 days!!
