Ontario Wins Ada Mackenzie Matches

The Ontario Senior Women’s Ada Mackenzie Matches Team was victorious with a 12-8 win over the squad from Upper New York. The matches are an annual two-day event and were hosted this year at the Heron Point Golf Links in Ancaster, Ont.

Ontario’s championship team consisted of: Debbie Court, Carolyn Gallinger, Shelley Lothian, Mei Wang, Sandy Byckowski, Denise Schaefer, Kim Legge, Jayne Chalmers, Judith Kyrinis and Meredith Standford.

The Ada Mackenzie Matches have been conducted since 1960 and are an annual team event with Upper New York State. The format for the competition consists of two match-play rounds. The first day consists of Chapman-format team matches. Chapman format is where both players drive, then hit each other’s tee shot for the second shot, before the best ball is selected and players play alternately on the selected ball for the remainder of the hole. The second day features Better-Ball matches.
