Midland, ON – Marion Reid (The Links at Dover Coast) wins the 2022 Ontario Senior Women’s Championship after three days of fantastic golf from Midland Golf and Country Club. Reid led the field after each round and finished the tournament in dominating fashion with an enormous 12-stroke lead.
“I really enjoyed being out there on the course with the ladies. Senior golf is all about encouraging others to play better, and that’s what the ladies did for me this week,” said Reid when asked about winning the Senior Women’s title.
Kathie Houghton (Georgian Bay Club) also played great golf this week as she would take home the Silver Medal, while Sandy Byckowski (Brampton Golf Club Ltd) would claim the Bronze Medal in the Stroke Play Gross Championship.
Some excitement for the host club today, as Kim Dubeau (Midland Golf & Country Club) rightfully earned herself the A-Flight Championship title due to her consistent play throughout the week. Dubeau finished the week 7-strokes ahead of the rest of the A-Flight field, including the week’s low score (79) for the division.
Congratulations to some of our other winners; Kathie Houghton (Georgian Bay Club) Stroke Play Gross – 60 and Above, Janelle Fairgrieve (The Links at Dover Coast) Stroke Play Gross – 70 and Above, and Ann Sullivan (Vespra Hills Golf Club) Stroke Play Net – A-Flight.
