May 26

RGC hosts its annual Lee & Larry Sharpe Memorial Tournament on May 26. Before the event this season, there will be a ceremony to honour Lee Sharpe and dedicate a beautiful addition to the patio. Lee’s family has generously donated a beautiful picnic table to the club to honour Lee Sharpe, who was a well-known member and large supporter of the Club and community.

The format has changed to a two-person 6-6-6 team event this season for both the Women’s and Men’s flights. This format is similar to the format played in our Solheim Cup and Ryder Cup events except that it is stroke play, not match play. Members may sign up for this event by contacting the pro shop and signing up on the list by the locker rooms.
