No. 26: "Ontario Senior Golf Order of Merit"
Did you know?
We were recently reading some information from Golf Ontario about the “Order of Merit” for Senior Golfers, and it came to our attention that the daily Senior Invitational offered 200 points to the winners of these events, all that is needed is that the complete results are forwarded to:
Jesse Mercer, Sport Coordinator, Grow Golf – Jmercer@gao.ca
Jesse will ensure that the points become part of the individuals season long totals.
