Men’s Senior Ryder Cup (SRC)

Whitevale has been participating with 99 other clubs from Michigan, New York State and Ontario in a Senior Two-Man Gross Match Play competition. The 100 clubs are divided into 25 divisions, with Whitevale playing against Wolf Run, Baxter Creek and Barcovan Golf Clubs this season. In our four matches against these clubs, we scored 80 of a possible 96 points and gained entry directly into Championship Day, held at Highlands Golf Club in London, Ontario. Our 80 points saw us second only to Oshawa GC’s 82 points.

At Championship Day on Monday, August 28, the Whitevale team was: Dave Walker paired with Barry Catterall, John Trimble with Declan Dunn, Mike McGarragle with Bernie Docking, and Steve Hewitt with Ron Bell. The team met very tough competition but enjoyed the day immensely. The team was matched against the Winner, Cutten Fields,  the 2nd place team Lookout Point, and the two teams tied for 3rd, London Highland and North Halton. Congratulations to the entire Whitevale team.
Other team members who played in the division matches were: Larry Valianes, Steve Rodriguez Sr., Tim Rutherford, Pat Lamanna and Walt Lemon. Everyone played at least one match.

John Johnston MACKENZIE

Former Whitevale Member John Mackenzie has passed away.

MACKENZIE, John Johnston John passed away peacefully on Tuesday, August 15, 2017 in his 86th year. John, loving husband of 58 years to June. Amazing father to Cathy (Carlos) and Bill (Catherine). Adoring and immensely proud Boppy to Melanie and Rachel and Grumpy to Emma (Peter) and Molly. John was the brother to the late Mary Deak and David Mackenzie. John had many careers in sales and was successful in all of them. He was kind, genuine and possessed a great sense of humour and engaged all who encountered him. John was the eternal optimist and had a gift for seeking solutions and never focusing on the problem. This led to the odd misstep which included driving around Toronto in reverse (small problem with the transmission). John had an enquiring mind and led him to try many new ventures and hobbies from jewellry making to hydrogen fuel cell experimentation. John's family would like to thank the staff at Markhaven Home for Seniors and Markham Stouffville Hospital who helped him through his struggle with Alzheimer's in the last months of his life. We invite family and friends to join us in a celebration of John's life to be held on Sunday, September 10th from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. The celebration will be held at 4042 Vandorf Sideroad, Stouffville.
