The Stanley Thompson Classic
The Thompson Golf Classic is held annually at a golf course designed by Stanley Thompson. It is an opportunity to spend a day with other Society members, member clubs, architects and friends and to experience firsthand the challenge, excitement and classic design elements of a Thompson layout.
The 2019 Classic was hosted by Dundas Valley Golf and Curling Club, designed by Thompson in 1929. The beautiful layout retains much of Thompson's hand and was a wonderful location for a fun day of golf.
The Stanley Thompson Society is excited that the annual Thompson Classic will be held at Oakdale Golf and Country Club on Monday, September 21, 2020. The field of 128 players included special guests Marlene Streit, Cathy Sherk and Gary Cowan members of the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame and golf course architects Christine Fraser, Doug Carrick, Keith Cutten, Kevin Holmes, Robert Kains and Steve Vanderploeg. Fifteen member clubs were represented on in the teams.
