Stephane Dubois holds off a surging Derek Gillespie to Win the Paris Championship
Paris (ON) - On Tuesday June 21 and Wednesday June 22, the Great Lakes Tour made a stop at Paris Grand Golf Club in Paris (ON) for the Paris Championship. The Azinger Design layout has been a popular stop on the Tour for many years and always delivers a dramatic finish.
This visit was no exception as Great Lakes Tour members in the field had much to play for. The current relationship with Quebec based Circuit Canada Pro Tour (CCPT) has created a buzz among members and the Top 30 on the Great Lakes Tour National Order of Merit at the conclusion of the Paris Championship will gain automatic entry to both the $50,000 Desjardins Insurance Challenge at Wyndance Golf Club June 28-29 and the $100,000 Promutuel Insurance Quebec Open July 7-10....
Lindsay (ON) - 13 years ago marked the first time that the Great Lakes Tour visited Oliver's Nest Golf Club near Lindsay (ON). It was September 11, 2003 and Tour Alumni Brad Fritsch, Zoltan Veress and Martin Price played in a group that featured a round of 28-33-61 by Veress.

On Tuesday June 7th, The Great Lakes Tour returned to Oliver's Nest for the first time in 10 years with a new look and a new group of young professionals. GolfNorth Series #3 was the tournament and is the third of seven events in the season long series. 38 players were competing in the 18 hole stroke play competition...
Nottawa (ON) - On Thursday June 2nd the Great Lakes Tour visited GolfNorth Properties' Batteaux Creek Golf Club for the first time in tour history. Batteaux Creek is located in the small town of Nottawa (ON) just south of Collingwood (ON). The par 72 layout that stretches out over 7,000 yards was the site of GolfNorth Series Event #2.
The 18 hole stroke play competition was the second of seven events in the GolfNorth Series and featured a very deep 45 player field.
As scores began to trickle in through nine holes, it seemed that Batteaux Creek was winning the battle against par until 2015 Paris Championship winner, John Maley of Sudbury (ON) posted a stunning 4 under par 32 at the halfway point. His back nine eventualy cooled down and Maley settled for an 18 hole total of 3 under par 69...
