We here at the Great Lakes Tour would like to wish you and yours a wonderful, safe and Happy Holidays. Thank you for your support in 2015 and as Christmas approaches we have a few BIG presents under the Tree and we can't wait to open them for all to see.
Our goal is to continue the development of the next generation of professional golfers in Canada by providing a "Tour Like" experience at the events we conduct and through our partnerships. We promise that 2016 will have MAJOR opportunities available to our members. Stay tuned for these imminent announcements as the winter progresses. You WILL be very excited......
The 2016 Great Lakes Tour Schedule will feature 8 to 12 one day events, 4 two day events and a re-vitalized TOUR Championship. The Southern Ontario Open will remain on the schedule with a probable date of the week following the RBC Canadian Open in July. We hope this later date avoids any schedule conflicts and full confirmation of date and location will be set in the first week of January.
2016 Membership program will be released in January and we anticipate a tiered system with payment options available. Stay tuned for full details.
We continue to work through the Holidays to update and freshen up our website and have it ready for January. If you visit our site you'll see some cosmetic work being done on particular pages. It now has a responsive mobile theme that's great for Ipad and tablet viewing. Approximately 45% of our online viewers are using mobile devices. During the 2015 season our new look website, which launched on June 1, had 54,509 total page views with our livescoring page accounting for 17.66% of all views. We will continue to invest time into our website to attract new advertisers and sponsors while keeping member and public experience a priority.
Here's to a prosperous 2016 season and please enjoy every moment with your loved ones... memories only happen once.
All the Best and see you in the New Year!
