Congratulations Niagara Knights!

The Niagara Knights won their first Ontario Colleges Athletic Association (OCAA) women's curling title since 2013. Niagara was the class of the competition during the round robin with a first-place record of 4-1. But Niagara had a flare for the dramatic the remainder of the competition. The Knights needed an extra end to defeat Humber 8-7 in the semis, then scored three in an extra end to down Fanshawe 10-7 in the gold medal game.

Fanshawe forced an extra end with three straight singles, but the Knights – skip Chelsea Brandwood, Beamsville; vice Courtney Smith, St. Catharines; second Renee Boyce, St. Catharines; lead Brooke Fairbanks, Thorold; lead Andrea Miettinen, Welland – were flawless in the final frame. Congratulations Coach Lorelle!

Niagara scored three to win its fourth provincial curling championship and first since 2013.

New Energy | New People | New Ideas

The St. Catharines Golf & Country Club is excited to launch our new Adult Learn to Curl Program for the 2017/2018 season.

What exactly is an adult learn-to-curl program? As the name suggests, this program is geared to adults new to the sport or re-entering the sport after a prolonged absence. Participants receive weekly instruction from our enthusiastic, friendly & trained instructors about the delivery, sweeping, etiquette, and strategy. By the end of the program, our new curling members have acquired the necessary skills to progress into our experienced club leagues.

We provide our new curling members with a safe, ‘inclusive’ environment to try curling at the St. Catharines Golf & Country Club. Our goal is to encourage and support their transition into our more experienced leagues.  Upon graduation, new curlers will be exposed to the wonderful camaraderie, physical activity, and competition that this sport has to offer while fostering an accepting club-wide environment where all individuals are welcomed.

Beyond gaining rapid skill and technical development and making social connections, participants will be made to feel valued and will establish a strong sense of belonging to our club.

  • Program play: Sunday Mornings: 10:30am to 12:30pm
  • REGISTRATION - Please register through Program Coordinator Daniel Frans
  • Program Cost: Session 2 (9 weeks starting January 28, 2018 @ $175 + HST
