NEW - Mixed Doubles Comes To Friday Night Curling

  • Did you watch mixed doubles during the Olympic curling telecasts?
  • Were you intrigued but a little puzzled by the game?
  • We’re going to launch a Mixed Doubles curling league at STGCC this season on Friday nights.
  • Mixed Doubles is a competition for curlers (no restrictions) with teams comprised of one male player and one female player.
  • The game plays quickly because each team throws only five rocks.
  • We’re going to start the season with instruction so that everyone is comfortable with the rules and we’ll add short lessons each week to help everyone with strategy.
  • This is a game that very few curlers have played. So we’re all in the same boat.  It’s new, it’s different, it’s fast and it’s fun.
We’re going to preserve the Friday night times that everyone loves, 5:15pm and 7:00pm, with Mixed Doubles at 5:15pm and traditional team curling at 7:00pm. Or, if there is enough demand, we’ll run two draws of mixed doubles. Try the latest craze in the curling world - - get a partner and try the new Mixed Doubles curling game at the Club on Friday nights.

NEW - Curling Centre of Excellence​

The St. Catharines Golf and Country Club is working closely with Curling Canada and the Ontario Curling Council to create a "Curling Centre of Excellence" providing the next generation of curlers a first class training facility. 
 

The St. Catharines Golf & Country Club is excited to bring back our successful Learn to Curl Program this season. What exactly is an 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 and 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. The cost of our Learn to Curl Program is $315 per person. For more information, please contact Curling Manager Peter Scott.
