The events, which include a round of golf, informal meeting and dinner, kick off Tuesday, June 2 at Guelph's Victoria Park East Golf Club. They continue Tuesday, July 14 at the Flamborough Hills Golf Club, Wednesday, Aug. 19 at the Deerfield Golf Club in Oakville, and Monday, Sept. 28 at Woodstock's Craigowan Golf Club. The September event is better known as the Taylor-Barnes tournament. The respective host superintendents for these events are Jason Sewell, Joe Adams, Ian McIsaac and Jerry Richard.

The annual cost of membership to WOGSA is $ 25 if paid by the second golf meeting. The fee wil increase to $ 35 after that.
