Chairman's Message (2019)

On behalf of the 2019 committee, I would like to welcome you to the Doodlebug website and extend an invitation to join us for the 67th Annual Doodlebug Golf Tournament.

It is with great pleasure we announce this year’s tournament will be in Kananaskis, August the 16th and 17th. The beautiful courses, coupled with the magnificent Mt Kidd Manor, situated in the courtyard of the Delta Hotel, should ensure a fantastic event.

With the tough times this industry has been experiencing, it was crucial to us that we find ways to make this event something attainable to all within our industry. The Committee is already hard at work covering all bases so you can come and enjoy the majestic back drop of the Rocky Mountains.

I would encourage everyone to register early, as I believe this year, with the tournament being in August, and the proximity to Calgary, the Doodlebug will sell out. Register now.

There will be Tee-times starting Friday morning on both Lorrette and Mt Kidd courses for the Doodlebug flights. Golfers in the main event will have the unique opportunity to play both course over the weekend. Our guests will also have the opportunity to play these courses.

After a sensational day spent on the course, we will enjoy a casual welcome reception back at the Delta Lodge.

Saturday’s Tee-times begin early for those fighting for the coveted ceramic in each Flight, along with the more casual Chucks event participants as well.

Guest will have the opportunity to either golf on Saturday, or attend the Brunch, followed by a day at the spa, hiking, or just relaxing and taking in the beautiful surroundings of the Rocky Mountains.

After the day on the course there will be a formal sit down dinner with entertainment, refreshments and the awards.

I would like to thank the 2019 committee for their dedication to ensuring the 67th Doodlebug is going to be a great event and experience for all that attend.

I look forward to seeing old faces and to meeting new ones.

Kind regards,
Geoff Castle

Geoff Castle, 67th Chairman
