Convener - Garry Jenkins
Members play once per week , normally on a Tuesday, with Tee-Off times generally scheduled for a 9:30am start. The average number of players range from 4-6 foursomes. Players are rotated each week to different foursomes. Some members golf on a bi-weekly basis only, or only on a part time basis.
The mission statement for PROBUS Golf is as follows:
“If you can bend over and pick up a ball you are qualified for acceptance into the group. Hitting is secondary.”

Welcome to the Applewood Probus 2024 Golf Season

We will be golfing this year at Mount Nemo Golf Club located at 5377 Walkers Line, Burlington, ON L7M 0P9.

Games are played on every Tuesday morning starting around 9:30 am. We usually have between 16 and 20 golfers play each week. Foursomes are changed each week to enable us to meet more Probus members. All skill levels are welcome – especially new golfers
Mount Nemo Golf Club is one of the GTA’s most scenic golf courses. Nestled beneath the towering cliffs of Mt. Nemo, the club offers a unique golfing experience. The spectacular setting provides golfers with an 18 hole championship layout as well as many breathtaking views of the surrounding scenery. At Mount Nemo Golf Club, rolling terrain and tree-lined fairways combined with strategically placed bunkers and water hazards will test the shot-making skills of every golf enthusiast.

Founded in 1973, Mount Nemo Golf Club offers one of the most enjoyable golf experiences in the Greater Toronto Area. The Toronto Sun has even presented the course the Silver Award in the category of “Best Value Golf Course in the GTA".

Why are we thinking about golf so soon? Well, the season starts in about 3 months. Mount Nemo offers memberships of 15, 30 and 45 games. These are available now and usually they sell the maximum number of memberships fairly quickly. If interested please consider soon. Unlike a number of golf courses in the GTA, Mount Nemo allows us to book tee times for the entire golf season, so we know that we have a game and at what times. We also do not have to prepay, as is happening at other golf courses (unless you get the discounted membership). In order to plan with Mount Nemo, I need to know how many golfers plan to play at Mount Nemo. This will allow me to negotiate with the club to get the best tee times etc. If you are interested in playing at Mount Nemo, please let me know by February 15. You are not committing to playing every week, just to have a desire to play. Each week you will be asked if you want to play 2 weeks hence. That is not firm until about week prior to the golf date. Even then, if an emergency happens, accommodations can be made.

For more information on Mount Nemo please see their website or contact me at or 905 820 2827

Hope to see you on the golf course.

On October 10th, 8 hardy souls braved the elements to play one more round of golf at Mount Nemo.

Applewood Probus 2023 Annual Golf Tournament

The annual Probus golf tournament was held this year on Tuesday. September 26, 2023 at the Mount Nemo Golf Club.  Twenty 23 golfers teed off and 2 others joined us for the lunch that followed.
A round of best ball was played.  Each member shot a ball and the best was selected to be shot next.  Each golfer had to have a least 3 tee shots during the round.  Scores ranged from 64 to 78.  The top 3 teams were between 64 and 67.  A close game.
Tournament winners were the team of Steve Jones, Bill Rivers, Tony Hart and Garry Jenkins.  As usual the overall winners were everyone who came out on a warm early fall day to share fun and fellowship with other Probus friends
Lunch followed at the golf club.  Choices of Sausage, Hamburger or Pulled Pork and a salad were available followed by apple crisp and ice cream.
Golf will continue while weather permits through October.
Would you like to be part of this group next season.  You can let me know now and I will add you to the list, or you can wait until mid-February when plans are being formulated.

Golf at Lakeview June 20, 2023

The 2023 season is well underway.  We currently golf at Mount Nemo and Lakeview golf courses on alternate weeks.
You do not need to be a great golfer (unlike many of us), just want to come out, hit a few balls (or in some cases many balls), and have fun with everyone else.  After the game stay for some refreshments and share your exploits with a pint or two.
If you are interested in golfing this season, it is not too late.  Contact the golf convenor, Garry Jenkins, through the Applewood Probus website.
Hope to see you on the course shortly.
