Ladies' Day and Ladies League
We are excited about our ladies programs. Lingan will continue its Thursday Morning Ladies Day which is open to members and non-members. This event received some much needed life interjected this year with the change to a non-competitive format and the addition of some after golf social gatherings. To date the ladies have hosted line dancing, Zumba classes, bridge games and a fashion show. Plans to host other events along with the golf are in the works.
The new Ladies Golf League will continue to run on Monday evenings throughout the season. The league is open to members and non-members and runs for 16 weeks. Play begins with a 5:30pm shotgun start for 9 holes of golf with a shared power cart. The formats change each week with prizes for score and by draw. The league conculdes with a closing banquet in September. Anyone who might be interested in playing in the Ladies League can contact the Lingan Golf Pro Shop at 902-562-1112 for more information.

Charity Events and Community Fundraisers
For many years Lingan has been the home for many groups who have used our facilities to hold charity golf tournaments and the tradition will continue this year. A Par Three Charity Challenge was initiated in 2010 by the board of directors and the annual challenge was presented in support of Loaves and Fishes. This years event is in the planning stages with the event scheduled to take place in late August or early September in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters.
2011 saw the start of a new tradition when the Lingan Scholarship Program is launched. This program will provide scholarships to our local high schools. Glace Bay High School, Sydney Academy, and Breton Education Center all hosted events. Over $25,000 in scholarships in the name of Lingan Golf Club were presented to deserving high school seniors in the Cape Breton area. Planning is already underway for the ninth year of this worthy event.
