Canadian golf hero to visit Toronto club

Marlene Stewart Streit (Canadian Golf Hall of Fame)

TORONTO, ON – The Markland Wood Golf club is very excited to be the chosen host for the 2014 Toronto Star Ladies Amateur.  Perhaps even more exciting is the planned visit of one of Canadian golf’s greatest stars – Marlene Stewart Streit.

Marlene is the most successful amateur golfer in Canadian history and was inducted in to the World Golf Hall of Fame in 2004 – the first Canadian to gain that honour.  Her list of wins on home soil is incredibly impressive, but it is her quality of play away from Canada that helped her receive her most distinguished award.

Marlene is the only woman ever to win the Canadian, British, American and Australian amateur titles.  The most recent of those victories was the 2003 USGA Senior Women’s Amateur which she won at age 69, becoming the oldest champion in USGA history.

On Monday June 23rd, Marlene will be arriving at the course at 10am and will be on-site until the early afternoon.


More information on her incredible accomplishments has been shared by The World Golf Hall of Fame and  the USGA.
