Canadian golf associations agree merger

The membership of the Royal Canadian Golf Association voted on the weekend to approve a merger with the Canadian Ladies Golf Association at its annual general meeting in Victoria.

Last spring, the CLGA and RCGA board of directors accepted the merger agreement, pending approval of members at their respective annual general meetings. The CLGA voted unanimously to merge with the RCGA at its AGM in November 2004.

''Both associations have worked hard to get to this point and we are looking forward to the future as a unified organization governing golf in Canada,'' RCGA president David Shaw said in a statement Monday. ''By sharing our resources and expertise, we will be able to better serve our members and further our mutual goal of protecting and growing the game of golf in Canada.''

Added CLGA president Carole Mix: ''This is a historic moment for women's golf in Canada.''

In addition to the merger, a women's division has been created with the RCGA to maintain and expand existing services for women's golf in Canada.
