The Cutten Club in Guelph, Ont., is changing its name and logo for its 80th anniversary in 2011.
Founded by Guelph native Arthur Cutten, the 18-hole pay-as-you-play golf course opened in the summer of 1931 and became known as Cutten Fields.
“Today represents an important milestone in the history of our club,” said chief operating officer Craig Moore. “We’re restoring the club’s name an identity to its original name, Cutten Fields, so we can honour the traditions and heritage of our past as we evolve for the future.”
As part of the Club’s 80th anniversary festivities, Cutten Fields will host the 2011 Investor’s Group Ontario Women’s Amateur Championship from July 5-7. The club also hosted the CN Canadian Women’s Tour in 2009.
“It is an honour for Cutten Fields to be hosting such a prestigious event for our first time,” said club president Grant Robinson.
“With the numerous upgrades and improvements that we have made, the players will find it both challenging and rewarding at times,” he added.
