Stanley Thompson Symposium At Highlands Links Next Week

I’m heading to Ingonish, NS, next week to participate in a symposium on the life and work of Stanley Thompson alongside some of the game’s most distinguished Canadian commentators, including Globe columnist Lorne Rubenstein, architect Ian Andrew, pundit/designer Jeff Mingay, and historian Ken Donovan.

It should involve interesting discussion at one of my favourite golfing locations in the world — the north end of Cape Breton. Doesn’t hurt that I’ll get to hit the ball around Highlands a couple of times as well!

The program is being put on as part of the designation of Stanley Thompson as a person of historic significance — likely the first step to trying to have Highlands named as a Canadian historic site.

Anyone with any questions can send me a note or add a comment.
