Help us replace our CDGA markers

This year we put a spotlight on providing you accurate measurements from tee to green. We're close to completing the effort but need your help.

Our CDGA medallions are in terrible shape. These are the flat, golden markers positioned in the ground near tee areas; they are the points that indicate our scorecard's yardage from the white/back tee to the center of the green. Most are cracked, worn or loose which leads to uncertain yardages and to poor aesthetics.

We rely on our golfers and community supporters to propel our continued improvement. Please consider making a donation of $40 to "buy" a marker for the course, and a donation of any amount is appreciated. With your help we'll continue to improve the Canal Shores' experience and further polish "the gem in your backyard."

Please help us complete our yardage project with a donation today!

Canal Shores is managed by a 501(c) 3 not-for-profit charitable organization of neighbors from Evanston and Wilmette. The course receives NO public funds or taxpayer monies. We depend on revenues from golfers and generous donations from our supporters – and the sweat equity of committed volunteers. Canal Shores is part of the fabric of our community.
