CANAL SHORES IN 2017: GOLF • ECOLOGY • COMMUNITY
The annual report CANAL SHORES in 2017: GOLF • ECOLOGY • COMMUNITY highlights recent developments and achievements since the Evanston Wilmette Golf Course Association, which operates Canal Shores, was reconstituted in 2013. Much progress has been made yet significant challenges remain. The Board of Directors is committed to ensuring the viability of this precious community asset and invites you to join the effort in whatever ways you can. Canal Shores offers more than golf, as you will see.
