Canal Shores 2016 Year End Survey

On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Evanston Wilmette Golf Course Association, I would like to ask for a few minutes of your time to complete this online survey.  We want you to tell us what is important to you.

As we work to improve our operations, implement course improvements and complete the Ecological Master Planning process, we feel we are at an important juncture.  We would like to know more about your experience at Canal Shores so that we can better manage our time, energy and resources to serve our users – golfers and community alike – into the future.

As we continue to engage our entire community, your input is important to us.  It is our responsibility to continue to make Canal Shores a better place and financially sustainable.  Click here to begin the survey.

Please complete your survey and return it to us before November 30.  In addition to responses to the survey, your personal views are always welcome.  Just email your thoughts and ideas to us at

We will be hosting a Year End gathering at the Legion Hall on Monday, December 12, 6:30pm - 8:00pm to thank you for your participation and report our findings.   Come join us for cookies, coffee and conversation about Canal Shores.

Very truly yours,

Chris Carey
Chairman of the Grounds Committee

Ecological Survey

Canal Shores has retained the services of Planning Resources Inc. to undertake a survey and inventory of the entire Canal Shores property. Donations from neighbors and supporters of the course helped us reach our first milestone for fundraising so that this effort can begin. The project is funded in part by a Coastal Management Planning Grant from IDNR/NOAA. We are accepting donations now so that we can complete the study which will include a delineation of wetlands, inventory of trees and wildlife habitats, and make recommendations for ecological restoration and enhancement.
