Welcome OPPA Credit Union

A warm welcome to the OPPA Credit Union who has decided to become a member of OCUF. We are delighted to have you.

OPPA Credit Union was started by Ontario Provincial Police officers in 1971. They focus solely on helping OPP officers, staff and their families achieve financial security. They serve over 8,000 members with over $225 million in assets. The credit union is in Barrie and offers products, services and financial planning/investment advice second to none.

For those not familiar with OPPA Credit Union, this extract from their website may be of interest:

We understand and respect our members and the challenges they face in making their dreams come true. The life of a police officer is unique. Personal stress is great. We focus our business on helping our members and their families achieve their financial goals. And we’ve been doing it since 1971. In other words, we exist to improve your life. And, we’re better qualified than most other financial institutions to do so. Because we know what makes you special.

Over the past few years, in order to achieve our growth goals, we have organized our credit union differently from other financial institutions. We have not embarked on large-scale advertising. Rather, we have focused on building our business one customer at a time, by providing excellent service and value-added advice. Every interaction with our members is critical. That’s why we have dedicated Financial Advisors assigned to a specific group of members. They work hard to get to know what their members want and need.

Again, our sincere welcome to our new friends at OPPA Credit Union!

Cherry Downs to host 30th Golf Classic

We are excited to announce the 30th Golf Classic will be played at Cherry Downs Golf Club on the eastern edge of Greater Toronto. Cherry Downs Golf Club is easily accessible, but delivers the atmosphere of a grand and peaceful old club.

Designed by Canadian architectural icon Howard Watson, the course opened in 1962 on rolling terrain framed by woodlands. Fifty years later, Cherry Downs is a mature course that fits the eye like a grand master’s painting, but the dense forests and roller-coaster fairways are a stern test of course management.

Designed as a homage to the greens at Augusta National, the devilish putting surfaces are our most defining feature. Slippery slopes, plateaus, run-offs and the protective surrounds will test your putting mettle. Before your round, hit the range which features six target greens.

As the first course in the ClubLink family, Cherry Downs holds a special place in the hearts of many for its adventure, challenging greens and old-time beauty.
