We are so excited to open registrations for our 6th Annual Golf Tournament, presented by Landrex Inc. It will take place on August 18th at the Cougar Creek Golf Resort! This is one of our main fundraisers each year. Last year, we raised $142,700 to provide safe places and positive relationships for nearly 5,000 children and youth.
You might be wondering what’s so great about our tournament. We’ll , we’ve got a list of 10 reasons why you or your company should join us!
1) Get Out of The Office.
You work hard all year long. It’s time to treat yourself to an easy day and get out of the office. It’s still “work”, but it’s a lot more fun when there’s a golf ball and a few drinks involved!
2) Devour Delicious Goodies.
What’s a golf tournament without food? We’ll have stations set up around the course where you can fill up and re-energize. Browns Socialhouse, Canadian Brewhouse, Molson Canadian, Steam Whistle, and Starbucks are just a few who will be onsite. Plus, we feed you a really fantastic steak and chicken dinner afterwards.
3) Play at Cougar Creek Golf Resort.
Have you ever seen this course? It’s stunning! Cougar Creek is a championship length golf course that winds through a natural setting. It was designed to make the most of the beautiful treed and rolling terrain. Each hole is unique. The first eleven holes weave through the trees, holes twelve through fifteen open up and are somewhat links style, holes sixteen and seventeen go back into the trees and hole eighteen is open but watery. Seriously, you don’t want to miss out.
4) Enjoy the Sunshine.
“What’s that”, you’re probably wondering. After the winter, we too forget what sunshine feels like. Yes, it is possible to go outside without a winter jacket, boots, mittens, etc. Wear your best golf pants or shorts or skirt, and make sure you bring some sunscreen.
5) Win Prizes.
We’re not even kidding about this one. There are silent auction items you can win, a 50/50, the poker hand, and a hole-in-one vehicle from St. Albert Honda. Last year Deanne Bolton got a hole in one and she drove home a brand new car. This year, it could be you!
6) Network with some of the best people in Edmonton.
With over 150 golf spots, there will be tonnes of folks for you to network with. Need a new windshield? Talk to Ken from Crystal Glass. Want advice from an accounting professional? Elyse from BDO Canada can hook you up. (Or don’t network, and just enjoy the day with your teammates. Whatever works!)
7) Get Silly.
One of our favourite parts of this tournament are the activities we’ve got on the holes to keep you on your toes. Last year, everyone nearly died laughing as they watched team after team compete in Minute-To-Win-It themed games. For example, who could get the most steps by just shaking their heads? Who could maneuver an Oreo from their forehead to their mouth without using their hands? It was gold! There’s also a photo booth complete with ridiculous props and we’ll send out your photos after the tournament as a souvenir.
8) Treat Your Clients or Employees.
Golf Tournaments make really great opportunities to show your appreciation. You can treat your loyal clients or top performing employees to a round of golf. They’ll appreciate a unique experience, feel valued, and notice your commitment to our community.
9) Meet our Kids.
A handful of kiddos will be joining us to help you out on the putting green. Chat with them about their young lives, learn about our programs, and just enjoy spending time with some awesome young people. After all, they’re the reason we do what we do.
10) Make A Difference.
By coming to our Golf Tournament, you’re helping us raise money to provide the kids and families of our community with the supports and services they need. This event is one of our largest and most important fundraisers and truly enables us to continue our important work of providing safe places and positive relationships for nearly 5,000 kids.
***Note that a very limited number of sponsorship and individual registrations are available.
