Dust off your clubs – it’s time for golf!

Mark your calendar and reserve Monday, May 30 for the York University Faculty and Staff Golf Tournament. This year’s event will take place at Hunters’ Glen in Kleinburg, Ont. The tournament is open to serious and novice golfers, with an emphasis on team play and having fun. It will be played in the scramble format.

There will be a barbecue lunch at 12pm and the shotgun start at 1pm will kick off 18 holes of golf. All players will start and finish together, no waiting. Prizes are up for grabs for the longest drive, closest to the pin, closest to the rope and lowest team scores. All other prizes will be awarded by random draw so you don’t need to be Tiger Woods to win!

Why not make up a group from your Faculty or department? There will be free treats for all who participate. York’s retirees are challenged to come out and show the players how much better their game has become during retirement. There is space for a limited number of guests.

This is not a fundraising event. The fee is $95 and covers the actual cost of the 18 holes of golf, the cart, the BBQ lunch, a steak dinner at 6pm and a portion of the prizes. If you are not part of a foursome, the organizers can arrange one for you.

Organizers need at least 124 participants and can accommodate up to 144, so start making your plans now! The early bird deadline is May 1, registrations close May 18 or when 144 registrations have been received, whichever is first.
