Trail’s Royal Canadian Legion to host golf fundraiser

The Legion is calling out golfers to sign up for its third annual golf fundraiser on Sept. 10.

The Royal Canadian Legion invites area golfers to come out and support its third annual golf tournament/fundraiser at Champion Lakes Golf Course on Sept. 10.

The Legion’s Trail Branch #11 tournament organizer, Garry Clarkston, says he has received invaluable support from the business community and this year’s event boasts a long and growing list of prizes.

“The businesses have been outstanding,” said Clarkston. “You don’t realize it until you go out and canvas them like that and learn just what the people in this community are like – it’s a solid, solid community.”

The tournament also gives golfers a shot at the $10,000 hole-in-one cash prize on the second hole, long drive and long putts, most accurate drive, a 50/50 draw and much more. A variety of entertaining twists are also thrown in just to make things interesting, says Clarkston.

“There aren’t many rules, but there are some things we do out there on the course to have some fun. On number seven, I do a Tin-Cup hole, where you can only use your seven iron, on the drive, on the approach, on the chip, but we let you use your putter on the green – I’m telling you – it’s fun.”

The entry-fee is $50 per golfer which includes nine-holes, a lunch following the tournament at the Royal Canadian Legion, and the opportunity to win prizes and have a great time benefitting the Royal Canadian Legion Trail #11 Branch.

The best-ball format tees off with a shot-gun start at 11 a.m. with any skill-level of golfer welcome. Registration is at 10 a.m.

“Everybody starts at the same time, everybody finishes at the same time so we get them all back to the Legion, they have a nice lunch and we give all the prizes away.”

To sign up for the Royal Canadian Legion Golf Tournament and Fundraiser call Clarkston at 368-3410 or 364-1422.
