11th Annual William G. Rose Memorial Golf Tournament

Aug 2, 2017 @ 08:16

On Friday 21 July, 2017 one hundred and twenty-six golfers spent the day on the links in support of the 11th Annual William G. Rose Memorial Golf Tournament. Teams were comprised of Men, Ladies, or Mixed with some participants travelling from Ottawa, Sudbury, Espanola, Sault Ste. Marie, and even North Carolina!

With our host Wawa Area Victim Services the sunny skies greeted the golfers supporting local High School bursaries geared toward Law Enforcement. Any additional funds assist future tournaments as well as Victim Services with local client programs.

A 2017 Chevrolet Cruze displayed on the course was provided by Mission Motors to a participant shooting a hole in one on #7. Mission Motors has supported the tournament tremendously for 11 years, and we are thankful for the opportunity afforded to the event.

In addition, each registrant had a chance to win one of 4 Golf and Gaming Packages provided by our friends at Bay Mills Resort & Casino. This trip included a one night stay for 2 at the Resort and 18 holes of golf on their Wild Bluff Championship Golf Course.

The staff at the Michipicoten Golf Club provided us with fantastic food and exceptional service throughout the day. Michelle, Gail, Maria, Clarissa, Jana, and Jarrett from the clubhouse and Roly Lachapelle and his greens and grounds crew continue to do a fantastic job on Wawa’s little gem of a course in the North. Thank you to all!

No participant leaves the tournament without a prize but prior to that the presentations began.
