Once again the tournament season is upon us and we are planning another great selection in your area.

Landscape Ontario chapters raised thousands of dollars for some great charities last year, and we are hoping with everyone’s support this year we can do it again. It’s a great way to have fun, network and give to a great cause.

We will kick off the season with the Golden Horseshoe golf tournament on June 24, at the Willow Valley Golf Course. Lunch and dinner are included and there is a shotgun start at 1 p.m. Last year, we sold out, so book early to avoid disappointment!

Our next tournament will be July 17 in the Upper Canada chapter. The course is Briar Fox and tee off is at 10 a.m. Dinner is included in this tournament.  

The Toronto chapter tournament is on July 23, at a new venue this year, Glen Eagle Golf Course. Tee time is set for 8:30 a.m., followed by steak lunch. Last year we sold out, so this year we are offering a bigger course to accommodate more golfers! If you missed out last year, get your registration in now.

New this year is a poker tournament for golfers and non-golfers, in conjunction with the Toronto tournament. The Big Boys Toys Garage will hold its first poker tournament and everyone is welcome. So if golf is not your thing, come and try your luck at poker. The fee to enter is $25 and all of the proceeds will go to Sick Kids. The poker tournament will start at 4:30 p.m. and tickets for poker only are available at locc.ca.

Georgian Lakelands chapter will host its golf tournament on Aug. 20 at Innisbrook Golf Club in Barrie. There will be a 12:20 p.m. shotgun start. Last year this tournament also sold out, so again book early to avoid disappointment.

Waterloo chapter will host its tournament on Aug. 26th at Grand Valley Golf Course in Cambridge, with shotgun start at 1 p.m.

This tournament is always a sell out, so to avoid disappointment get your registration booked early.

Ottawa chapter will host a golf tournament on Aug. 27 at a new course this year. It will take place at Loch March with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. Both lunch and dinner are included.

London chapter’s fourth annual tournament will take place on Sept. 11 at the Pine Knot Golf Course. For more information, contact Wendy Harry at 519-488-0818, or wharry@landscapeontario.com.

The Windsor chapter will host its tournament on Sept. 12 at Fox Glen Golf Club. For more information, contact Wendy Harry as noted above.

There is one more tournament that sells out every year, and that is the Toronto Chapter Baseball Tournament, held on Aug. 16, at Richmond Green Ball Diamond. Enter your team now to avoid disappointment.
To register for any of these coming events, please contact Stephanie Smith at 1-800-265-5656, ext. 354 or e-mail ssmith@landscapeontario.com. We look forward to seeing you this year!
