The fourth annual London Chapter Golf tournament was a sell out event!  With great weather, 144 golfers and eager spirits, the tournament was underway with a shotgun start for best ball scramble.  Each participant received a box lunch, sponsored by Triple H Landscape Supplies, a sleeve of golf balls from Stihl Products, and beverage ticket supplied by Huron Tractor. Participants each had an opportunity to win a one-year lease on a 2010 Challenger from Oxford Dodge. Unfortunately no one won the hole-in-one.

After a full afternoon of golf, participants returned to the clubhouse for a steak dinner, sponsored in part by Oak Concrete Products, Brampton Brick and Fisher Landscape and Golf Supplies, a glass of wine sponsored by Permacon and a chance to win over $4,000 in prizes. The three major prizes – a Toro lawnmower, valued at $900, and other Toro products, a power washer from Nevtro Sales, valued at $500, and a Stihl  Kombi-system, valued at $750, were left to the last before the winners were announced, keeping everyone in suspense.  

Thank you to the rest of our sponsors: Platinum –  Stratford Farm Equipment, Gold – Unilock,  Bronze – Baseline Nursery, Commander Industries, Delaware Nursery, Gro-Bark (Ontario), Hanson Hardscape Products, Horta-Craft, HortProtect/The Investment Guild, LaFarge Aggregates, United Agri-Product (Canada) and everyone who donated door prizes.

Without the continued support of our sponsors, to make this golf tournament a major fundraiser for the London Chapter, we wouldn’t be able to donate the proceeds to the completion of the Diabetes Global Garden at Banting House, and the London Chapter’s future community projects.  

Golf committee members are Jay Murray, Darcy DeCaluwe and Grant Harrison.

Mark your calendar for next year’s 5th annual tournament, Sept. 10, and buy your tickets early.
