The Southeast Georgian Bay Chamber of Commerce (SEGBAY), in partnership with Bell Media’s Pure Country 106 and Bounce 104.1, hosted its 8th Annual Golf Tournament on September 14, 2021. The tournament raised a total of $31,500 – with $21,000 being dedicated to the GBGH Foundation’s Kickstart Your Heart Campaign which raises funds to help purchase defibrillators and crash carts for Georgian Bay General Hospital, and $10,500 dedicated to the Wendat Lorna Tomlinson Residence for Seniors in Penetanguishene.
The 116 golfers in attendance at Oak Bay Golf Club in Port Severn were treated to the course’s beautiful views of Georgian Bay, with rain holding off until the day was done. Along with the un-FORE-gettable course, everyone got the chance to take part in a variety of contests such as Beat the Pro golfer and Hole-in-One contests. This was followed by a spectacular dinner prepared by Chef Luigi.
Fred Wareing, Chair of the Golf Tournament Committee, stated: “This was another fantastic tournament for the books. We are so pleased the weather held off so all the golfers could enjoy the challenges of this tough course – which was in great shape thanks to the hard work of the staff at Oak Bay Golf Club. Topped off by the delicious meal by Chef Luigi, it was an unforgettable day in all. We have heard nothing but positive feedback from everyone, and the golfers can’t wait to come back again next year!”
Wareing went on to say: “We sincerely thank each and every person who participated this year. In these unconventional times, we are proud you put your trust in us to keep you safe and healthy. To our many sponsors, staff at Oak Bay Golf Club, and the hardworking volunteers, we extend a humble thank you. In the 8 years of running this tournament we have raised a total of $260,000. The success of this tournament relies on your contributions and we’re so grateful for your support each year.”
