Camrose County is Teeing Off For a Cure!

The Camrose Chapter’s 10th Annual Huntington Society Golf Tournament is not your average golf tournament. This event provides such a fun and relaxing environment that it attracts everyone – not just serious golfers. People of all ages come out year after year because it’s such a fun day!

What makes it so fun? The focus is not on competing, but on having a good time – there is a hot dog lunch and a steak dinner, prizes, as well as a live auction and a silent auction that take place after the tournament, making it a fun-filled day for everyone who attends. There is also a special prize for “best dressed team” this year, since this will be the tenth year of the event.

“Filling the registration for 150-160 golfers is the easiest part for us,” says HD Society Camrose Chapter president, Rob Campbell, “We sell out and have a waiting list every year.”

Last year, the tournament raised $60,000 for HSC and the Camrose Chapter has raised $380,000 in the last nine years through this event, making it incredibly successful. This also makes it a great event idea for other chapters to think about – especially those chapters who have a lot of support from their communities through volunteers and sponsors.

“It is the support that we receive from the community that allows our event to succeed. We are thankful for every person who has helped our golf tournament become a success over the years,” says Campbell.

This year’s tournament takes place on June 17th, 2017 at Silver Creek Golf Course in New Norway, AB. The entry fee is $100/person and includes 18 holes of golf, a golf cart, hot dog lunch, steak supper and prizes. Registration takes place at 8:00am with a shotgun start at 9:00am.
