Lads and Dads #8, Saturday, June 27th, Duntroon Highlands

by ladadmin on June 8, 2015

unnamedDear Lads & Dads,

In less than 4 weeks there will be a splash of colour fall over the greens and fairways of Duntroon Highlands for the 8th Annual Lads & Dads Charity Golf event in aid of Prostate Cancer Canada.

I have listed all those golfers confirmed below and Dads, can I ask that you share this note with your Lad in case I have missed an e-mail. Our goal is to hit 50 golfers and we are almost there.

Now to the details for 2015…….. (do have a look at the website and our thanks to Ron Foreman):

We will again have a shotgun start at 1pm Saturday June 27th. The registration desk will be open at noon and we will have the back deck to meet/greet and hear the rules. The Owners, Debbie and Norm Sampson are pleased to welcome us back for our 4th year in a row at Duntroon and Chef Tim Knorr will be operating the “Highland Grill”!!

The 18 holes of golf, carts, swag, prizes, taxes, gourmet dinner and gratuities plus a donation to Prostate Cancer Canada will be $125 per golfer (last year $120) and please bring cheque or cash for registration. Directions

The format (that resulted in the Dads winning!) will of course be the same as last year! Dads and Lads will play in the same foursome to allow for spirited conversation, but the scoring will be skins….. Lads vs Dads. More details before we tee off.

YES, at the end there will again be a competition for the best dressed Lad & Dad. We will again have an impartial TEAM of judges (a la The Voice) comprised of the Duntroon Staff. Just to confirm, no Super Hero costumes and you must wear the attire for the entire golf round.

We need everyone to consider and bring prizes/swag that you might have for the awards table. Tom Rayner has again found a very valuable piece of sports memorabilia and more on that in the next and final e-mail!

Finally, I was asked how we seem to usually have such great weather? To ensure that this continues, Mark Wicken has invited Dave Devall (the very well-known and respected CTV weather man, now retired) to ensure that we have a fine day! Thanks in advance to Dave and his lucky kilt!!!

Here is the list of confirmed attendees and they have been shared with Duntroon Highlands. Special recognition to Gary Wilson who has brought us 10 golfers this year!! We do have a few more who will confirm shortly, but this should be the largest Lads & Dads event yet! We welcome the Carota Family and know that Steve Carota has flown in from Melbourne Australia the day before to assist the Lads this year (Jason Day and Adam Scott had previous commitments)!
