Yes in only 8 days we shall be taking on our Lads (and past champions, again!) at the 7th annual Lads & Dads golf event in support of Prostate Cancer Canada.

Just to recap last year’s tournament results: The Lads won! Scott Billing took lowest gross and the Plaid Jacket as well as the longest drive, Adam Lank took closet to the pin, Gary Wilson and Team took the fashion award, Jack Simpson took youngest golfer!! I am sure there were other winners, but it was a year ago and the Dads are stilling hurting!!

Now to the details for 2014:
This will again be a shotgun start at 1:00pm Saturday June 21st. This year we have the full Duntroon Highlands course. We will have the deck over looking the 18th fairway and dining room also as we did last year. The owners, Debbie and Norm Sampson are pleased to have us back AND we have chef Tim Knorr operating “The Highlands Grill”!!!!

The 18 holes of golf, carts, swag, prizes and gourmet chicken and ribs dinner plus a contribution to Prostate Cancer Canada will be $120 per golfer (last year $110). For directions have a look at

The format of the competition may be the same as the last two years but hopefully with a better out come…remember the playoff hole on the 18th as the sun set two years ago??? Dads and Lads will play in the same foursome to allow for spirited conversations, but the scoring will be Lads vs Dads – Our Rules Committee headed by Dave Holt will give us details on tourney day!

This year with the help of Norm & Debbie Sampson, we have a new prize….$25,000 for a hole in one on one of the back nine par 3’s!!!!! You choose the car!!

Yes, there will again be a competition for best dressed Lad & Dad. We will again have an impartial TEAM of local judges who can be influenced by drinks, cash and/or erotic dance moves!! One small change on this competition, golf attire only, two people, and it must be worn during the tourney….Mark Wicken, take the Batman and Robin “costumes” back now!!

We are often asked “can we bring swag for the Prize table” and the answer is YES please!

Finally, the event will finish about 9pm and there will be some people heading back to The Holt’s at Caesar’s Palace. If anyone needs overnight accommodations, let Dave or I know and we’ll see what we can do.
