On September 28 and 29, more than 80 athletes, coaches, and staff will come together to train, practice, and compete with hopes of winning the first national golf tournament.

The event is a build-up to the 2014 Special Olympics Canada Summer Games when golf will be contested for the first time at a national competition.

Golf was added to the Special Olympics sport roster in 2008 and the sport has only grown from there. There are now more than 1,000 registered golfers across the country.

To wrap up the weekend, there will be a dinner and awards night to recognize the winners of the weekend’s competition.

Thanks to Mark’s and Ash City for generously donating golf shirts, and also to PGA of Canada for their support in helping organize this tournament.
