We are privileged to have Markland Wood Golf Club host our main fundraiser for the year. Here is an excerpt from their website. “Visitors are pleasantly surprised to discover the quality, beauty and tranquility found hiding in the valleys bordering the Etobicoke Creek, a short drive from downtown Toronto. The course is a joy to walk as, similar to most traditional courses, each green leads to the next tee on almost every hole.Running north and south of Bloor Street, the layout features greens that are slightly elevated and fast, well guarded and moderately sloped. Generous landing areas are balanced with holes that place a premium on accuracy.”
A big shout out to Board member Kevin Connolly (Comtech Fire) who was instrumental in arranging this opportunity. Markland Wood is a unique, private facility which is very accessible from anywhere in the GTHA. Board Chair Dan Coldwell (PACE) commented, “This is a fabulous opportunity for us to host our event closer to Toronto. Our guests will marvel at this hidden gem of a course.”
The Golf Classic is our annual fundraiser the proceeds from which support the CU Succeed Youth Bursary. With the tremendous support of sponsors and guests over the past two years, $111,000 has been awarded to post-secondary students. We look forward to seeing you in 2018!
