Mark Sunday, September 10, 2023 in your calendar for the 30th Annual Buddies Open. Come to enjoy a day of golf, or to enjoy the world famous sausages and BEvERages, all are welcome (families and children included!!) Our goal is to beat our last year record of $15,000 for children’s cancer related charities. To date, the Buddies have raised $110,000! If you want to play as a single or be paired in a foursome, please let us know in the Comments section.
For the September 2022 tournament, 112 donors raised a net $15,000 for Northern Ontario Families of Children With Cancer, Childhood Cancer Canada, Gilda’s Club of Toronto, Wellspring Cancer Support Foundation, NepalAbility, UforChange, Behind Greatness, and SHARE Agriculture Foundation.
HISTORY OF THE BUDDIES OPEN
In 1994, the North West Devils were awarded $500 for winning the Bill Bolton Consolation Men’s Hockey Championship. Excited and not knowing what to do with the bounty, we decided to put the funds towards a golf tournament and BBQ. The event was so successful it is a ritual.
Nearly the entire original Devils continue to take part in the tourney (though none have ever won), much has changed. Most notably, the bachelors have become fathers making their wives and children part of the Buddies. That is what makes it special.
This is a Scramble tournament. So get your foursomes ready. Please enter as either a foursome or as an individual and provide details in the Comments section below.
Over 80 participants take part in the annual event, which does not include the many friends and family members that attend afterwards just for the Pool, the BEvERages and of course, the world famous sausages. We’ve even added live music to spice up the ambiance.
Remember all are welcome regardless of handicap-any Buddy of yours is a Buddy of ours.
The challenge is on! Register Today.
