|While the trees, fairways and greens may be covered in snow, organizers of the 18th Annual Cranberry Golf Resort/Collingwood Public Library Golf Challenge are busy at work. Taking place on Tuesday, June 7, 2011 at Cranberry Golf Course, this year’s tournament guarantees an enjoyable day of camaraderie amongst great golf, delicious food and fantastic prizes.|
The Collingwood Public Library in partnership with Cranberry Golf Resort holds the tournament each year to raise funds for key Library projects. The Library chooses projects making a real, positive impact on Collingwood residents.
“As the Collingwood Public Library’s major fundraiser, we look forward to the community’s participation,” says Sarah May, chair of the 2011 Golf Committee. “For 2011, we’re putting a central portion of raised funds towards enhancing youth and children’s programming at the Library, in addition to the Building Fund. We know there’s a large degree of support in the community for this initiative.”
Everyone is invited to join in the tournament. The entry fee is $150.00 per golfer, who can join individually, in pairs or groups of four. Interested individual golfers will be placed in teams. The tournament begins at 12:30 p.m. with a scramble format.
For $700.00, local businesses are encouraged to take advantage of the tournament’s corporate deal. The deal includes green fees for four people, a sponsorship sign at the tournament, and a corporate logo displayed on all promotional material.
Participants receive a boxed lunch, the opportunity to win door prizes and partake in a silent auction. Passed auctions featured many spectacular prizes including vacations, scenic airplane rides and golf passes, all donated by local businesses, organizations and residents. The tournament wraps up with an appetizing buffet dinner at Bear Estate.
