First Annual Golf for Kids

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Owen Sound hosted their first annual Golf for Kids on Saturday, July 15, 2017 at Scenic City Golf Course. Mother Nature shared a day of sunshine with us and everyone was able to enjoy their day on the golf course. There was a silent auction, a loaded prize table, a putting contest, a celebrity driver, a hole in one contest, and closest to the pin.After a successful 18 holes…everyone enjoyed some laughs, some beverages, and a delicious steak dinner! 

The winning team was made up of Chris Frook, Tim McKay, Rob Dors, and Brian Reid with a score of 14 under par!

Our final total for the day was $6355; what a wonderful help that will be in offering mentoring to the youth in our community! THANK YOU!!!
