    The best ball format makes this a fun event for golfers of all skill levels. PROBUS members are welcome to bring guests. A good way to introduce a friend to the fellowship of PROBUS.

    The program is similar to past years: 18 holes of golf followed by a dinner and “awards” ceremony with prize exchange. However, there are some important changes:

    • post game meal will be a barbecued steak dinner
    • payment will be required in advance by July 26 to confirm your registration. This is necessary to enable planning the logistics of the event for everyone’s enjoyment.

    The price for green fees with one half cart rental and the dinner is $128.00 (including taxes and tip). Beverages are extra. For those who would like to participate in the fellowship of the dinner only, the fee will be $40.00.

    To participate in the prize table, 'bring a prize and win a prize', just bring a prize with a minimum $25 value for the prize table. Then you are eligible to choose a prize with your team.

    This year there is another special prize with winner drawn from the first 32 registered players. The prize being Golf for Four with Carts at the Galt Country Club. Generously donated by PROBUS member Wayne Taylor 

    Our group will Tee off from the 1st Tee. The first foursome at 12:00 Noon, and each foursome every 9 minutes thereafter. Your specific tee time and details of the day’s program will be advised prior to the event.
