Ladies dress in pink at Longlands Golf Course to support good cause

Longlands Golf Course held their fourth annual “Golf Fore The Cure” event this September.

The warm weather and great cause – the fight against breast cancer – brought out over 60 golfers ranging from ages 10 to 80 years old to the local par threecourse.

“The event was a great success, what wonderful way to end the ladies nights for the season,” said Donna Smith, the event co-ordinator.

It was an evening of some good and bad golf, a great dinner, and lots of fun prizes. Local dragon boaters shared some stories and recruited some new members.  Many others took home draw and silent auction prizes donated by local business sponsors including, Shoppers Drug Mart, Indigo Lounge, Super Kleen, Vision Works, Avenue Bistro, B&C Foods, Vancouver Island Brewery,  CVSGA ladies and many more. The putting competition was won by course regular Colleen Black.

Golf Fore The Cure is a national program to raise funds and awareness in the fight against breast cancer with events being held at golf courses across the country. The Longlands event surpassed last year’s total and raised over $1,260 for the Canadian Cancer Society.

Marty and Donna Smith, proprietors of Longlands Golf Course & Restaurant, along with their staff co-ordinated this year’s event.

 

“Co-ordinating these types of events is a team effort, it just can’t be done without the support of our sponsors, our staff, and all our regulars who showed up decked out in pink, and a few guys wearing pink ribbons,  it really was a fun night,” said Marty.
