Golfers from across the region will tee it up for the Team Cornwall, Mayor and Council Golf Tournament on Wednesday, September 9, 2015.

The tournament attracts over 150 golfers each year to a day filled with sport, fun and networking, and offers an excellent opportunity for local business people to showcase Cornwall. The tournament will be held at Summerheights Golf Links.

“We like to keep things fun and focused on what makes Cornwall such as great place to live – and play,” said Peter Gault, Chair of Team Cornwall. “It is a great opportunity to for our members to do a little networking and show their out of town guests why we are excited about our community.”

The tournament will feature a continental breakfast at 9 a.m., followed by a Shotgun Start at 10:00 a.m. Lunch will be included, as well as a buffet supper around 4:00 p.m.

“We are fortunate to have such a wonderful facility such as Summerheights Golf Links in Cornwall,” said Mayor Leslie O’Shaughnessy. “The tournament is excellent example of what can happen when local organizations get together for the common good of the community.”

Registration fees are $125 per golfer, which includes breakfast, 18 holes, cart, lunch and a buffet meal. Registration is available online on our website.

“Each year we always host several people from out of town, and in the past that has included media and business investors from Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec,” says Mr. Gault. “These visitors return back to their home communities with a positive experience about what Cornwall has to offer.”

Team Cornwall is a unique organization that exists to spread the word about Cornwall’s positive attributes as a city in which to live and do business. Team Members use their own networks to deliver timely information about the community and its growing development opportunities, and in doing so, act as ambassadors for the City’s economic development effort.

The proceeds of the tournament will go towards offsetting the costs of Team Cornwall’s ambassadorial efforts. The not-for-profit organization hosts a number of events throughout the year and maintains a popular website. In addition, Team Members travel the world to promote Cornwall, at their own cost.
