Aca­dian tour­ney set for Sept. 10

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - SPORTS -

The 12th edi­tion of the P.E.I. Aca­dian Golf Tour­na­ment re­turns to the Glas­gow Hills Re­sort & Golf Club in New Glas­gow on Sun­day, Sept. 10.

The event raises funds to en­sure more than 100 young Fran­co­phones from P.E.I. can par­tic­i­pate in the 2018 Fi­nals of the Aca­dian Games.

“Last year, our pop­u­lar tour­na­ment raised a record of nearly $7,000. This year, we would like to sur­pass that amount since our ex­penses keep (ris­ing) and our rev­enues keep drop­ping,” says Alexan­dre Bodet, pres­i­dent of the P.E.I. Re­gional Com­mit­tee of the Jeux de l’Acadie.

The Re­gional Com­mit­tee, along with its or­ga­niz­ing part­ner, the Aca­dian and Fran­co­phone Cham­ber of Com­merce of P.E.I., are hop­ing spon­sors and par­tic­i­pants in this year’s tour­na­ment will be ex­tra gen­er­ous this year.

The tour­na­ment uses a best­ball Mul­li­gan for­mat and play will be­gin at 1 p.m. with a shot­gun start.

The reg­is­tra­tion fee is $90 per per­son or $360 per four­some.

To reg­is­ter, con­tact Jean­nette Gal­lant at 902-854-7435 or at jean­net­te­gal­lant@gov.pe.ca.

Reg­is­tra­tion is open un­til Sept. 4.
