Golf tournament to help kids running on May 15

Golfers can now register for the 15th annual Fore Our Kids golf tournament that will take place at the Victoria East Golf Club on  May 18. 

Fore Our Kids is a tour­nament hosted by the Child­ren’s Foundation of Guelph and Wellington, which raises funds for local children in need.

Many children in the com­munity do not have the oppor­tunity to "be a kid" and meet new friends at summer camp or through Sports or music less­ons. The program is aimed at subsidizing or paying in full regis­tration fees for those kids so they can experience a part of childhood that many take for granted. The goal is to provide all children in need with access to programs and experiences for their well being.

“The best part of the trip was going to the Hard Rock Café. I would totally do it again as it was a trip of a lifetime. Thank you for your support on making it possible for me to go,” said a student who was able to attend his grade 8 trip to Ottawa.

Participants in the Fore Our Kids golf tournament will have 18 holes of golf with a cart, a lunch and dinner, registration gifts, and the chance to win prizes. The tournament begins with registration at 11am on May 18. If a team signs up and pays to participate before April 15, it will save 10% on the tournament fees – a foursome will golf for $540 or an indi­vidual for $135.

Registration for the tourna­ment is available online at or by calling 519-826-9551. Individuals who want to attend just the dinner pay $45, but they are also able to make a donation to the Children’s Foundation of Guelph and Wellington online or by phone.

The Fore Our Kids Golf Tournament has raised over $120,000 for the camp program since it began in 1996. Every child helped is part of Guelph and Wellington County. Each dollar raised goes to helping a child in Guelph and Welling­ton.
