The Mackenzie Tour PGA (Professional Golf Association) Canada is coming to Windsor’s Ambassador Golf Club from July 2 to 8, 2018 and giving young golfers, 19 or younger, an opportunity to participate in a round of golf with a Pro during the Pro-Am tournament.

The Windsor Regional Hospital Foundation, the charitable fundraising organization supporting Windsor Regional Hospital, is partnering with the Mackenzie Tour PGA Canada to promote and select individuals to enter a competition and participate in the event simply by going online and in their own words, express why they want to participate in a round of golf with a pro.

The Mackenzie Tour PGA Canada is supporting the Hospice of Windsor Essex County. The opportunity to play, sponsored by Windsor Regional Hospital Foundation is supporting the Women and Children’s Program for the Erie St. Clair Local Health Integration Network (ESCLHIN) which includes prenatal care, labour and birthing, the regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit and Paediatric Services.

This once in a lifetime opportunity provides three individuals, 19 years of age and younger a chance to enter the competition by submitting on-line why they want to participate in the PGA Tournament. Three candidates will be selected to golf with a pro from the Mackenzie Tour PGA Canada.

All applicants meeting the criteria and not selected to golf will receive free passes to attend and watch the tour. Fifteen individuals will have the opportunity to participate in a Junior Demonstration on Saturday, July 7th and participate in the Junior Clinic on July 8th at Ambassador Golf Club with a Pro.

Applicants must meet the following criteria to be eligible to enter the contest:

  • · 19 years of age or younger by July 1, 2018
  • · Resident of Windsor or Essex County
  • · Have parental consent and have their photograph taken during the tournament
