About Our Event
Get ready for the 14th Annual “Fore Mississauga” Golf Tournament this year to be held at Glencairn, a ClubLink property! The Scottish-themed Glencairn Golf Club in Milton, has been called "the closest you'll come to Scotland without crossing the Atlantic”. Join us on June 29th for a fun golf experience including entertainment, golf with a competitive angle, bagpipes for sure, a few bites along the course, and a small reception at noon to complete the day.
The day on the greens will feel like the misty Heathlands of Scotland, as you walk beside the rock fences and play the sod wall bunkers. You'll sense the history as you cross the stone bridge over Leithfield Burn, and arrive at the magnificent clubhouse, with its authentic Scottish pub. It's the unmistakable patina of prestige, heritage and quality and you’re invited!
“Great Golf Tournament, professional and well organized. Lots of activities and the whole day felt indulgent - a real treat from a standard Tuesday”
-David Shaw, Owner Nurse Next Door Mississauga
INTERESTING GOLF FACTS
A “condor” is term given to a hole-in-one on a par 5. It is almost as rare as two hole-in-ones in a single game of golf. A score of three under par is called an “Albatross”.
The first golf balls were made of feathers wrapped in leather. They flew much further than the balls that came after and were used until the mid-1800s. After feathers, golf balls were made of wood.
To this day, golf is one of only two sports, along with the javelin throw, to have ever been played on the moon. Back on February 6, 1971, Apollo 14 member Alan Shepard hit a ball with a six-iron, swinging one-handed as a result of his pressure suit.
Northern Canadian territory Nunavut’s annual Toonik Tyme Festival includes a nine-hole golf tournament. With temperatures well below freezing, golfers play on a sheet of ice, using fluorescent balls, in fear of losing them in the snow.
