for Cancer Care at St. Mary’s Hospital Center!
Not a cloud in the sky on Monday June 11, 2018 as more than 200 golfers came out to play in picture-perfect weather in the 26th edition of the coveted St. Mary’s Masters at The Royal Montreal Golf Club. Under the skilled leadership of Chairman Curtis Millen and Honorary Chairman Murray Steinberg, our dedicated committee worked diligently to ensure an exceptional, fun-filled day for all participants and raised an impressive $300,820 NET.
Our guests were delightfully surprised when they were greeted by Montreal Canadiens young guns Charles Hudon #54 and Nikita Scherbak #38 who graciously posed for photos and signed autographs. Legendary old-timer and Habs Ambassador Guy Lafleur joined us for cocktails and regaled guests with superb stories of his time as the incomparable #10. The golfers were welcomed by our fabulous volunteers, organized by Volunteer Chairperson Muriel Longlade, and treated to a superb brunch in the dining room which offered a sprawling abundance of fresh fruit, salads, eggs of every style, sausages, home fries and more!
Bagpiper Greg Jarry dressed in full McGill University tartan, piped the golfers as they headed out in their carts to await the boom of the opening shot gun. Activities on the course included a straightest drive competition, closest to the pin and a revamped putting contest crafted by the Club’s head pro, along with TWO hole-in-one opportunities to win a new Mini Cooper Countryman from Groupe Park Avenue. There was a steady flow of traffic throughout the day lining up for delicious smoked meat sandwiches and not-to-be-missed tomato pizza and meatball sandwiches from Del Monaco – with snack stations in between keeping everyone happy!
