History of the Tournament

Over the years we have shared many adventures together and every year they get better and better….

We’ve visited tropical destinations, explored the glitz and glam of Hollywood, felt the nostalgia of decades past and even taken a trip under the sea. Together we’ve travelled through time and space supporting charities in the communities that we work and live in. This page is dedicated to our favourite memories from tournaments past.

In 2018 we put on our best poker faces and, with Elvis and some showgirls by our side, we tried our luck with our very own “Vegas” themed tournament.

In 2017 we let the good times roll with our very own “Mardi Gras” inspired tournament.

In 2016 we invited you to run away with us to join the “Circus” and what a circus it was! The weather cooperated with us and all our Carnies enjoyed a beautiful day, both on the course and under the big top! Entertained by a roaming band of misfit performers, and our own bearded lady at your service, this tournament was truly one of the greatest shows on earth!

2015 marked a new era for our not so little tournament. A course change brought us new challenges and new opportunities. With our expectations set high, not even a dangerous storm could stop us as we braved the choppy waters to dive in with pirates and sea creatures to create an authentic “Under the Sea” experience. We even had a select few brave enough to jump on board for the authentic walk the plank dunk tank experience.

Our 2014 tournament was more like a Hollywood movie than we thought it would be when we first set the theme. With a little “help” from Mother Nature our 32nd Annual tournament required a second take. A wicked storm with fierce winds the night before the tournament made quite a mess of the course. While the course did everything they could to get us up and running, a downed power line meant we could not golf. With everyone there we opted to continue with the portions of the program we could and postponed the rest of the tournament until the fall.

On June 19, 2013 the worst flood in Alberta’s history devastated areas along the Bow River including the golf course our tournament was to be held at. Not many golf courses have banquet facilities large enough to host our tournament so finding an alternate course on short notice was no easy task. With some luck and a lot of help our 31st Annual tournament traveled to a Hawaiian paradise with only a slight layover delaying our tee time from morning to afternoon.

2012 was a year of anniversaries. Our not so little tournament turned 30 and Mac’s turned 50 so we celebrated.
