SIGN UP FOR A SPECIAL GOLF DAY ON TUESDAY, MAY 22 AND HELP PROTECT SOMEONE YOU LOVE FROM PROSTATE CANCER.
Plaid for Dad was launched in 2015 to help raise awareness and vital research funds for prostate cancer. One out of every seven men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer in their lifetime. Plaid for Dad has quickly become a fun and easy way for Canadians to celebrate dad (and all the men in their lives) that may be diagnosed with prostate cancer one day.
This year, ClubLink is starting a new tradition with the Plaid for Dad Golf Day. ClubLink is opening its doors to the public at four Member Club locations, in addition to two of its Daily Fee locations, on Tuesday, May 22 and donating 50% of the proceeds from the golf day to Prostate Cancer Canada. So get your friends and family together to enjoy a nice day on the golf course and donate to a great cause.
Because of your support, Prostate Cancer Canada can invest more funds in critical research and programs to help even more men and their families.
When you register to play at any participating Plaid for Dad Golf Day event you'll have a chance to win a trip for two to Eagle Trace Golf Club in Coral Springs, Florida. The prize includes flights and a two night stay at Fort Lauderdale Marriott Coral Springs Hotel, Golf Club & Convention Center!

Emeralds Hills Golf Club is leafy sanctuary of golf in one of the most revered natural areas around Greater Toronto. Originally opened in 1982, the course takes maximum advantage of the ruggedly gorgeous Oak Ridges Moraine. Talk about an architectural one-two punch: the late Rene Muylaert designed the original 18-holes which were so well respected that they played host to the Nations Cup in 1999 and 2000, in which LPGA players representing Canada and the U.S. played each other in a Ryder Cup-style team competition.
One of the most unique and popular courses of ClubLink, Wyndance Golf Club is enjoyable to play and visually stunning. The first course in Canada designed by Greg Norman, Wyndance has been meticulously shaped to take advantage of the existing terrain and sandy rock faces of the reclaimed gravel pit site upon which it was built. Large waste bunkers, loose rock outcroppings, and fairways lined with fescue convey the aura of playing golf in the American Southwest, a feeling reinforced by the architecture of the clubhouse.
In the roster of great courses designed by Canadian architect Thomas McBroom, Heron Point Golf Links, although one of his earliest, still ranks among his best. Around the rolling landscape of Lake Dunmark near Ancaster, McBroom has fused three different themes into a seamless whole that builds in momentum to one of the greatest finishing holes in Canadian golf. He delivers as taste of Carolina lowlands golf through a mix of rolling meadowlands and wetlands, Canadian parkland golf through dense stands of trees, as well as links-style golf with fescue-covered mounds and turbulent terrain.
When it opened in 1997, The Lake Joseph Club caused jaws to drop around the golfing world. Architect Thomas McBroom utilized the granite crags, towering trees and heaving topography of the incomparable Muskoka region, north of Toronto with such success that the course was named the best new course in the country by Golf Digest. A nine-hole Academy Course complements its big brother on the shore of picturesque and historic Lake Joseph.
The Club at Bond Head offers the ultimate golf experience just minutes west of Highway 400, a few kilometres north of Aurora, Ontario. Two magnificent courses, designed by the renowned firm of Hurdzan-Fry, are presided over by a palatial clubhouse. The South Course is links-style, with wide fairways, gaping bunkers and fescue roughs. The parkland-style North Course features dramatic elevation changes, spectacular vistas and small, contoured greens.
On the eastern edge of Greater Toronto, Cherry Downs Golf Club is easily accessible, but delivers the atmosphere of a grand and peaceful old club. Designed by Canadian architectural icon Howard Watson, the course opened in 1962 on rolling terrain framed by woodlands. Fifty years later, Cherry Downs is a mature course that fits the eye like a grand master’s painting, but the dense forests and roller-coaster fairways are a stern test of course management.
This year, for the fourth year in a row, we’re expecting thousands of workplaces and individuals from across Canada to Go Plaid through donations, fundraising and events. The Friday before Father’s Day is officially designated as the day to wear Plaid for Dad. Participants will share photos online using the hashtag #PlaidforDad to show their support and help spread the word.
