SIGN UP FOR A SPECIAL GOLF DAY ON TUESDAY, MAY 21 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.
In 2018, ClubLink started a new tradition with the Plaid for Dad Golf Day which saw more than $25,000 donated to Plaid For Dad. Again for 2019, ClubLink is opening its doors to the public at three Member Club locations, on Tuesday, May 21 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.
Ensure you mark the calendar for Tuesday, May 21 as we introduce the Plaid For Dad Golf Day.
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!
Designed by legendary golfer Jack Nicklaus, Glen Abbey has hosted the RBC Canadian Open, a PGA Tour event and Canada's National Open Championship, 28 times. Glen Abbey Golf Club boasts a spectacular clubhouse facility including 'Eighteen', a sumptuous year-round dining experience open to the public, and a variety of beautiful banquet, meeting and seminar rooms.
One of the original four founding courses of ClubLink when the company began in 1993, 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. In 2005, acclaimed designer Thomas McBroom inlaid nine additional 'inland links' holes into the mix bringing Emerald Hills to 27 holes, providing ClubLink Members with even more flexibility and variety.
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.
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.
