On September 14, 2016 we held our annual golf tournament at Bayview Golf Course with 77 golfers vying for the trophy! Sponsorship opportunities sold out and local area businesses donated prizes for golfer appreciation.

Funds raised from this tournament go towards keeping the Welcome Centre open and operational year-round. The Welcome Centre provides tourism and visitor services to what’s dubbed the Grand Bend Area – which encompasses “borderless tourism” for visitors, tourists and residents in support of local businesses in Lambton Shores, Bluewater and South Huron.
