Game Warden Museum Golf Tournament
We are pleased to announce the date and location for our 2015 Annual Golf Tournament. This year’s tournament will be held at the Kingswood Golf and Country Club in LaSalle, Manitoba on August 12, 2015. Registration begins at 11 AM and Tee-off is at 12 Noon.
Last year’s tournament raised just shy of $9700 for the museum. A huge shoutout needs to go to Prairie Helicopters as our long time supporter and now new sponsor! Your dedication and generosity to Natural Resource Protection is very much appreciated.
Our tournament to date has raised $133,000 for the museum. This is our 14th annual tournament. We are challenging all of the Officer’s Associations across North American to sponsor a hole. The hole sponsorship is only $200 and the first 18 sponsorships will have a sign, with their association’s logo, placed at a tee box.
Please come and join us again this year to help make this year’s tournament an even bigger success than last year.
Entry form for the tournament can be found at the following link:
If you are interested in playing in the tournament or would like to make a donation towards the tournament, please contact Blake Patterson at 204-734-3429 or at
