The Boli returns August 1st to MGC

MORRISBURG – A golfing tradition at the Morrisburg Golf Club is returning for another year. The Boli Open will take place August 1st during Men’s Night at the golf club.

This year, the Boli will donate all proceeds from the tournament to the family of Bruce Lewis who has been affected by cancer. Lewis, a member of the South Dundas community, has been unable to work during his cancer battle.

“It’s a good way to give back,” said tournament organizer Derrick Casselman. “We can afford to play golf, so we can give this to do some good.”

This is the third year that Casselman has been involved with the tournament. Two years ago, the tournament raised money for South Dundas Minor Hockey, last year was for the Elliott family, and the South Dundas Soccer Association.

“The nice thing about a tournament like this is everyone comes together to help out,” Casselman said.

The tournament, a four-man scramble, will have a shotgun start at 3:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. At many of the holes there will be prizes and other competitions to play in the tournament.

This year, each hole-in-one on the second hole will net a golfer $5,000. That prize is sponsored by McDougall Insurance and Financial.

Casselman noted that several community businesses have stepped forward to sponsor this tournament. As in past years, there will be door prizes that golfers can buy tickets on to draw.

Contact the Morrisburg Golf Club at 613-543-3282 to register. Fees are the regular Men’s Night fees.
