Dormie Workshop, a local golf accessories business, is hosting the first Play Yellow golf fundraiser in Canada to support the IWK Health Centre. The two-day charity tournament will take place at the world- famous Cabot Cape Breton on September 25 – 26. The event will be open to members of Golf Canada and has a fundraising goal of $35,000.
The Play Yellow initiative was founded by Jack and Barbara Nicklaus in 2019 as a way to support Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and works in partnership with the PGA Tour. Their goal is to raise $100 million for children’s hospitals across the United States and Canada through fundraising and sponsorship opportunities.
“We believe it is our responsibility to support those in our community and what better way than to look out for future generations. That’s why we have partnered with Play Yellow in support of the IWK Health Centre,” said Jeff Bishop, a PGA Canada professional and co-founder of Dormie Workshop.
The inaugural tournament will be facilitated by the Nova Scotia Golf Association and will be played by golfers residing within the Atlantic bubble. The event is a two-man best ball format with a maximum of 24 teams.
The entry fee for this event is $750 per player and a minimum of $750 per player in additional fundraising that will directly support the Play Yellow initiative & the IWK Health Center. These fees will include two rounds of golf on Cabot Links & Cabot Cliffs, accommodations, player meals, and a gift bag upon check in.
Over the weekend, participants are encouraged to wear yellow, and will compete for several prizes; highlighted by a Land Rover to the first player to make a hole- in-one provided by Jaguar Land Rover Halifax. Prizes will also be available for individual fundraising performances as this is the cornerstone of this event.
The NSGA and Cabot Links will be taking COVID-19 safety precautions to ensure guests and members are following Nova Scotia Health Authority guidelines while at the tournament.
