“TEE OFF TO WINTER” On October 3rd

August 15th, 2019 (Collingwood, ON) –   The 2nd annual AOA Golf Tournament, co-hosted by the National Ski Academy and the Nik Zoricic Foundation (NZF), have set a date for Wednesday, October 3rd. The tournament will take place at the beautiful Lora Bay Golf Club in Thornbury, ON just west of Collingwood and steps from the Niagara Escarpment and The Georgian Peaks Clubs. The tournament was originally slated for June 14th but due to the areas unusually wet spring course conditions pushed the date back.

Taking place on a Thursday, AOA is hoping several hundred members and supporters can fit in an afternoon of golf with a 1:30 pm tee-off time followed by a gourmet BBQ dinner. Proceeds raised on October 3rd will be jointly split between the three host organizations to support Ontario alpine ski racing and NZ safety programs.  The 2019 tournament represents the first time the three organizations have worked together.

Bill Reeves, AOA Executive Director comments. “Let’s be honest in saying October is a way better time for a golf tournament! Not only have we dusted off our golf clubs and perfected our swings, but the weather is also typically better. We are thrilled to work alongside partners such as the Nik Zoricic Foundation and the National Ski Academy and really hope our members can start to get excited about the coming ski season by supporting AOA athletics on October 3rd.”
