Ontario Long Term Care Association's Annual Golf Tournament

The Ontario Long Term Care Association Annual Golf Tournament is an excellent opportunity to mix and mingle with the membership in a relaxed atmosphere. This year's tournament will feature an 18-hole shotgun start at noon, followed by dinner and an awards ceremony. New this year, we’re also offering 9-hole golfing, to start in the early afternoon, as well as a paint event for those who prefer not to golf but still want to network and support the Association. Our golf tournament is a great day of fun and networking, with all proceeds benefiting the Ontario Long Term Care Association's Education Fund, which provides financial assistance to staff in member homes pursuing continuing education initiatives to enhance their knowledge and skills in long-term care. Thanks to overwhelming interest in this event, in the past 15 years more than $250,000 has been awarded to more than 300 staff members our member homes.
