    LGAA is pleased to invite members, municipal government employees, and organizations to participate in our 2024 Golf Tournament at the beautiful Silvertip Resort in the mountains of Canmore, Alberta. 

    This is a new feature that we have added on as a pre-conference activity the day before our 2024 Conference & Trade Show. 

    REGISTER now , before this event is SOLD out 

    Cost

    $160.00 + GST   Members

    $160.00 + GST   Tournament Sponsors

    $210.00 + GST   Non-Members

    Cost includes:
    • 18-hole round of golf
    • Power cart (shared)
    • Access to the driving range and putting facilities
    • Sponsored free meal on hole 10
    • Free food after the round
    • Chance to win prizes, and
    • Numerous opportunities to network with other administrators and vendors
    Format

    Shot-gun tee-off at 9:30 a.m. using a scramble format (often referred to as "best ball") where players tee off and then hit from the best shot of their team and repeat this process until each hole is complete. 

    Team Selection

    Players will have the option to request to play with a colleague they know or be matched up in teams where they can meet new people. 

    Not a regular golfer?

    That's okay! Whether you shoot 70 or 200, we invite all levels of golfers to participate. The scramble format (aka ‘best ball’) lets you hit from your teammates’ best position each time. This is great for new players as it lessens your discomfort and let’s you focus on what matters – networking with your teammates and sponsored vendors at each hole. Plus, there is no incentive for your team to shoot the lowest score because prizes will be awarded based on fun merits and random draws. 

    Timing with other LGAA pre-conference events

    LGAA is offering a number of other pre-conference activities on the same day. For planning purposes, the golf tournament will be complete by 2:00 p.m. but the post-tournament prize awards and meals may run until after 3:00 p.m. If you plan to participate in the afternoon rafting tour or mobile scavenger hunt, it is possible that you may have to leave the post-tournament ceremony early to be on time for those other afternoon events. 

    Sponsors

    If you are interested in sponsoring our 2024 Golf Tournament, you can sponsor a hole for only $500. Details are in our 2024 Sponsorship Opportunities brochure.
