Tee It Up for Mattawa Healthcare” charity golf tournament is on 21 August 2019. It starts on Tuesday, 20 August 2019, with a practice round at Mattawa Golf & Ski Resort. I played in 2017 and missed last year because of health issues, but this is a great event and must attend on my tournament schedule each year.
My connection to this wonderful charity event stems from my darling mother-in-law, Beatrice. Bea is a fantastic person who now resides in the new Algonquin Nursing Home. Her care is first-rate and the staff exceed all expectations. A big shout out to all the healthcare providers in Mattawa, you a doing a fantastic job. Thank you.
I have played Mattawa before and it is a fun track that offers many interesting challenges. This 9-hole track puts on a great tournament with awesome food and many side attractions. I already played it once this year and it was very dry (all the courses in the area are) with elevated greens. I found the roll out on tees shots fun and the elevated greens less so (because I could not chip….haha). I always enjoy playing Mattawa and look forward to this great event.
The tournament organizers make us feel like champions before we even tee it up. The have plenty of great food, fun side events, and opportunities to win skins. After the golf, we are treated to a world-class meal and an auction which is always fun to watch. In 2017, this event raised just over 75k; that is a huge number considering the size of the town.
Additionally, I want to give big shout out to the tournament organizers because they not only organized this fantastic event, they just finished moving 72 senior residence into a new building and fought a flood for 2 months in the spring. They are a group of truly dedicated and amazing people who love their community.
