Golf tournament offering free spots to UWindsor employees

The Lancer women’s basketball team is offering a chance for some of the University’s employees to play for free in its Oct. 2 golf tournament.

It’s a networking opportunity as well as a chance to play — or learn to play — golf, says head coach Chantal Vallée.

“Community is one of our deeply held team values. We have been away from each other for so long and the players cannot wait to be back connecting with University faculty and staff. Our players chose to come to Windsor in great part because of this special support we have from our University towards athletics,” she says.

“This is going to be a great way to reconnect with UW faculty and staff and we hope to see you out there.”

The Women’s Basketball Alumni & Friends Golf Tournament is aimed at raising funds for scholarship and mentorship programs for members of the varsity squad. It begins with a shotgun start at 9 a.m. Saturday at Ambassador Golf Club and includes breakfast and lunch.

“We’re playing best ball, so there’s no pressure to be a skilled golfer,” Vallée notes.

Organizers are opening up to 12 free spaces — three foursomes — to administrators, faculty, or staff. First come, first served. Individuals who wish to play do not need to find a foursome; they will be matched with other singles.
