On June 11th, 2016, 46 golfers gathered at The Quarry Golf Club in Ennismore, ON to participate in the 7th Annual Street Hope Golf Day. Although the weather was threatening rain from early morning, and the wind gave our golfers a great challenge, God kept the rain off of all of our golfers and by the time we went indoors to enjoy our barbecue lunch and to award our prizes, the sun was shining brilliantly!

Right from the beginning of the event, the air was filled with the sound of laughter and cheery voices as our golfers prepared their carts for our day out on the beautifully landscaped Quarry course! Throughout the day of golf, it was great to see everyone having a joyful time as each team worked their way to the end of their game.
This year we were once again blessed with the corporate sponsorships of Peterborough Kia and The Investors Group. There was a lovely, brand new, green Kia Soul parked on the 12th hole for people to see as they took their swing to accomplish a hole-in-one to win the car. On the 8th hole, the Investors Group had a tent set up with an opportunity to win a $5,000.00 hole-in-one prize along with their marshmallow drive competition as a 50/50 prize. All of our golfers also entered a ballot to win a trip to The Masters Championship in Augusto, Georgia in 2017.
At the end of our time on the golf course, we all gathered in the clubhouse to enjoy a delicious lunch followed by an award ceremony and prize distribution. Again, this year, we offered our top foursome a beautiful, embroidered hat that will no doubt be worn with pride by our golf champions! We had 9 businesses and individuals who sponsored holes this year, and their generosity is such a tremendous blessing to our ministry! Street Hope was also blessed with businesses who offered a combined total of $1,800.00 in golf prizes this year! Each golfer received a prize they chose as part of our appreciation for their commitment to attending our golf day.
The day was a great success and we deeply appreciated the kind hospitality and generosity of Darren and his staff at The Quarry Golf Club, who worked very hard to help us have an enjoyable day out on the course. Even more important than the funds that were raised to support the ministry of Street Hope Peterborough, were the friendships that were formed with one another as we had an enjoyable day of golf together!

The date of next year’s 8th Annual Street Hope Golf Day is Saturday June 10th, 2017. We will gather once again to raise funds to enable the ministry of Street Hope to continue and to build new relationships for God’s Kingdom!
