WOODSTOCK – May 4, 2021 – The popular Acadian Golf Tournament, which took a break last year due to the pandemic, will return this year to celebrate its 15th edition.

The number of spots is limited so interested golfers are urged to sign up as soon as possible.
As always, the tournament will wrap up with a delicious supper as well as the presentation of various prizes, including rewards for the best scores.

And following its tradition, the Acadian and Francophone Chamber of Commerce of PEI (CCAFLIPE) will be offering a special little contest with prizes for 15 randomly selected golfers as this year marks the 15th anniversary of the tournament.
« This year, in order to respect the province’s health restrictions, we will have to divide the group into two cohorts when we are inside for supper, so we are limited in the number of golfers we can accept, » explains tournament coordinator Jeannette Gallant. « Entries will be reserved exclusively for teams of four.”
« The Chamber of Commerce, which is collaborating in the organization and promotion of the event, strongly encourages businesses and corporations to sponsor the tournament to support our young Island athletes in their participation in the upcoming Jeux de l’Acadie Finals in Quispamsis and Saint John, New Brunswick, » said Raymond J. Arsenault, CCAFLIPE event coordinator. « We are also encouraging businesses, employers, groups of friends and family groups to register teams to participate in what is always a fun day. »
