The Annual RTOERO District 28 Golf Tournament, was a great success. A total of 55 golfers, Our numbers were up from last year, at a total of 55 players, 17 of whom were invited guests of our members enjoyed a beautiful, sunny day at Sunnybrae Golf Club in Port Perry.  We sincerely appreciated the Sunnybrae staff who friendly, helpful and very accommodating!  33 members stayed to enjoy a delicious barbecue luncheon served on the patio.  Each golfer was given a swag bag at the start of the tournament, and everyone went home with a prize at the end!

The Co-chairs of the D28 Social Committee, Charmaine Huculak and Penny Kutlik would like to thank our incredible team of volunteers: Robin Helgeson, Edith Hoekstra, Dave Huculak, Sharon Lochan, Sue Nieuwenburg, and Maureen O’Reilly, for all their help.  We make a great team!


This year we were a little less competitive using a team SCRAMBLE format, so we had no individual scores, but EVERYBODY WAS STILL A WINNER!  In particular, we presented the following qualified prizes:

  • LOWEST TEAM SCORE was awarded to Bradley Brouse, Jim Olson, Steve Hess, and Rick Kolumbus
  • CLOSEST TO THE PIN was Mark Magee
  • LONGEST DRIVE by a lady was recorded by Candice Higgs
  • LONGEST DRIVE by a gentleman was recorded by Steve Hajdy
  • MOST OUTSTANDINGLY HIGH TEAM SCORE was cheerfully reported by Karen Shepherd, Patty Sayer, Margaret Ann Hawkins, and Sue White. There was a lot of hilarity as it was suggested that these last winners didn’t need to be reminded not to drink and drive, but it was suggested that perhaps they shouldn’t drink and putt, either. They loved their special gifts of practice balls and putting cups, but wouldn’t promise not to win again next year.

A huge thank you goes out to these wonderful local businesses who donated giftcards and products to our District 28 Golf Tournament at the end of May. Their generous contributions helped to make it a great day for all!
