The Food Pantry Golf Outing started in 2006 by a group of local residents who wanted to get
one last round of golf in as the summer ended. We thought, "Why not raise some money for a local charity?".
That first year, with 24 golfers, we raised $1800 for the Algonquin-Lake in the Hills Interfaith Food Pantry.
In 2015 we raised over $15,000 and in the 11 years of the outing we have
donated over $97,000 to the food pantry.
We are also pleased with our fundraising efficiency, which allows 100% of the monetary donations we receive
to go directly to the Food Pantry.
Our vision is to establish the golf outing as a self-sustaining event that will provide support to the
Algonquin Lake in The Hills Interfaith Food Pantry for years to come. We are asking for your help in realizing
The format is a "5 Hole Random Best Ball". After choosing the best tee-shot of the foursome, each player plays their
ball to completion (picking up at 8 strokes). The best score for the hole becomes the foursome's score. Scores are reported
after the round. 5 holes are picked at random. Best score for those five holes becomes the outing champions.
In case of ties, additional holes will be selected one at a time, until a winner is determined. If tied after
18, then co-champions will be announced, and prizes will be awarded at a later date.
Registrants can to play Red Tail for free (cart fees extra) Monday - Thursday before the outing.
