CHIP SHOT - The Leduc Kinettes Ladies Charity Golf Classic

Leduc Kinettes raise thousands with annual charity golf classic

The Leduc Kinettes raised approximately $7,000 for two charities serving the community with the group's annual golf classic.

The Leduc Kinettes raised approximately $7,000 for two charities serving the community with the group’s annual golf classic.

“It was really good, it was a lot of fun,” said co-chair Erin McIntyre, referring to the Aug. 28 tournament held at the Triple Creek Golf Club outside of Millet.

This year’s proceeds were given to STARS, a regular recipient of the classic, and to the Black Gold Health Foundation CT scanner project.

With 88 golfers on the course this year, McIntyre says the tournament is now so big it can afford to take on two charities, in the past the proceeds have gone solely to STARS. Now the two will split the pot 50/50.

“This was the sixth year we’ve done it, it’s been growing,” said McIntyre.

She says the first year of the classic had only 36 golfers participating. “It’s overwhelming . . . it just means the word of this tournament is getting out there.”

While normally all the golfers come from the Leduc community this year boasted women from both Leduc and Beaumont coming out to help the cause.

McIntyre says for her, the highlights of the classic are seeing the donations go to the charities and knowing the golfers involved are having a good time on the course. “It’s not a serious day . . . it’s just come out, have fun.”

With the tournament, proceeds are raised via golf fees, a silent auction, bag draw, card draw and a lotto board.
