“Since we had to cancel last year, we have decided that this year’s tournament will be the best ever,” event chairman Lee Toole said.

Golfers will gather at the Abercrombie club early on Sept. 16 for a complimentary breakfast and the shotgun start for golfers at 8 a.m.

The tournament is one of the events to raise funds for the maintenance of the Ship Hector and the Heritage Quay.

“We invite companies and individuals to join us for an enjoyable day on the course,” Toole said.
