On September 25th, 2021, the second year of the COVID, 96 golfers registered to play at the 25th Annual EGO Golf Tournament at the Cardinal Golf Course just north of Toronto, Ontario. The weather was sunny in the morning and we had a 15 minute rain delay around 3:30 pm in the afternoon.
As the golfers arrived for their tee- off times starting at 10:00 am they were received by hot coffee and kringel at the registration desk by Kariina Järve. The kringels were donated by Ülle Veltmann. Lunch was provided after nine holes and a choice of hamburger or sausage on a bun with a soft drink was available.
After each group posed for their photos, off they went to compete over the next 18 holes on the Cardinal West Course.
