For all those hockey fans who also enjoy a nice round of golf, coming up is a great chance to get in a round at a top notch course and support a great cause.

The Grand Forks Border Bruins are putting on a golf tournament on Sept. 21 starting at 1 p.m. at the Christina Lake Golf Course.

“It’s our first golf fundraiser that we’ve put together,” said Scott Stewart, board member and educational liason for the Bruins. “We’ve got a number of businesses lined up as sponsors. We’ve got prizes set up. It’s going to be a fun day. The cost is $75 each person and that includes a round of golf, cart, dinner and prizes.”

The tournament is open to anyone and Stewart says the club is hoping it will become an annual event. He added that the money raised will go towards the team’s general account to help pay for general expenses.

“There’s obviously lots of money required to make this team function,” he said. “As coach Nick (Deschenes) turns things around, it’s important to support things financially.”

People can register at the golf course or by emailing Stewart at directly.

“We’ve got some fun things scrambled,” he said. “We hope people come out and make a day of it. It’s meant to be fun. Hopefully people will come out and support the program and maybe win a prize or two.”
