Golfing to raise funds for the South Huron Trail is returning in 2021.

Instead of the traditional tournament format, this year there are staggered tee times for golfers.

There are golf times starting at 9 a.m. and continuing every nine minutes afterwards.

South Huron Trail Fundraising Golf takes place on Monday, August 23, 2021 at Ironwood Golf Club.

Golfers must register ahead of time, with Ausable Bayfield Conservation, to get tee times.

Please contact Sharon Pavkeje by email at or by phone at 519-235-2610 or toll-free 1-888-286-2610, extension 221 to pre-register and confirm your tee time.

(Payment is made, the day of the fundraiser, directly to Ironwood Golf Club.)

Green fees are $38.75 plus tax. If you wish a cart, then costs are $16.95 plus tax (divider available). Junior golfers and Ironwood members will receive a reduced fee. (Please indicate when you register).

Lunch is available for purchase at the Ironwood restaurant following a game for those who want lunch.

Ironwood Golf Club is located at 70969 Morrison Line, two kilometres (about one mile) east of Exeter, south of Highway 83.

Donations to Ausable Bayfield Conservation Foundation (ABCF) for the South Huron Trail are also welcome and a charitable gift receipt for income tax purposes is provided for donations.

Community volunteers helped the South Huron Trail Fundraiser Golf Tournament raise more than $63,000 for the trail over almost a decade and a half between 2005 and 2019. The charity golf event was cancelled in 2020 as a safety measure during the pandemic. The charity golf activity is back in 2021 but the committee is changing the format for this year in order to help keep group numbers small and groups of golfers safely distanced from each other. The community golf fundraiser is hosted by the Ausable Bayfield Conservation Foundation with volunteer support. 

“We invite you to have a fun game of golf and support the South Huron Trail at the same time,” said Dave Frayne, Chair of the Ausable Bayfield Conservation Foundation (ABCF). “We hope to return to our regular golf tournament format next year if possible,” he said. “We hope this new format for 2021 is a great way to continue to raise funds for the South Huron Trail while also doing our part to help keep people safe. We are looking forward to a morning of enjoyable activity while supporting our community at the same time.”

The year 2021is the 15th year for this golf fundraiser.

A golf tournament for the trail was started in 2005 by friends and family of the late Gord Strang. 

Gord was very involved in the initial stages of fundraising and developing the South Huron Trail which has been a much-appreciated benefit to the community and a destination for many visitors.

The golf tournament raises an average of $5,000 each year towards enhancements and the ongoing care needed on the trail, boardwalks, and pedestrian bridges. 

The golf fundraiser committee wishes you and your family good health during these exceptional times and looks forward to seeing you at the 15th South Huron Trail Golf Fundraiser, with a new format, in 2021.
