The 2nd annual Oilersnation Open presented by ATB Financial

A golf tournament was something we always had on the bucket list, but we never really had the chance to put one together. Last summer, we decided to finally give it a go with our Inaugural Oilersnation Open and it ended up being a huge success! Everyone had a great time, the drinks were flowing, and fun was had by all. Now we’re pumped to announce that we’ll be continuing the momentum and will be hosting our second Annual Oilersnation Open this summer!

That’s right, it’s time to prepare your body for another beautiful day out on the links at the Cougar Creek Golf Resort. ATB Financial is a proud sponsor again for this year’s tournaments. Our goal is to up our efforts on prizing and giveaways this year so this will be an event you’re not going to want to miss!

Tell me the details!

When – August 30, 2018 (Thursday)
Where – Cougar Creek Golf Resort
How much – $1000/team or $900 Early Bird price until June 30
Teams – Groups of Four (4)

A banquet will also be held in the clubhouse after the golfing wraps up to make sure you’re fuelled up for the after party. Not only that, we will have a ton of prizes and giveaways all day long including Oilersnation swag bags for all participants. Transportation will also be provided from the Pint Downtown. The bus will take the golfers to and from the golf course.

To sweeten the pot, we’re giving away some prizes to those who take advantage of our Early Bird Pricing! If you sign-up a team before June 30th, your team is entered to win either four Oilersnation Adidas golf tees, or four free rounds of golf to the Quarry Golf Club!

The Gregor Foundation

As always, a portion of all proceeds from your ticket purchase will be donated directly to a local charity. Just like last year, we’ve partnered up with the Gregor Foundation to make sure that our kids are at their most handsome. What is the Gregor Foundation?

The Gregor Foundation was started in 2014 by Jason and Traci Gregor after seeing a need to help. The Foundation provides a new suit for graduation complete with shirt, tie, shoes and socks to less fortunate high school students in Edmonton and area. We work closely with high school counsellors who identify and qualify the students who are in need.

High school can be a challenging time for any young person, but for those students whose families are experiencing severe financial difficulties, simply getting the basic necessities to enable them to attend their own graduation can be very difficult, if not impossible. High school students’ needs often go unnoticed in the community as these students try to blend in and are very private regarding their financial situation. These young men are often forgotten when it comes to receiving much-needed assistance.

“Gregor’s Grads” was formed to fill this gap and provide a helping hand for these deserving students. We believe that by providing financially-challenged students with a sense of normalcy and enabling them to participate in graduation will foster pride, self-esteem and allow them to move forward to the next phase in their lives with wonderful memories and a new suit they can call their own.

Mr. Derks has been a major partner since day one. Their clothing experts fit and tailor all the suits so the boys look great. Mr. Derks uses their connections in the clothing industry so we can fit each grad with their new ensemble for an average of $250.00.

We also want to give a huge shout out to ATB Financial and all of our other sponsors for helping us put this tournament together and bringing our idea to life. Friendly reminder that the Early Bird ticket pricing ends on June 30th. Be sure to enter a team before then to have a chance at winning one of our Early Bird prizes! (Four free rounds of golf to the Quarry Edmonton or 4 Oilersnation Adidas golf tees). Can’t wait to see you all on the course!
