The Weyburn Police Association is taking registration now for their 6th Annual Golf Tournament, being held on Friday, September 1st.

Constable Lisa Robertson said they're hoping for about 24 teams of four.

"If you'd like to get a team in, please contact the (WPS) office [306-848-3250] or contact myself [] and we'll get you a spot reserved. It's a Texas scramble format, $110 per golfer. There's 18 holes, a great supper, we have tons of awesome prizes. It's going to be a fun afternoon and evening, so please try to attend if you can," she invited. 

She said teams need to register before August 28th.

"We have had the spots filled up completely in the past and we're almost at that level again, so we're trying to get there and go above if we can, we'd like to try and fill up as many as we can just to keep it running smoothly. There's going to be lots of fun things to do while on the course. Lots of great people to visit with.""

Robertson said they have plenty of great sponsors that have donated some really amazing prizes. 

All funds raised from this event go back into the community.

'It's just a way that our association can give back to the community," she shared. "We will decide as the year goes on where the funds will be directed to. We try to pick a couple different ones."

Those include the Weyburn Salvation Army, Mending Little Hearts, and Blessing Bags. 

"In our community, we try to make sure everyone is taken care of, and there are different needs for different people, so we try to make sure we can help out wherever we can."

She said some of the off-duty members of the Weyburn Police Service like to take part, as well as some teams from different associations throughout Saskatchewan from different cities.

"There are also just members of the community," Robertson noted. "We like to see as many people from the cCommunity come out and enjoy the day with us. You'll see many of the officers working some of the holes, and just participating in whatever we can just to be out and about."

She added, the Weyburn Golf Club is busy with tournaments all summer, and, "the fall is kind of nice for everyone just to get back on track and wind down the summer with a a fun tournament. It's a great way to start off your long weekend, come out for the afternoon and have great supper at the golf course and then carry on with the rest of your weekend."
