Ready to tee off on the Peninsula

Ardmore Golf Course pro Griffin Gilmore will tee off from dawn to dusk in the Golf-A-Thon for ALS on June 21

Ardmore Golf course pro Griffin Gilmore is taking part in Friday’s Golf-A-Thon for ALS.

Ardmore Golf Course pro Griffin Gilmore will tee off from dawn to dusk in the Golf-A-Thon for ALS on June 21.

At 7 a.m., Gilmore begins a marathon day of golf and is taking pledges to help raise money to benefit the ALS Society of British Columbia. The Golf-A-Thon for ALS is taking place across the province.

Gilmore said his day-long golf game (he expects to wrap it up at around 9 p.m.) will be him and a friend, although other folks will be joining him along the way.

Pledges of $25 or more will get donators a tax receipt. Donations are being taken at the Ardmore Golf Course in North Saanich during the event. People can also donate directly to the cause at www.golfathonforals.ca.
