The Guelph Police Association hosted their 38th annual golf tournament, The Norma Owen Memorial Golf Tournament, on Sept. 9, 2020 at the Ariss Valley Golf and Country Club. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, only 108 golfers participated in the tournament (1/2 of the usual number of participants). Numerous other precautions were put in place to ensure a successful and safe day for all participants.

This event is held in memory of Constable Norma Owen, a member of the Guelph Police Service who succumbed to cancer in 1983. The Norma Owen Memorial Golf Tournament has been a fixture in the community since the Guelph Police Association first held it in 1983, and it continues to thrive with the ongoing participation and support of our corporate sponsors, local businesses, members, retirees, and community members.

The Guelph Police Association supports Hospice Wellington with the proceeds of the tournament. The Association is thrilled to announce the proceeds of the 2020 tournament were $25,400.

To date, including 2020’s donation of $25,400, The Guelph Police Association’s Norma Owen Golf Tournament has raised $432,725 for cancer-related charities since the tournament’s inception in 1983.

The cheque presentation took place today, Dec. 22, 2020 at Hospice Wellington.
