To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of the Kingswood Classic, 58 golfers took to the Sussex Golf course to “Play with a Purpose” of raising funds for financial aid and scholarships for Kingswood students.
Golfers were greeted at Hole #4 by celebrity guest for the day Bryan Trottier, six-time Stanley Cup champion. Bryan later shared at the Kingswood Classic Awards Banquet following the round of golf.
In honour of the 20th anniversary, several golfers were recognized for participating for 10 years or more in the Kingswood Classic, including alumnus Peter Beckwith, who has golfed 18 of the 20 golf tournaments.
Other special guests included Doug Nelson, a registered PGA Golf Pro from Halifax, Nova Scotia where golfers were challenged to “beat the pro” on hole #6.
