In Memory of Ian MacKnight

The sudden loss of our Golf for Kids Sake Committee Chair, Ian MacKnight, late last year, has been felt deeply by our organization. In his memory, we have introduced two new awards at our annual Golf for Kids Sake tournament - Women's and Men's Longest Drive Awards. As an avid golfer, Ian would have appreciated a skill challenge named in his honour.
