The Dave Ellis Pro-Am Golf Tournament

The Dave Ellis Pro-Am Golf Tournament continues to establish itself as one of Canada’s longest running golf tournaments. On June 4 & 5, 2023, the Club once again had the privilege to play host to the annual Pro-Am competition, now in its 37th year.

Over the three decades, this tournament has now single-handedly raised over $760,000 for the South Muskoka Hospital Foundation.

The Ontario Provincial Police - Andy Potts Memorial Golf Tournament

Approached in 2009 to host the fourth annual golf classic, Muskoka Lakes Golf & Country Club saw the opportunity to once again reach out and lend its support for a worthwhile foundation.

Provincial Constable Andrew J. Potts was a proud member of the Ontario Provincial Police, and family and friends created this event to celebrate Andy’s life and give back to the community he loved and served. The funds generated during these events are dispersed to charities which benefit the citizens of Muskoka.
