Club Car Steps Up to Support Hulbert Memorial Championship and Hulbert Memorial Fund

(Pickering, Ont., - April 15, 2011) - The Ontario PGA is pleased to announce that Club Car has agreed to become the title sponsor of the Hulbert Memorial Championship. The Hulbert Memorial Championship is one of the longest running Ontario PGA events and proceeds from the event go to the Hulbert Memorial Fund.

"Club Car has stepped up in a big way to support this event," said Ontario PGA President Dustin Kerr-Taylor. "Russ Hooper and his sales team at Club Car have been great supporters of the Ontario PGA and we look forward to a long and prosperous relationship with them," added Kerr-Taylor.
The history of this event dates back to Arthur Hulbert who was the Professional at Thornhill Golf and Country Club from 1924 until his sudden death in 1945.  Mr. Hulbert's demise left his family in dire straits and so together with the Members of Thornhill, his fellow Professionals staged a tournament in his honour with all the benefits going to aid his family.

This was the beginning of the Hulbert Memorial Fund.  Its purpose is to assist Ontario Professionals or their families who through illness, death or catastrophic circumstances require support.

"All of us at Club Car are pleased to support such a worthy Golf event," said Club Car Canadian Sales Manager for Central/Eastern Canada, Russ Hooper. "This event is an extension of Club Cars continued support of the Ontario PGA and its members. We have had a long standing relationship with the Ontario PGA since 1995 and we look forward to continuing this tradition," added Hooper.
The Hulbert Memorial Championship is set to take place on October 17, 2011 at Deer Ridge Golf Club. Teams consist of one Head Professional and three executives from the golf course. Typically a private facility would send three directors while a public golf course would send owners, superintendants and General Managers.
