Our 40th annual Golf Classic will honour former Councillor Allan J. Levine

The  40th annual Côte Saint-Luc Golf Classic will take place at Meadowbrook  Golf Course on Thursday, July 4. Some 120 golfers will tee off beginning at 7 a.m., with a special awards banquet honouring former city councillor and legendary school teacher Allan J. Levine at 5794 Parkhaven Avenue at 1 p.m.

I will be back as the co-chair for the 13th year in a row, with  Councillor Steven Erdelyi joining me.  This year’s event will repeat the popular new  format launched in 2016, as well as the two  specific age classifications whereby players can compete (on a friendly basis) amongst their own age groups: MASTERS (age 65 and older) and EAGLE (age 64 and younger). The title sponsors will be  Marc Ezerer and Hagay Brener from Vantage Realty Group  Michael Maislin of Total Customs Services, Mitch Heft and Tony Lapia from Orangetheory Fitness on Somerled Avenue in NDG and businessman Mitch Garber. We also thank Silver Star Mercedes Benz, McDonald’s Côte Saint-Luc  and Quartier Cavendish,

Allan J. Levine was a member of Côte Saint-Luc City Council for over 30 years. He also taught math and science at Wagar High School for more than three decades, where for a number of years he doubled as the Driver’s Education instructor. Well-known for his great sense of humour, he remains active in the community today as president of the  Brigadier Frederick Kisch  Branch 97 of the Canadian Legion, a position he holds with great pride as a tribute to his late father who was a veteran. Allan has also played an important role in the local tennis community.

The format  for the Golf Classic is called “Scramble” and is quite popular in today’s golf outings. This helps speed up the game for all players and is being introduced as a result of many requests from previous participants. The players decide which golfer hits the best shot off the tee and then all players from that foursome play their next shot from that point. Play continues from hole to hole in the same fashion for the rest of the outing.  The Hole-in-One contest will be back at the 11th hole. A hole-in-one will bring you a Mercedes-Benz on a free loan for a weekend.

In case of thunderstorms on Thursday July 4, the luncheon  will proceed with festivities at the Aquatic and Community Center and golf will be postponed until  July 11. The same starting times will be honored at Meadowbrook Golf Club, 8370 Côte Saint-Luc Road.  

Brian Wilde

The Golf Classic Luncheon Honourary Chair is Alan Maislin, president of the Board of Directors of the CIUSSS West-Central-Montreal and a well plugged in member to the professional sports scene. Special guest speaker this year will be well known sports broadcaster Brian Wilde, who covers the Montreal Canadiens for Global TV Montreal.

The registration fee is $35 (tax included),  which includes nine holes of golf, a catered sit down buffet luncheon, award-winning trophies for contests such as Longest Drive, Closest to the Pin, and the opportunity to win one of many door prizes. Guest fees for non-players who wish to attend the luncheon is $20.00/person.

Once again, donations will be accepted for the the Pierre Brunet Parks and Recreation Bursary Fund sponsored by local McDonalds Restaurants Cote Saint-Luc Shopping Center Franchisee Pierre Brunet. This helps families who cannot afford to register their child in a program and takes into account requests from children with special needs as well.

Community leader Alan Maislin will help us out once again with his marvelous connections and announce a special guest speaker from the world of sports soon.
