Putt 4 Me

On Friday I participated in a charity event that is all about community. It’s sponsored by local businesses and in support of two major charities that help out a lot of good people. It’s called Putt-Fore-Me and it is in support of MS – the Multiple-Sclerosis Society of Canada, and Participation House.


What is it? Each business that has supported and sponsored the event has a task to perform, which is to build their own mini-golf hole in their store, and the golfers travel from place to place to meet the staff and try to beat their hole like a cross town mini-putt course!


This year saw 11 locations which had myself and about 30 fellow golfers traipsing all over Brantford, from Hole #1 at Everything Automotive to the ARTC. My particular group started at hole #2.


It began for us at the Brantford Firefighter’s Main Station Hall.


It involved fire hoses and stairs and was surprisingly tricky.


Then it was off to Clarence Street Dental


It had a tropical theme!


Participation House & the MS Society teamed up for a hole


It might look simple but it wasn’t!


We found an out of the way small business in Mulrain Guitars which focused more on their craft than making a super challenging hole. It was kind of a Rube Goldberg machine, you just had to start your ball on its way.


It of course ended on a deconstructed guitar.


There was only one outdoor hole and its challenge was mostly the snow, cold, and wind! That was Dragonfly Landscaping.


This was just Friday!


Meridian Credit Union had the most creative hole as voted by the golfers and it was a cross-Canada tour which started with the Rockies,


You can tell it’s the rockies because of the bear.


Then the Prairies,


Tractors and Horses of course. But no cattle?


I suppose this represented Ontario & Quebec?


Quite a few got caught in this beaver dam.


And finally ended in the Maritimes.


Ocean to Ocean across Canada!


Very fitting for Canada’s 150th.

Another Canada themed hole came from Crossing All Bridges


They had the anthem on there and if you landed on it you needed to sing!


Forgive the blurry photo on that one.


The food providers for the day also challenged us with a deceptively tricky hole from Sweet Bakery


Harder than it looked!


And another from Strodes & the Pit


The smell alone was a distraction here.


We went to the jungle with ARTC



and finished by running the tires at Everything Automotive.


Hit it hard. Very hard.


It was a fun day, and for a good cause, and that is the sort of event I love to take part in.
