in Ontario and of those we have 80 percent of them, about 36,500 realtors,
taking part. That is over a half million dollars and gives us even more
money to support more charities and shelters that will have an impact in
Ontario.”
Often miss-portrayed as a profession where they simply throw up a
sign, sell a house and collect a check, for those that see these realtors in
action they will realize that they are much more than that. “This foundation
is our legacy,” adds Leyser. When we are long gone it will be here to help
people. Yes, we are realtors and many people think we are self serving in
things we do, but not only do we sit on hospital boards and church boards,
we also give back to the communities. Everybody deserves to have
shelter so who better than the people who deal with housing everyday to
support the effort to make that happen?”
For the golf event several of the groups were made up of realtors from the
boards within the Flagstick coverage region. Also present to help lead the
event were Tim Lee and Dave Trick. Both men with regional ties serve on
the Foundation Board and the tournament committee. Lee is the owner of
Coldwell Banker Rideau Heartland Realty Brokerage in Smiths Falls while
Trick is a public Governor on the board. Both also happen to be part of the
ownership group at the Perth Golf Course.

Junior & Juvenile Boys’ Better-Ball
Concludes At Timber Ridge
Timber Ridge Golf Club near Brighton, Ontario hosted some of the best
junior-aged male golfers in the province of Ontario on August 25th. The
occasion was the annual playing of the Golf Association of Ontario’s Junior
and Juvenile Boys’ Better-Ball Championship. The tournament was the
last junior event on the association’s schedule for 2008.
Seventy golfers from throughout Ontario teamed up in pairs for the better-
ball format. In the Junior division, Toronto residents Brandon Ng, 15, and
Matthew Wheeler, 17, captured the title with a combined score of 63 (8-under
par). This marks Ng’s second provincial championship title this year, following
his win at the Junior Boys’ Match Play championship in July.
“It was a matter of good timing,” said Ng of the most recent victory. “We
didn’t overlap birdies throughout the round so it worked out for the best.”
Finishing the round at 5-under par (66) to take the silver medal was the
team of Michael Lancaster of Ancaster and Brett Mitchell of Simcoe. Three
teams fired matching 4-under par 67’s to share third place; Daley Byles of
Barrie and Corey Conners of Listowel, Jay Fabbro of Kingston and Ryan
Desveaux of Napanee, and Tyson Louth of Washago and Gavin Worden
of Stouffville.
Luke Shaughnessy, 16, and Kirk Bartley, 16, both of Peterborough,
shot a 69 to top the field in the Juvenile division (16 and under), carding 5
birdies overall. In second place were Cameron and Christopher Lancaster
of Ancaster at 1-under par (70), followed by Port Perry’s Shea Varty and
Karim Corringham of Pickering who finished the day at 71.
The Golf Association of Ontario Junior and Juvenile Boys’ Better-Ball
Championship was first played in 1946 and is open to junior golfers under
the age of 18. Notable past champions include Gerry Kesselring, Kelly
Roberts, and Moe Norman.
