The annual Côte Saint-Luc Golf Classic is scheduled for Thursday, July 6 at Meadowbrook Golf Club (8370 Côte Saint Luc Rd.). Starting times for the nine-hole course are from 7am to 10am. A buffet luncheon follows at the Côte Saint-Luc Aquatic and Community Centre (5794 Parkhaven Ave.).
 
Registration takes place at the Aquatic and Community Centre starting May 15. The cost to register is $30. Space is limited.
 
In the event of strong rain, the luncheon will still take place as scheduled but the tournament will be rescheduled for Tuesday, July 11, with the same starting times
 
Côte Saint-Luc will be honouring this year Johnny Elias – a long-time volunteer and past owner of the Grand Slam Baseball School. Elias has recently agreed to loan nearly 50 years’ worth of baseball memorabilia to Côte Saint-Luc. The city will announce its plans at the luncheon on where the items will be showcased.

“Johnny was a professional minor league baseball player and later got to know players from the Expos and visiting teams quite well,” Mayor Mitchell Brownstein said. “He put together a remarkable collection over the years and we’re very excited to be able to share it with the public in Côte Saint-Luc.”
 
Côte Saint-Luc will also officially inaugurate the Pierre Brunet Parks and Recreation Bursary Fund, which is sponsored by local McDonald’s franchisee Pierre Brunet. The Fund will be used to help local families who need financial help to register their children in recreation programs. Funds will also support children with special needs. 

“Pierre Brunet has been involved in our helping our community for many years,” said Councillor Mike Cohen, who is the co-chair of the event along with Councillor Sam Goldbloom. “This new initiative will have a direct impact in the lives of many kids in our community.”
 
The Golf Classic is open to all with participants slotted into groups of players ages 64 and younger or ages 65 and older.
 
The luncheon will include trophies, guest speakers and door prizes. There will be snacks on the golf course and souvenir packages available.
