KENORA – On July 13, 2018, Grand Council Treaty #3 hosted their 8th Annual Golf Tournament at Couchiching First Nation’s Heron Landing Golf Course. The tournament was a 4-person scramble with 38 teams successfully registered. The tournament offered the potential to win $25,000 cash for a hole-in-one on #6, as well as prize money for the longest drive, closest to the centre line, skins and cp’s. Congratulations to this year’s winning teams!
