The Poultry Industry Council held its charity golf event September 1 at Foxwood Golf Club in Baden, Ont.

The 2021 Poultry Industry Council’s (PIC) annual charity golf tournament couldn’t have happened on a more perfect day.

More than 160 golfers had a great time at Foxwood Golf Club in Baden, Ont., where everyone benefitted from a day out to safely reconnect with colleagues in the poultry sector.

There were many memorable moments of the day, with Happy Gilmore shots as well as lots of contest winners.

Orrie Alexander was the golfer to beat for the day, winning both the putting contest and the longest drive.

The best team award went to the group from Nieuwland Feed & Supply, which included Mat Harrison, Scott Nieuwland, Kevin Ottens and Brandon Rumph. The team turned in an incredible score of 14 under par.

All contest winners and photo highlights can be found on PIC’s website.

“The Annual PIC Golf Tournament is a highlight for the industry each year and we have been so fortunate to be able to continue to host it during the pandemic,” says PIC chair Ed Verkley.

“It was wonderful to see so many of the industry representatives and producers in person. Myself and the PIC staff look forward to next year with the return of a shot gun start and a return of our banquet dinner.”

The day was made possible by numerous sponsors, volunteers from the sector, the golf course and PIC staff. Funds raised during the event directly support PIC’s delivery of educational programs and training.
