The weather was overcast but still quite comfortable for a fun round of golf at the Richmond Hill Golf and Country Club on September 9th during the CHHMA-COPA Industry Golf Day.  Close to 80 golfers made it out to enjoy the “COVID-friendly” golf tournament format which received great reviews from participants, who relished the opportunity to see colleagues, customers and friends from the industry face-to-face for the first time in months!  

“Considering that we weren’t sure that this event was even going to happen at all after we rescheduled from May due to COVID-19, we are extremely happy with the industry support and participation it received,” commented Sam Moncada, CHHMA President. 

“I would like to personally thank Nicole Gamble, CHHMA-COPA’s event coordinator and our golf committee for working diligently to make this event happen. Thanks also to our sponsors and all the industry participants who ensured this event was a success.”

“The golf tournament is one of our most popular events because of the opportunity to network in a relaxing atmosphere. But, golfers seemed to enjoy this event even more than usual this year,” commented Gamble. “The cocktail reception and dinner were definitely missed, but participants made the most of their time on the course.” 

“We couldn’t be happier with the success of our first in-person event since the pandemic started!

Many thanks go out to our Sponsors; we couldn’t have done it without you!”
