Golf Tournament Gives Swagelok Staff a Shot at In-house Fame

This one's for the associates, with proceeds going toward fire relief programs in Fort McMurray

Many of our associates and their guests got into the afternoon with flashy golf outfits - too bad there was no prize for the most fashionable!


There are a lot of people at Edmonton Valve & Fitting who have never had the chance to play in our annual charity golf tournament for the Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation. And it's not because they wouldn't enjoy playing, but because that tournament is primarily an event held for our customers.

But on September 10th associates from our Edmonton, Drayton, and Fort Mac offices got the chance to show off their golfing skills as we launched the first Edmonton Valve Associate Open. With associates and their spouses in attendance the event took place at the Mill Woods Golf Course and each player’s entry fee going to support the Fort McMurray Food Bank to help with fire relief.

No experience required

"It was a pretty relaxed day," says Richard Llewellyn of our customer service desk, who is one of the tournament organizers. "The weather started out a bit chilly and wet but it definitely improved and the sun came out for a great afternoon of golf.”

All associates and guests had a great time on the course. There were 4 first-time golfers and half a dozen golfers who have only hit the greens once or twice before. There were a few near-misses with golf carts almost being hit by stray golf balls but everyone got away safely.

Recognition

The day ended with a barbecue dinner and awards for longest drive for men and women, closest to the pin, and a few other categories including the top team prize and the most honest team! And although there were no prizes for best dressed, there were some associates that took their golf fashion to the next level.

Overall the event is considered to a great success. Everyone in attendance had an awesome time with lots of laughs both on and off the green, and most importantly raising money for a cause that we are happy to support. With golf season coming close to an end we are already looking forward to the next associate event and sharing it with our readers – stay posted!
