Since 1988 the Northwestern Ontario Sports Hall of Fame has hosted an annual golf tournament to raise funds to help operate our sports heritage facility and provide educational and community programming. Due to restrictions around COVID-19, we are going to change things up a bit. Instead of having people gather in a large group, we are asking our supporters to take on the 2020 Fred Bragnalo Memorial Golf Challenge proudly presented by RBC.


This is How it Works:

  • Format: all 4 players register and then teams of 2 players each challenge each other to a round of 9 or 18 holes at the course of your choice (anywhere in the world!) anytime between July 20th and September 7th.  The type of format to be played (i.e. best-ball, scramble) will be agreed upon by both teams at the start of the round. 

  • Following the challenge round teams are asked to email the following information to nwosport@tbaytel.net or call it into 622-2852:

    • the names and scores of the winners and runners-up

    • date, course, and format played

    • you are also encouraged to submit a photo of each twosome, and post photos on your Facebook, Instagram or Twitter accounts and tagging @nwosport and #nwosportshalloffame

  • The names of the winners of each round will be posted on our virtual leaderboard on the Northwestern Ontario Sports Hall of Fame website and social media channels.

  • Prizes: Winning team members will earn 2 ballots each and the runner-up team members 1 ballot each to be entered into a random draw to win prizes including the top prize of $250. The more challenges you take on the more ballots you can earn.

  • Some Thunder Bay courses are offering special rates to registered participants. Your Paypal receipt will serve as your proof of registration and can be used at participating courses that are offering special rates for your golf CHALLENGE round. Current courses and rates include:

    • Fort William Golf & Country Club - $30 (9 holes), $50 (18 holes) - 475-4721

    • Thunder Bay Country Club – 2 for 1 green fees – 345-8225

    ***Other course discounts may be added throughout the challenge and will be posted online.***


Our silent auction this year is also online we are working on it currently and it will be launched on July 20th. We are also holding a 50/50 draw with a maximum prize payout of $2,000. Tickets are $5 each or 3 for $10 and can be purchased during registration or by calling 622-2852 (best time of day to call is between 12:00 and 5:00 pm).


So register today to take on the 2020 Fred Bragnalo Memorial Golf Challenge and have some fun while supporting the Northwestern Ontario Sports Hall of Fame. You can also fill out our PDF registration form or call (807) 622-2852 or email nwosport@tbaytel.net for further information.
