A record for the 40th Classic

A record for the 40th Classic


The 40thth presentation of the Desjardins Golf Classic for the benefit of the Hôtel-Dieu de Lévis Foundation (FHDL), on July 6, in the fairways of the Lévis golf club, brought together 160 participants and some fifty partners (including Dessercom) and raised $60,000 (a record) to support the development of the Hôtel-Dieu de Lévis with the purchase of equipment in order to significantly increase the number of surgeries and outpatient examinations carried out on the territory of Lévis.

Since its inception, the Classic has donated more than $1,185,572 to the Hôtel-Dieu de Lévis. Pictured, in usual order: Patrick Simard, President and CEO of the CISSS de Chaudière-Appalaches; Nathalie Samson, Director General of the FHDL; Dr Clarence Pelletier, Chairman of the Board of Dessercom; Francine Bouchard, representative of Desjardins and member of the board of directors of the FHDL; and Julie Suzanne Doyon, President of the Board of Directors of the FHDL. 

$10,000 richer

Antoine Rouleau, co-owner of the Blaxton Pub and Grill restaurants, is $10,000 richer thanks to his golf skills. A member of the La Tempête de Lévis golf club and part of the Chevaliers group (there are about fifty of them) who gather every Wednesday to compete with each other, Antoine had a lucky hand during the official meeting on June 29, when that on hole number 17, this superb par 3 ranging from 133 (white tees) to 159 yards (blue), he scored his first career hole-in-one. At the same time, he has won the cumulative prize pool since the beginning of the introduction of this special purse at the Knights, nine years ago, which stood at $ 10,000 for a feat of its kind. In the photo, in the usual order: Jérome Jolicoeur, Jean Dionne, Bernard Tremblay and Antoine Rouleau. Needless to say, the champagne flowed freely. 

Golfa Spring 2022

The Golfa Cup, a friendly 54 hole golf competition initiated a few years ago by Joël Godin and Christian Falardeau and which brings together twice a year (spring and fall) 16 golfers and friends from the Quebec region, held over three days, June 18-19 and 20, in the fairways of the Thetford Mines golf club. The spring version of the 2022 Golfa Cup crowned Pierre Bélanger, who appears in the center of the photo, with those who grabbed 2nd place, on an equal footing, Jacques Dupuis (left) and Joël Godin (right). Photographer Guy Rainville was responsible for organizing the spring tournament.  

In memory

July 13, 1982. For the first time, a major baseball all-star game was played outside the United States, more precisely at the Olympic Stadium in Montreal, filled to capacity. The National League won 4-1, causing the 11th defeat in a row to the representatives of the American.
