Newman Golf Classic 2021

The weather was perfect, the course was in tip-top shape, the players came in droves and the sponsors were generous as always. On behalf of the Newman Golf Classic Committee, thank you thank you, thank you to each and everyone of you for joining us at the beautiful Blackhawk Golf Club after a year of absence.

We had a record breaking year. Thanks to your support we have raised over $200,000 to date in support of the St. Joseph Seminary & Newman Theological College. This great success is in no small measure due to continued commitment of the Catholic community in Edmonton and area.

Proudly presented by:


It was an honour to golf along so many friends of Fr. Mike and Ave. We surely missed them both. We were happy to host “Uncle Mike’s Nephews” team:  Jim Patterson and Terry Patterson (nephews) and William Patterson and James Patterson (great-nephews) as well as Sterling Spratt, Davis Spratt, Carson Spratt (Ave’s sons) and Merrill Martin (Ave’s business partner) for “Team Ave.” They surely made the day extra special.

"Uncle Mike's Nephews" played in honour of Fr. Mike

Team Ave played in honour of Ave Spratt

Since we could not gather together at the end of the tournament, we have some special announcements. Congratulations to:

  • Daniel Young, this year’s recipient of Elmer MacGillivray Newman Golf Classic Friend trophy.
  • Tony LaGrange, our Early Bird winner, and 
  • Robert LePage is the lucky winner for our “Cancun in Las Vegas” raffle draw
