The tournament is a testament to the memory of Gordon “Busher” Bennett and his son Tim Bennett, two outstanding Dragoons lost to cancer.

This event is an excellent opportunity for all serving and retired Dragoons, friends of the Regiment and the Bennett family to gather in a social setting and enjoy some camaraderie, reminisce about our friends /family, and enjoy a round of golf with donations going to the Cancer Society.
