19th Annual "Fore a Very Good Cause" Golf Tournament
When: Monday, June 14, 2021
Where: Brooklawn Country Club
500 Algonquin Road, Fairfield, CT
Tee off with The Hole in the Wall Gang Camp as we return to the historic Brooklawn Country Club for our 19th Annual “Fore a Very Good Cause” Golf Tournament. After forgoing an on-site outing last year, we look forward to hitting the links once again to benefit our year-round programs. To promote the safety of all, foursomes will tee off on a rolling basis and refuel on-course at "Chuck Wagons" featuring "grab & go" hearty fare throughout the 18-hole round. Friendly competition will include putting and drive contests for pro shop prizes, and On The Spot Photos will capture memories of a fun-filled day. To comply with social distancing guidelines, we will not have our traditional event receptions and instead share out a virtual program with camper family reflections. Following play, foursomes are invited to enjoy cocktails and hors d'oeuvres on the patio before departure. Additional outing modifications and club protocols will be communicated closer to the tournament date.
Foursome tee times will be assigned every 10 minutes beginning at 9:30 a.m. and concluding by 2:00 p.m. We will do our best to assign tee times in accordance with player preferences.
Tee Time Blocks:
9:30 – 11:00 a.m.

THE 18TH ANNUAL “FORE A VERY GOOD CAUSE” GOLF TOURNAMENT-MAY 11TH, 2020
Due to COVID-19, the 18th Annual “Fore a Very Good Cause” Golf Tournament scheduled for Monday, May 11th at Brooklawn Country Club was canceled. Thanks to the generosity of outing sponsors and players, more than $100,000 was raised to benefit Camp.
17th ANNUAL “FORE A VERY GOOD CAUSE” GOLF TOURNAMENT-JULY 22, 2019
It was all sun and games as 92 Camp friends teed off for the 17th annual “Fore A Very Good Cause” Golf Tournament on July 22nd at the historic Brooklawn Country Club in Fairfield, Conn.
After an energizing brunch to kick-start the day, players were welcomed by Hole in the Wall Board Chair Ray Lamontagne who recognized Title Sponsor Travelers and thanked fellow outing Co-Chairs Doug Cannaliato and Dennis Poster for their leadership. Players were reminded of the impact their generosity and participation has on the children and families served by Hole in the Wall as camper Dad, Andy, shared his family’s journey during his daughter Karina’s diagnosis of Stage 4 Medulloblastoma brain cancer. Andy described how a pediatric cancer diagnosis takes its toll on the whole family, and with them every step of the way has been Camp.
Inspired by the Lubowicki family, players revved up their carts and headed to their starting holes. Throughout the round, golfers refueled on frozen desserts courtesy of Shake Shack and an endless supply of sugary and salty treats and cold beverages thanks to Camp’s Snack Mobile. On The Spot Photos snapped pictures of each foursome and gifted players custom commemorative outing magnets in minutes. Camp’s Key Corner provided players with the opportunity to try their luck by purchasing a key that might later unlock tickets behind home plate to see the Yankees take on their rivals, the Boston Red Sox, at an upcoming game in the Bronx.
As players wrapped up their day on the links, it was time to kick back and enjoy the evening reception featuring passed hors d’oeuvres, a raw bar, carving stations and buffet at the Clubhouse. A spirited putting contest provided some friendly competition, as did the auction which culminated with a surprise 2020 US OPEN package available to the highest bidder!
No player left empty handed, as goody bags filled with Camp-branded Titleist golf balls and koozie mugs awaited each player as the festivities concluded. All of the generosity and support from the day resulted in $182,000 raised to support our mission.
