The 6th Annual Fore-Play for Charity Ottawa Women’s Networking Golf Tournament is taking place on Thursday, September 9th, 2021 with funds raised in support of The Royal Ottawa Foundation for Mental Health. Ottawa has such an amazing women’s business community, we are here to support each other – on and off the greens.


Thursday, September 9th, 2021


The Marshes Golf Club, 320 Terry Fox Drive, Kanata


Registration opens July 17th, 2020

what to expect

A day unlike any other, Fore-Play for Charity is Ottawa's best women's only networking tournament for professional business women looking to make valuable connections. Not only is it a lot of fun (see the testimonials below!), but the day raises much needed funds for mental health programs and research at The Royal.


Shotgun start

After a quick registration with The Marshes, and lunch inside the clubhouse with all the guests, our lady golfers are ushered to their carts for a welcome speech and golf course instructions. Shotgun is 12pm sharp!


Beauty station

With 100% of the proceeds donated to charity, beauty passes are sold online prior to the event to be able to coordinate times with the stylist volunteers. Your beauty pass entitles you to glam application from makeup artist Leslie-Anne Barrett and her beauty team, as well as hair styling from The Loft.


Gala dinner

When you register for Fore-Play for Charity, you choose your foursome's meal options: beef, fish or vegetarian. The Marshes team presents a delicious four course meal with wine for guests to enjoy while evening festivities take place. This is also where we announce all the winners from the golf day, and host a live auction.



Throughout the upcoming year, the Fore-Play for Charity team will continue to support and help raise awareness for The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre and The Walk-In Counselling Centre.


For those in immediate need, the Royal has launched the C-Prompt Clinic, which was created to meet urgent mental health needs while other services in our region were closed or scaled back due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
