Scott Knowles Memorial Golf Tournament set for 2017
In September 2011, Miramichi pharmacist Scott Knowles passed away, but his memory remains alive through an annual golf tournament that carries his name. The 5th Annual Scott Knowles Memorial Golf Tournament will take place on August 11, 2017.
A portion of the revenue generated from the tournament goes to the Scott Knowles Memorial Pharmacy Award, which is presented annually to a graduating pharmacy student returning to work in New Brunswick for an independent pharmacy. Proceeds also go to a Minor sports program in Miramichi. To date beneficiaries of this are 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 Miramichi Junior Curling Program and 2016-2017 Miramichi Junior Golf Program.
The son of Stan and Jean Knowles, Scott passed away in September 2011 at the age of 31. He was the President of the New Brunswick Pharmacists Association. He was also a member of the Rotary Club of Newcastle and was involved in the annual Miramichi Rock ‘n Roll Festival. He liked to bowl and loved the great outdoors where he enjoyed snowmobiling, boating, fishing and golfing.
The Scott Knowles Golf Tournament Committee look forward to the continued success of this very special event. We hope to see you on the green August 11, 2017.
