Naples golf tournament to benefit cancer patients on June 17

The 15th Margery Coughlin Pawluk Invitational Golf Tournament is set for Friday, June 17, at Reservoir Creek Golf Course in Naples.

With a four-person scramble format, the tournament starts with registration, brunch and driving range at 9:30 a.m., followed by an 11 a.m. shotgun start. At 4 p.m., there will be dinner with a cash bar, an awards presentation and live entertainment.

The cost is $135 per golfer and includes golf, a cart, brunch, a prime rib and shrimp dinner, awards and tee gifts. A “dinner only” registration is $45 per person.


The Mitchell-Joseph Insurance Agency is sponsoring a $10,000 hole-in-one contest during the tournament.

All proceeds benefit the Margery Coughlin Pawluk Cancer Patient Needs Fund, which helps patients of the Wilmot Cancer Institute’s Sands Cancer Center – on the Thompson Health campus in Canandaigua – with the unexpected costs of a long illness.


Since its inception, the Pawluk tournament has raised a total of more than $165,000 for the fund, created in memory of a Naples resident who was a nurse at the VA Medical Center in Canandaigua as well as a mother of three. Organizers were forced to cancel the tournament in 2020 and 2021, due to the pandemic, so this year’s is the first since 2019.
