The NDP Golf Tournament is a school tradition. Held at Troon North Golf Club, the annual tournament is designed for golfers of all abilities. It is an 18-hole shot gun start with four person scramble format. The emphasis is on camaraderie and enjoyment for the benefit of the NDP Fund. The event concludes with heavy hors d'oeuvres, cocktails, and awards.
