Inaugural Matt Cousins Memorial Golf Tournament raises $75,000 for Wallaceburg lacrosse groups

The Matt Cousins Memorial Golf Tournament was held at Hidden Hills on Saturday, May 25, 2024.

The tournament, held in honour of the late Matt Cousins, raised a whopping $75,000 for a trio of Wallaceburg lacrosse groups.

Matt’s mother Ellen Muxlow and step-father Eric Ruggles told the Sydenham Current the weather cleared up just in time for the 10 a.m. tee off.

A total of 218 players took part in the tournament, with locally donated prizes, a massive 50/50 draw and three baby racoons bouncing around the course all day.

The $75,000 raised will be donated to Wallaceburg Minor Lacrosse, the Wallaceburg Red Devils and Leave Your Mark Lacrosse.

Ellen and Eric said the second annual tournament is booked for Saturday, May 24, 2025.

Dana Haggith caught up with Ellen and Eric for an interview. Listen, below:
