Thank you for supporting the 17th annual BackSwing Golf Tournament which took place on Thursday, September 9.

Just like last year - this year’s tournament looked a little different from a “traditional shotgun tournament” as we were still required to follow strict COVID-19 protocols.

CMCC and Bayview Golf and Country Club were equally committed to ensuring the health and safety of all the golfers and staff and designed the event accordingly. The tournament was scheduled with set tee times and this year, we offered even more lunch stations on the course with BBQ items, beverages and snacks, two alcoholic beverage tickets, and a “Happy Hour Hole” on the lower patio with pulled pork sliders to finish your round with. Also new this year, we offered more contests than ever - keep reading below to find out who the lucky winners were!

As a part of registration, the Division of Clinical Education was pleased to hold treatment outreach for the BackSwing Golf Tournament! Two of CMCC’s talented clinicians supervised a group of eight interns while they provided chiropractic treatment to golfers at the event. To maintain social distancing regulations the cohort was divided into two groups. Participants were asked to register for the 20-minute treatment increments, prior to the event to avoid line ups. Thank you for all those who participated in our outreach!

To date, CMCC BackSwing Golf Tournaments have raised more than $600,000. These much needed funds help maintain CMCC’s role as an international leader in chiropractic education, research and patient care. Last year, although restricted by the challenges of the pandemic, we are proud to say we were able to raise over $30,000!

Although 2021 has been another challenging year for all of us, we look forward to announcing how much we were able to raise at this year’s tournament and online auction. We know whatever the revenue amount is, we could not have done it without the support of our sponsors, donors, participants and volunteer –we are so thankful for you!
