Annual Golf Outing


The ACT NOW Executive Board has decided to cancel this year’s Golf Outing in August due to COVID-19. To begin organizing the event on such late notice would be very difficult. Because we rely on our business community for sponsorships and donations, we do not feel comfortable asking for their support when they have been hit hard financially by the pandemic. We respect that they will need time to re-open and establish new guidelines.

The 2021 GOLF OUTING has been set for August 14, 2021 at Redwood Golf Course.


Please join us for our annual Golf Outing Fundraiser which will take place on Saturday, August 10, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. (Registration begins at 9:00 a.m.) at the Redwood Golf Course located at 4345 Redwood Drive, Roscommon.

Registration fee is $50 per person and includes 18 holes of golf, 4-person scramble, hole games, golf cart, prizes, Chinese Raffle, hot dogs on the turn and a pulled pork dinner afterwards.

All proceeds from this event benefit ACT NOW & Gerrish Police Department’s community programs and projects. This is our biggest fundraiser of the year.

If you would like to participate, donate a prize or be a hole sponsor, please click on the link below which includes a registration form and information on how to be a hole sponsor. Hole sponsors will have a sign with their name on it at a tee box on the course.

For more information, please contact Sgt. Norm LaBonte at (989) 821-5207 Ext. 285 or email him at sgt.labonte@gerrishpolice.org.
