The 4th Annual Sylvania Fire Fighters 2243 Golf Outing  is August 20, 2021 at Maple Grove Golf Course in Lambertville, Michigan.  Tee time is 9:00 a.m., registration opens at 8:00 a.m.

Funds raised by the event benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).  Firefighters historically have strong ties to MDA, nationally and locally, and have been raising funds for the organization for decades. 

It’s just going to be a blast,"  said Sylvania IAFF 2243 president Ryan Sedlock.  "Everybody's getting together and going to have a great time.  Get out with your old friends, meet some new friends, come out and have a good time with your Sylvania firefighters."

Sylvania's Fire Fighters who are not on duty will be out on the course that day too.


"The guys get together, and go have fun with their buddies," said the longtime Fire Fighter, a Lieutenant with the Sylvania Township Fire Department.  "And we absolutely love that members of the public will be out there too, having a good time alongside us." 

Sylvania's Fire Fighters are active throughout the year with charity work.  Their two main fundraisers are the Pancake Breakfast in June and the summer golf event.

"I’ve said it before, it's more than us just coming to work and getting in our truck and going out and helping the community, much more than that,"  Sedlock asserted.  "We help our community, we love our community, and we want to see our community thrive.  We hope to be seen as a positive force."

At the event on August 20  food will be catered in, drinks available, plus raffle prizes, skins and mulligans, special betting holes and contests.  A favorite feature from the last golf outing will be brought back--At the sixth hole, golfers can have the advantage of the red tee... if they pay ten dollars and wear a dress.

"I told my wife to go out to the Goodwill and buythe ugliest dresses and hats she could find," laughs Sedlock.  "It was all in good fun."

There will be a "Fill the Boot" display at the course on event day for those who would like to donate more, and holes can be bought for $100 with signage included.

Registration is now open, register as soon as possible with Lt. Sedlock.  Cost is $70 per person, $280 per team, register now and pay on event day at the golf course.   Contact Ryan Sedlock by email--  

Maple Grove Golf Couse is only short drive from Sylvania, 6360 Secor Rd, Lambertville, Michigan.
