They are 16 golfers (handpicked) of the greater Quebec city area who meet twice a year (spring and fall) for a few years in the context of a golf tournament (54 holes) spread out over 3 days called the Cup GOLFA (for Godin/Falardeau).

This year, the COVID-19 has somewhat changed the plans of these irreducible of the little white ball, forcing them to move the tournament to the summer (20-21 and 22 June), and in the alleys of the golf club of the region of Québec, in particular those of the golf de la Faune, instead of a one club outside of Quebec. Coup de theatre this year, as the 54th and final hole of the competition, the victory went to the conservative mp for Portneuf–Jacques-Cartier, Joël Godin, who has stalled his approach, for a birdie, outstripping, by a single small point (after a clever calculation, and a blend of points and handicap) in the final standings, Christian Falardeau, who dominates wins this classic friendly.
