VANCOUVER GOLF TOUR
“Preparing Tomorrows’ Champions”
Dear VGT Friends:
I would like to take this opportunity to thank every one of you for your continued support of the Vancouver Golf Tour. You are an integral part of our community, whether it is as a player, caddie, fan, family member or sponsor.
THANK-YOU ALL FOR YOUR LOYALTY the past 6 years!
We are happy to announce that for the 7th consecutive year, MARKETPLACE IGA, CLEVELAND GOLF/SRIXON CANADA, PAINE EDMONDS LAWYERS, JOHNSTON MEIER INSURANCE and many of our MAJOR SPONSORS are continuing to partner with VGT to ensure our players receive a first class tournament experience at our events. We can’t thank them enough for their continued support of our mission to elevate the game of golf right here in Vancouver!
We have seen an amazing amount of development in the players coming through our tour the past 6 years. And we are extremely proud of their accomplishments, be it graduating from Amateur to Pro on the VGT to making their first top 10’s on the PGA TOUR Canada, or a graduation from Flight B to Championship Flight. It really is amazing to see how much can be learned when the stage is set!
We are especially proud to announce that two of VGT’s Alumni (Adam Hadwin and Roger Sloan) advanced to the final stage of PGA Tour Qualifying school last fall, and will be fully carded members on the 2013 WEB.COM. And just over a week ago a 3rd of our VGT Members, Phil Jonas of Hazelmere Golf Club, advanced his status in Professional golf by qualifying for full status on the European Senior Tour! Congratulations Dr. Phil!
Add to the list 15 VGT Professionals who are fully carded PGA TOUR Canada Members in 2013 and the future looks very strong for our current players and alumni!
