VGT Announces New Partnership with the BC GOLF HOUSE SOCIETY for Tradition Vancouver Golf Classic at Shaughnessy!
The BC Golf House Society and the Vancouver Golf Tour are pleased to announce a new partnership to present one of Vancouver’s most exciting Pro-Am events of 2012. The event this year will be hosted at the Shaughnessy Golf & Country Club on May 28th, site of the hugely successful 2011 RBC Canadian Open. Shaughnessy was voted the 7th best golf course on the PGA Tour in 2011 by the PGA Tour players. This year marks the 25th playing of the annual Tradition Vancouver Golf Classic.
The format for the event will feature four amateur golfers paired with one of British Columbia’s top thirty local professionals. All players will play their own ball in a 3 of 5 best net format followed by a reception and banquet after the golf.
Barrie McWha, Executive Director for BC Golf House, stated that “The Tradition has long been one of the largest fundraisers of the Society and we feel that this opportunity to partner with the Vancouver Golf Tour will only enhance the event. The amateurs not only get to play a world-renowned golf course but they will also share their day with a top caliber Professional golfer on their team along with a banquet and a great tee gift making for a fantastic tournament experience. This will only enhance the Tradition Vancouver.”
Fraser Mulholland, Commissioner of the Vancouver Golf Tour, added “We are very excited about working with BC Golf House on this event. It is a great opportunity for our players to test their games on one of the PGA Tour’s best golf courses and continue developing their skills that may have them end up in the BC Golf Hall of Fame one day.”
The event is sure to be a sell out and entries are already available on-line at bcgolfhouse.com
