Vancouver Golf Tour

Heading into its 14th year in 2020, the Vancouver Golf Tour (VGT) has been giving BC’s local professional and amateur golfers the opportunity to develop their tournament skills in a PGA Tour-like environment without the added costs of travelling.  We are extremely proud to have launched dozens of our players onto the Mackenzie Tour & Korn Ferry Tour, and FOUR of our alumni out onto the PGA Tour since inception.  And most recently we are extremely proud to watch our graduate Nick Taylor go on to win his 2nd career PGA Tour event at this year’s AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, taking down Phil Mickelson in style!

VGT continues to provide junior, amateur and professional golfers the opportunity to learn how to win locally and to build their confidence to play at the highest level possible, whether it be claiming their Amateur Division Title or moving on to play on Worldwide Major Tours. The mission statement of VGT since day one is ‘Preparing Tomorrow’s Champions’ to compete (and win) on ANY TOUR!  Thanks for your support of our mission!
