Sun Peaks, BC - Mothers and daughters, fathers and sons and many other combinations of young and old(er!) golfers will take to the greens to raise funds for the community of Sun Peaks during Nancy Greene’s Little Big Golf Challenge (September 8).
In this family friendly golf tournament alternate shot twosomes will compete in two categories. In the Juniors category one player must be under the age of 16 and in the Masters category both players must be over the age of 16. Winners will be determined in various categories and there will be fun contests on each hole. Teams can register for $65 per twosome, with proceeds going to the Sun Peaks Education Society and the Sun Peaks Health Association.
Registration includes nine holes of golf, entry into the driving range and golf course contests and a complimentary pasta and salad buffet at Masa’s Bar + Grill. Carts are available for an additional $25 and must be reserved in advance.
The fundraiser is the perfect excuse to get in another round before B.C.’s highest elevation course closes for the season on September 30. The Sun Peaks Golf Course has experienced a successful summer with an increase in golf rounds from the previous year. Visiting celebrity Kevin Costner was even spotted hitting a few balls on the driving range before his concert on July 7.
Golfers staying at Sun Peaks can take advantage of ‘Kids Golf Free’. Junior golfers (16 and under) play for free when accompanied by a paying adult. This offer is valid Monday to Thursday after 10:00am.
To register contact Guest Services at 250-578-5474 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
