The Tradition Golf Classic – Vancouver Island

BC Golf House Society

April 18, 2013, Nanaimo, BC (ISN) – In 2013 the Tradition Golf Classic – Vancouver Island, will be held at the Naniamo Golf Club. Last year was the third Island edition and it was a huge success, with a foursome from Nanaimo Golf Club taking home first place honours for the second year in a row.

This year’s event is scheduled for Monday August 12th. The field is limited to just 40 players so be sure to get your foursome together and enter soon because the event will surely sell out.

Schedule of Events:

  • Lunch at 12:00pm.
  • Tee off times begin at 1:00pm-2:00.
  • Cocktails 6:00pm.
  • Dinner 7:00pm.
  • Prizes at 8:00pm and other fundraising business.
  • Wrap up 9:00pm.


Teams of four, either entering as a team or allowing the Committee to put players together, play a gross par points format with each player playing their own ball all the way around. Par points are awarded based on the gross score of the player with a double bogey or less counting points. At the end of the round the team total handicap is added to the points scored to form the team score. Ties are broken by retrogression.

What is Included?

Each player’s entry fee is $200 and includes the following:

  • Lunch
  • Tee gifts
  • 18 holes of great golf with golf cars
  • Dinner
  • Prizes

Following dinner there will be a live and silent auction along with other features.
