Registration for the third VIU Athletics Golf Tournament is now open. The annual event is a fundraiser for players and coaches of the Athletic department and raises money towards VIU scholarships.
This year’s tournament will take place Thursday, Sept. 20 at Fairwinds Golf Club and features a shotgun start, 18-hole scramble. Participants of all skills are welcome and the tournament will be followed by dinner and a live and silent auction in the clubhouse.
VIU players, coaches, and staff will be on hand to help run the event and greet participants on the golf course. This year, M’s athletes will also act as caddies for the golfers.
“Imagine having someone carry your clubs, replace divots, rake traps and maybe even line up a putt for you,” tournament organizers entice.
The tournament, which fundraised over $20 thousand last year, is a great way to support VIU athletics and meet some of the Mariners players and staff. For more information please call 250-740-6413.
