Indigenous Golf Championship (Nk’Mip Canyon Desert Golf Course)
May 27 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
For the first time ever, B.C. golfers who identify as Inuit, Metis or First Nation will compete against each other at the inaugural Indigenous Golf Championship. Scheduled for the May 26 weekend, the tournament will take place at the Osoyoos Indian Band-owned Nk’Mip Canyon Desert Golf Course. A total of 128 men, women and youth will compete in an event that promises to be competitive and fun.
The tournament will begin with an official practice round on May 26 before the 36-hole event kicks off on the Saturday. Champions will be crowned in men and women’s gross, men and women’s and a youth (under 19) division. The youth division will serve as final qualifying event for golfers who are vying to represent B.C. at the 2023 North American Indigenous Games set in Halifax, Nova Scotia in July.
The Ontario and B.C. Indigenous Golf Championship events will each qualify golfers to compete in a national event to take place in late 2023 at Bear Mountain Resort in Langford. Golfers can register starting March 1 and ending April 28. For more information, visit britishcolumbiagolf.org.
