GolfBC Group Announces GBC Family Golf Day

15th May, 2008
The GolfBC Group is pleased to introduce for 2008 ‘GBC Family Golf Day’ in June. GolfBC continues to lead the Canadian Golf Industry in player development with programs such as ‘GolfBC Free Lesson Month’, ‘Kids Play Free at GolfBC’, ‘Beginner Friendly Certification’ and ‘Take-a-kid to the Course Week’ (in partnership with the NGCOA).

‘GBC Family Golf Day’ is a great way to introduce kids and beginner golfers to the game, in a fun and relaxed environment. “GBC Family Golf Day” will be offered by all GolfBC courses in British Columbia during the month of June, where kids and accompanying adults are invited to partake in fun clinics and golf competitions followed by a round of golf or just a few practice holes. Refreshments will be provided for all participants and each kid will receive a tee gift. For more information, prices and dates, visit www.gbcgolfacademy.com.

Participating courses are Nicklaus North, Furry Creek, Mayfair Lakes, The Okanagan Golf Club (The Bear and The Quail), Gallagher’s Canyon (The Pinnacle), Arbutus Ridge, and Olympic View.

“Whether your goal is to have more fun or to lower your scores, the GBC Golf Academies have a variety of programs for players of all abilities. ‘GBC Family Golf Day’ is an exciting addition to our ‘Grow the Game’ initiatives this year, as we are providing an opportunity for kids and families to come experience the game in a relaxed setting”, said Rita Rennie, Marketing Manager at GolfBC. "We are excited to have Pepsi on board this year as co-sponsor of ‘GBC Family Golf Day’ and are looking forward to a great event geared towards the whole family, of all abilities”, said Andy Hedley, Vice President of Operations, GolfBC British Columbia.
