The GolfBC Championship: Postponed
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 GolfBC Championship has been postponed. Exact date is yet to be determined, but will be announced as more information becomes available. In the meantime, we fondly remember last year's event, and congratulate Jake Knapp on being our 2019 champion! Over its first four years, the GolfBC Championship has made a significant positive charitable impact in the Kelowna area with $600,000 raised for charity: $500,000 of which has been awarded to the event's designated charity, the BC Cancer Foundation, $50,000 supported the Canadian Red Cross for Kelowna flood relief in 2017, and after a community nomination and vote, $50,000 was donated to the Central Okanagan Food Bank.
