VANCOUVER (January 15, 2013)—The First Tee of Greater Vancouver YMCA and the Vancouver Golf Tour are pleased to announce an exciting partnership to grow the game of golf in 2013!

Through this partnership, Vancouver Golf Tour (VGT) will take the role of operations specialists for the 3rd ANNUAL FIRST TEE $1MILLION HOLE-IN-ONE CHALLENGE, working along with The First Tee, YMCA and Vancouver Golf Tour to make the charities’ main fundraising campaign.  The $1Million Challenge is slated for June 27th, 2013 at Langara Golf Course, one of Vancouver Parks’ Premier Golf Courses. 

“The event promises to be one of Vancouver’s most exciting Charity golf events of the year, not only offering amateur golfers multiple hole-in-one prizes throughout the day, but the chance to play with one of BC’s Top Professional Golfers, Pro-am style” stated VGT Commissioner Fraser Mulholland.  “Every hole is turned into a par 3 length bulls–eye shoot out for cash valued $10,000 – $50,000 or KP prize and the ladies and men’s teams with the best scores of the day shoot out for a chance to win $1,000,000!”
