The BCPMA hosts two popular golf tournaments annually – in June and September.
The tournaments provide sponsors with timely opportunities to promote their brand, services and products. The golf courses – from tee boxes to putting greens – have become a buffet feast. Producers, growers, and importers have seized the chance to demo their tasty treats to buyers, distributors, retailers and wholesalers.
The 144 golfers attending the tournaments enjoy meeting old friends, making new ones, networking with representatives of the BC produce industry, playing a round at the legendary Northview or the lush Hazelmere Golf & Country Clubs, and chowing down on an extravagant dinner; plus there are generous door prizes. Everyone always goes home happy and often sunburned (luckily for us – it rarely rains on our tournaments!). And for those members or guests who want to participate but are non-golfers, tickets for the dinner-only are available. Also, we’re always looking for cheerful volunteers to assist in organizing and running the event.
Underscoring the fun and social aspects of the golf tournaments is the commitment by the BCPMA to give back to the community. BC charities such as Mix it Up Program, BC Children’s Hospital – have been the recipients of hundreds of thousands of dollars raised over the decades by our magnanimous golfers, sponsors and attendees.
The BCPMA invites you to join in the fun at our Spring and Fall golf tournaments. But here’s a tip – book early! These seasonal occasions are immensely popular. Industry members from across BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba as well as Washington, Oregon and California in the USA travel to the Lower Mainland to participate these prominent events.
We hope to see you soon at Tsawwassen springs!
