The GolfBC Championship is proud to feature several Special Events during tournament week. Some of our Special Events include our Pro-Am, “Wine Around the Okanagan” Player Pairings Party, and our fan-favourite “Long Drive Challenge” back by popular demand…


The exciting Long Drive Charity Challenge returns to the GolfBC Championship on Wednesday June 13th at Gallaghers Canyon. Golfers from throughout the Okanagan Valley are invited to test their driving skills in this fun competition that will feature a number of the Mackenzie Tour professionals who will set the mark for the amateurs to shoot for. Former two-time World Long Drive Champion Jamie Sadlowski will also make a speaking appearance at the event. Participants will be driving to win great Adidas golf prizes. Coinciding with the Challenge is the GolfBC Championship Tee-Off Party. Spectators are encouraged to come early for the 3:30 PM Challenge, to get the best seats on the course in the Gallaghers Canyon Clubhouse Lounge overlooking the #1 Tee Box. Prior to the Challenge is the Opening Ceremonies at 3:00 PM on the same Tee Box.

Cost to enter is only $25 for three shots. All proceeds go to the BC Cancer Foundation. The Challenge is free of charge to golf fans so participants are encouraged to bring their entourage to cheer them on.
