The 21st annual Thompson Okanagan Tourism Association Golf Tournament will be held Sept. 6 at the Summerland Golf and Country Club.

The yearly event is an opportunity for tourism stakeholders from throughout the region to get together for a day of golf, networking and fun with colleagues and friends.

Last year 120 people took part in the tournament held at the Vernon Golf and Country Club.

Each year up to 120 golfers, representing all types of resorts, hotels, media companies, ski areas and other tourism-related businesses from across the Thompson Okanagan region, enjoy the ‘Texas scramble’ format tournament.

The 2012 tournament in Summerland will kick off with registration starting at 11 a.m. and a shotgun start to the golf at 1 p.m.

Participants will enjoy a number of fun holes and special activities on the course during the 18-hole tournament, as well as cocktails and a full dinner banquet, complete with prizes for everyone.

In addition to a major Hole-in-One prize, a Putting Contest, and Longest Drive and Clostest-to-the-Hole competitions, a number of businesses and destinations sponsor individual holes, with some offering samples of food and refreshments and others presenting fun activities at the hole.

This year’s accommodation sponsor will be the Summerland Waterfront Resort.


Meaghan Racine, TOTA’s Stakeholder Sales Specialist, is welcoming interest from potential sponsors for the various tournament activities, at levels of $250 (for events like Longest Drive and Closest to the Pin), $500 (for sponsorships of the golf carts, the Putting Contest, and individual holes), and $1,000 (for the Banquet Dinner or the Hole-in-One contest).
