Golf for Life tees off at 12:30pm.

Join us for the 26th Anniversary of Golf for Life on September 6th! The proceeds are supporting the Hospital Foundation’s $1.5 million campaign to reduce colonoscopy wait times at NRGH.

More than $1 million has been raised for medical equipment at Nanaimo Regional General Hospital (NRGH) since the tournament’s inception. From purchasing large pieces of equipment to contributing to the Hospital Foundation’s recent $1.8 million commitment to expand the Cardiac Departments at NRGH and Oceanside Health Centre in Parksville, Golf for Life makes a positive and lasting impact on patient care in our community.

This year, funds raised will go towards our $1.5 million campaign for a new procedural suite for the Endoscopy Department at NRGH. This project is urgently needed as procedures such as colonoscopies are used to diagnose serious illnesses including Crohn’s Disease, Ulcerative Colitis, Diverticulitis and Colon Cancer. One in every six of us will be diagnosed with Colon Cancer in our lifetime. There are over 3,500 patients currently waiting up to 12 months for a colonoscopy. With the new suite, up to 6,750 procedures will be performed per year, an increase of 35%. Colonoscopies make up 80% of all procedures and are potentially lifesaving, making this project vital.

Golf for Life is an opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals who see the need to raise both funds and awareness to ensure our Oceanside communities have access to the best healthcare possible close to home. Among our golfers are entrepreneurs, medical professionals, business executives and community leaders.

Fairwinds Golf Club has always been our host course and we are delighted that we will be playing there once again. Their generous support has helped ensure the longevity and success of our event in addition to providing a spectacular backdrop and top notch hospitality.

This year we have a Scottish theme and prizes for Best Dressed Team, Female Golfer and Male Golfer will be awarded so wear your favourite tartan in honour of the birthplace of modern day golf!
