Golfing for Rene

There is just a few days left to grab your tickets to the inaugural Rene Bourgault Legacy Golf Tournament.

The golf tournament was initially created by Bourgault himself as a benefit for the Kelowna Jaycees, but after his tragic death last year, the Jaycees took it on themselves to honour him.

Bourgault's life was cut short in a tragic rafting accident in August of 2015, just 27 days before he was set to marry the love of his life.

Bourgault is described as a driven and successful entrepreneur who was passionate about giving back to the community.

When Bourgault started in business, he struggled to secure financing, and was outspoken about creating opportunities for young entrepreneurs.

To carry that forward, the Jaycees are using this event to raise funds to support motivated young people in the community start on their own paths of entrepreneurship and business.

The event features a nine-hole Texas scramble golf tournament, a roast beef dinner, a whole bunch of side games, beverages, food and much more. 

The July 15 tournament at Bear Course at the Okanagan Golf Club, presented by SYNLawn, is open to all golfers, from beginners to pros. 

You can sign up as a group, or as an individual and we’ll find a group for you.
