Tee it up and go long

Grip it and rip it will be the order of the day during the lead up to the BC Golf Championship at Gallagher's Canyon.

Long ball hitters will get a chance to let it fly for a chance to win a pair of tickets anywhere WestJet flies.

The Bannister Long Drive Competition is set for June 12, following the official opening ceremonies.

Competitors can purchase three balls for $20, with proceeds going to the BC Cancer Foundation.

Jake Knapp took home last year's prize with a drive of 366 yards.

"We invite all Okanagan long ball hitters to enter. It’s a great way for local golfers to actively participate in the GolfBC Championship pre-tournament festivities," said tournament director Hugh Vassos.

The event is only open to amateur golfers.

The 72-hole tournament, part of the Mackenzie Tour - PGA Tour Canada, tees off the following morning.
