UBCO Heat hosts first Canada West golf championship

UBCO makes golf history

It's a historic weekend for Canada West and UBC Okanagan.

The UBCO Heat will host the first ever Canada West golf championship Saturday and Sunday at the Okanagan Golf Club's Bear course.

Golf was approved as a conference sport during the Canada West annual meetings last year at UBCO.

“It’s hard to think of Kelowna and the Okanagan and not think of golf,” said Tom Huisman, UBC Okanagan’s director of athletics and recreation.

“It just seemed like a natural fit for us because of the region that we’re in, and we have an incredible partner for our program in the Okanagan Golf Club."

Men and women from Victoria, UBC, Fraser Valley, Alberta, Calgary, Lethbridge, Manitoba and UBCO will tee up for 36-holes of stroke play.

Winners will qualify for the 2020 Golf Canada Canadian University/College Championships in Quebec next May.
