A green fee of $99 gets participants a catered brunch before tee off, 18 holes of golf, an afternoon snack and dinner following the round.

Registration and brunch takes place from 10 a.m. to noon and golf commences at 1 p.m. witha  shotgun format

The day includes a  silent auction, raffle prizes, entertainment, and more. Part of the proceeds go to the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital.
