Golfers get ready, Radiums Ram into Summer Golf Tournament is only a couple of weeks away.

The tournament is in support of Tourism Radium and the Radium Chamber of Commerce. The event is on June 15th at the Radium Course and entry costs $99, including a round of golf at one of B.C.s most popular courses, a barbecue steak dinner at the course and the chance to win prizes from local business. Funds raised will go towards Radiums various marketing initiatives.

Last year, we had 72 players and we raised just under $6,000, Kara Cassidy, Tourism Radiums marketing administrator said. It was a great tournament.

While tournament prizes have not been finalized yet, last years major prizes included a Columbia Valley Golf Trail passport, a two night stay at Big Horn Meadows Resort and Calgary Stampeders tickets.

Plus everyone who registers will get a swag bag, Ms. Cassidy said. Tournament play will be in scramble format, with an emphasis on participants having a great time. Golfers will have access to food and beverage stations on the course, operated by Horsethief Pub, La Cabina Ristorante and Leo Burrito.

Our goal this year is to have 100 participants and we would like to raise between $8,000 and $10,000 in proceeds, tournament chair Michael Anderson said.
