Bear/Cub golf event Sunday at Bear Mountain

Tournament inspired by staffer's memories of father-son event

Bear Mountain Golf Resort is hosting its inaugural Bear & Cub classic this Sunday (Sept. 28), a friendly tournament that pairs adult and junior players for 18 holes.

The club’s sales manager, Chris Currie, modelled the event after a father-son tournament he used to enjoy playing with his dad in P.E.I.

“We decided to not limit it to family so more people can play,” he said.

Teams are composed of an adult player and a junior under 19. The $129 entry fee for each team covers 18 holes of golf on the valley course, a shared power cart, a first tee gift, buffet lunch and, Currie emphasizes, a team photo for everyone involved.

“My father passed this last year due to ALS, and I have all these photos of me and him playing the event (in P.E.I.),” he said. “So I made sure that a photo was included for this event. It’s such a keepsake.”

The inaugural tournament is a “trial run,” Currie said. If successful, it will be carried over to future years and likely will introduce a charity component.

The tournament starts at 9 a.m. on Sunday. The registration deadline is Wednesday (Sept. 24), but Currie suggests anyone who misses that deadline may still call for availability at 250-744-2327.
