The Agur Lake Camp Society and Summerland Timber Mart have partnered for the 11th annual Agur Lake Camp Charity Golf Tournament, with additional sponsors providing prizes for holes-in-one.

All of the proceeds from the tournament go towards operating B.C.’s only barrier-free wilderness campground.

This year, sinking a hole-in-one at tournament comes with additional rewards. Golfers can win one of two brand new cars, or one of two $10,000 cash prizes if they nail their shot. They won’t be easy to get, the tournament is promising additional challenges on the course that will “redefine the meaning of a handicap.”

Penticton Toyota and Huber Bannister Chevrolet are sponsoring the tournament and providing the vehicles. Johnston Meier Insurance and the Chamberlain Property Group are providing the cash prizes.

Along with a day of golf and a chance for big prizes, tickets go to support a unique facility.

The camp offers people of all ages, and those with various disabilities and their families or caregivers a safe and calm oasis. It allows families the unique opportunity for rest, rejuvenation and to create memorable connections with one another in nature.
