Not one golfer has claimed the prize in the last 10 years.

$100,000 up for grabs

Heartbeats will be racing and palms will be sweaty next month when over a hundred golfers take their shot.

Heartbeats will be racing and palms will be sweaty next month when over a hundred golfers take their shot at the Greywolf Golf Course $100,000 Cliffhanger Shootout.

“I like hanging out on hole six and watching the excitement,” said Greywolf marketing consultant Scott Morgan. “People of course get pretty nervous before their shot… I like the adrenaline of shooting for $100,000, it’s pretty neat.”

To enter, golfers simply have to book a tee time for the day, and when they get to hole number six they’ll have an opportunity to win $100,000, provided of course they can make a hole-in-one. The event is now entering its 11th year, and while no one has won yet, Morgan said he’s seen a number of close calls.

“It’s a pretty exciting thing if it’s getting close to the hole,” Morgan said. “We’d love someone to win, but it hasn’t happened yet.”

The event is a partnership between Greywolf Golf Course and the Panorama Foundation, and all proceeds will be donated to Access in the Community for Equality (ACE). ACE is a local organization that strives to create a universally accessible and barrier-free community, and funds from this event will be used to purchase a Mobi-Chair, which is a amphibious beach wheelchair that will allow wheelchair users to be able to traverse the beach and even the water. Entry for the event is $25 plus greens fees, and the Panorama Foundation will match every entry with $25 of their own.

“We haven’t had anyone win the big prize in the 10 previous years we’ve hosted this event, so we figure we’re due to have someone win the hundred grand” said Steve Sims, Greywolf’s Head Professional in a media release. “We’re looking forward to another fun day for everyone and we’re excited to help out such a great cause.”

There will also be food stations and other prizes scattered throughout the golf course, and you can book a tee time for the event right up until the day by calling 1-888-473-9965. Past organizations to benefit from the event include the Panorama Fire Department, the Columbia Valley Arts Centre and Cops for Kids.
