Spaces still open for Verge for Youth tournament

Have you ever wondered just what it would be like to golf with a legend?

Have you ever wondered just what it would be like to golf with a legend?

The Verge For Youth golf tournament on Sunday, July 31 is offering you that opportunity. Among the silent auction items is a game of golf for you and two buddies with Lanny MacDonald at the Eagle Bay Golf Course, followed by dinner with Lanny at The Tamarack Brewery restaurant in Big Fork, Montana. To top the day off, Lanny’s hall of fame hockey stick will be yours!

The tournament at The Ridge at Copper Point has something for everyone: live auction, silent auction, raffles, draws and fun golf for everyone.  Then there is the meal and prizes to follow.

Entry fees are $99 each and spaces are filling. Visit to obtain a registration form or contact Copper Point Golf Course at 250-341-3392 to register.

All proceeds of this annual tournament go to assist youth and families in need within the Columbia Valley. Last year close to $60,000 was raised and  distributed from Golden to Cranbrook.

For a good time and the chance to support this special charity, mark your calendar and get registered. If you don’t golf, grab a meal ticket and come for fun and food.
