ALS Golfathon tees off June 11

Arbutus Ridge pros Andrew Hajer and Jayme Young will hit the links on Thursday, June 11.

The Arbutus Ridge and Cowichan golf clubs are among more than 30 across the province participating in the 15th annual PGA of BC Golfathon for ALS this month.

During the month of June, golf professionals will golf from sunrise to sunset to support those living with ALS, golfing as many holes as possible to raise funds for the ALS Society of BC. Proceeds will provide support services to ALS patients and their families, friends and caregivers.

Arbutus Ridge pros Andrew Hajer and Jayme Young will hit the links on Thursday, June 11. Norm Jackson and G.P. Denomme will take their turn at Cowichan later in the month. COVID-19 precautions will be taken.
