The 8th Annual First Tee Million Dollar Pro-Am Challenge Coming To Richmond CC

The 8th annual First Tee Million Dollar Pro-Am Challenge is all about raising funds to ensure vulnerable kids and youth can have the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of the game of golf.

The First Tee of the YMCA of Greater Vancouver enables kids ages 6-17 to learn how to set goals and build character while learning fundamental golf skills. Through the game of golf, kids also learn essential life skills and positive values have a whole lot of fun. Let’s face it—kids learn best when they’re having fun!

This exciting shotgun tournament will offer amateur players an intimate experience to compete in an 18 hole team scramble with one of Canada’s premier golf professionals. Held at the exclusive Richmond Country Club, eight lucky participants will be randomly drawn and will have an opportunity to sink a hole-in-one shot to win $1,000,000.

Pros will be available to answer any golf-related questions and provide some swing advice. Participants receive a golf cart for their round, lunch, access to on-course hospitality tents and a gala reception dinner with silent and live auctions.

Date: Wednesday, May 23
Location: Richmond Country Club at 9100 Steveston Highway
Time: 1:00pm shotgun start
