Maui Jim Canada Elevating BC Women's Golf In 2018

British Columbia Golf along with the Vancouver Golf Tour welcomes MAUI JIM CANADA as a Major Partner in developing BC Women’s Golf. Through the partnership British Columbia Golf has with the VGT, Maui Jim Canada has elevated their sponsorship to include a Presenting Sponsorship Role in all 7 of British Columbia Golf’s Women’s Championships in 2018.

The BC Golf Women's Championship events begin June 18th with the Women's Senior, Super-Senior and Net-Stableford Championship and conclude with the Juvenile Girls Championship August 23rd. At the same time the VGT will launch the MAUI JIM WOMEN’S SERIES.

"British Columbia Golf is excited to be partnering with Maui Jim Canada and the Vancouver Golf Tour in launching a Women’s Series," said BC Golf CEO Kris Jonasson. "We have long recognized competitive opportunities for women are lacking and the Women’s Series is a good start to correcting this imbalance. We promote golf as an ideal activity for a healthy, active lifestyle. Protection of the eyes from the harmful effects of UV is a must and Maui Jim Canada is an ideal sponsor to help us spread that message to golfers."

Added VGT Commissioner Fraser Mulholland, "We are extremely proud to have a leading worldwide brand in Maui Jim Canada sunglasses elevate their role in golf and help us launch these Women’s Golf Initiatives in BC this year. Maui Jim Canada is empowering us to launch a first of its kind Women’s Series on the VGT for both Amateurs and Professionals to compete in."

Maui Jim Canada Managing director Jeff Speiran states that, "This is a perfect partnership for Maui Jim Canada. We believe that both pros and amateurs alike deserve to not only give their eyes the best protection from the sun’s UV rays but allow them to enjoy the true colours and beauty of the course they are playing. And why not gain just a bit of an edge when striking the ball or reading that 20-foot putt?”
