The Player Development Trust Fund is the charitable arm of British Columbia Golf. The fund provides scholarships to boys and girls for post-secondary education and provides financial assistance to help young boys and girls attend British Columbia Golf sanctioned events.


From the Harry Roberts Memorial Golf Tournament, held annually since 2004 at the Nico-Wynd Golf Club in South Surrey, Graham the Roberts family and the members of Nico-Wynd have donated over $18,000.00 to the Player Development Trust Fund.

Mr. Harry Roberts emigrated from Liverpool, England. A passion for soccer gave way to a passion for golf as Harry grew older and he shared that passion with his 3 sons and in particular his youngest son Graham, until Harry passed away in 2003.

Harry believed that making golf accessible to young people enables them to grow in their self-discipline and promotes the development of lasting friendships.

In 2004 Graham started the Harry Roberts Memorial at Nico-Wynd Golf Club where Harry had been a member. Over the last several years the Roberts family have designated the Player Development Trust Fund as the charity of choice for the funds raised at the event.

Graham, on behalf of British Columbia Golf and the Player Development Trust Fund, is to be sincerely thanked for his tireless efforts to raise the so badly-needed funds to support the young boys and girls of British Columbia.

The funds raised are used for scholarships and travel expenses to help young golfers attend provincial golf events.
