For more than 25 years our Society has been hosting an Annual Ukrainian Community Golf Tournament for it’s members and friends. The tournament is for all golfers, young and somewhat old, regardless of ability. The emphasis is on everyone having a good time.
The tournament is a Texas Scramble format, enabling all players of varying skills to play and enjoy the game.
Refreshments and a snack will be served after the ninth hole. There will be a dinner at the Ivan Franko Centre after we finish golfing where prizes will be distributed. We do appreciate donations so that we can continue to offer prizes to all players.
Our next Golf Tournament takes place on Sunday, September 16, 2018 with first tee at 11am. More details will follow soon.

Recap: Annual Ukrainian Golf Tournament on Sunday, September 17, 2017
A little bit of rain never hurt anyone, especially our hardy golfers as they played the Country Meadows Golf Course on Sunday, September 17th. In the inclement weather, only three groups shot under par, but we had an eagle on the Par 4 ninth hole thanks to two superb shots by Bill Humenny. The team of George Daschko, Ingus Silgailus, Amanda Hopkins, and Roman Herchak shot -4 to finish first in the tournament. The teams of Myron Kynach, Kevin McGilligan, Les Schweitzer, and Ian Reid (-3) and Sean Dashko, Kenton Boldt, Mitch Kean, and Nick Kutin were close behind. The longest drives of the day were by Lesia Dawydiak and Bruce Cameron and the balls shot closest to the pin were by Lesia Dawydiak and Aaron Steitzer.
After the game, players came to our Centre for a banquet, distribution of prizes, and refreshments served by Tanya Zukewich who also registered the players prior to tee-off. Thanks to the generosity of private donors, individual golfers and our Society, all golfers were able to receive prizes after the meal. The prizes included two quality golf bags, a gift basket, B.C. Lions tickets, a wireless bluetooth speaker, a private golf lesson, and many gift certificates. The donors included Savage Creek Driving Range, Richmond Driving Range, Country Meadows Golf Course, Jennifer Wyatt, Amron Meats, Vancity, Shaw Communications, C&D Logistics, ECCO Supplies, C & D Logistics, Camfill Farr, and Envirotech. Sean and George Daschko and George Brandak were able to collect prizes from our generous donors.
We are grateful to our kitchen staff who spent much time and effort to prepare a wonderful meal. The Country Meadows Golf Course hosted in a courteous and efficient manner. Kudos to all our golfers, many who participated in the tournament in the last century and those who participated in their first tournament. We hope you will continue to support our tournament and our Society.
