Newmont Invitational Golf Tournament

Changing lives through the power of sport

The Newmont Invitational Golf Tournament is back and better than ever! 

Throughout its history, the Newmont Invitational has been known for its premium golf experience and its power to make a difference for Special Olympics BC’s inspiring athletes and empowering programs. Too often, people with intellectual disabilities are forgotten and left behind by our society, and the pandemic has intensified their isolation. The 2021 Newmont Invitational will be your opportunity to make a critical difference in the lives of athletes who rely on Special Olympics for sport, health, skill building, and most of all, friendships. 

While the 2020 tournament had to be cancelled due to the pandemic, the 2021 event will be bigger and better than ever before.

About the Newmont Invitational 

On June 17, the 2021 Newmont Invitational will take place in person at its traditional home at Northview Golf & Country Club and this year, for the first time, the tournament will also run simultaneously at multiple top-tier golf courses in the Lower Mainland, Sea to Sky, Vancouver Island, and the Okanagan.    

Golfers will be treated to a top-quality experience at all locations, with the finest in food, tee gifts, and unforgettable experiences with Special Olympics athletes. Participants will stay connected and competitive through an app tracking the performances at the satellite sites.   

After the day of play and on-course lunch, an evening virtual wrap party will bring together the teams to award prizes, check out the live and silent auctions, and learn how they are changing lives by supporting Special Olympics BC’s year-round sport, youth, and health programs for people with intellectual disabilities.   

Every location will operate in accordance with provincial health requirements. Sponsors will have opportunities to activate on all courses and through the virtual experiences.
