UBC Medical Alumni & Friends Golf Tournament

UBC medical students are the future of healthcare. They are society’s change-makers who are improving on our successes and contributing innovations to the way we practice medicine.

As leaders in the medical community, it is our responsibility to
support their success. 

One way to help us do that is by sponsoring the UBC Medical Alumni Association annual golf tournament and community-building event.

You don’t need to be a golfer, or a UBC alumnus, to support students.

Whether you play in the tournament or rally your team around colleagues and students who do, the UBC Medical Alumni & Friends Golf Tournament is the perfect team-building opportunity for you to chip-in and make a difference. All funds raised through this fun day of golf will directly benefit student activities and the UBC Medical Student & Alumni Centres (MSACs) across the province.

MSACs are more than just buildings. They are:

  • a legacy to the cooperation of students, alumni, university, hospital, province, and many individuals
  • a place for health and wellness activities
  • for students to thrive in their studies and careers

How can I make a difference in the lives of students? Chip-in!

Here is a recap of our UBC Medical Alumni & Friends Golf Tournament in previous years:

On June 19, 2019, the UBC Medical Alumni Association hosted over 120 golfers and guests at the University Golf Club for the 42nd anniversary of the UBC Medical Alumni & Friends Golf Tournament. This annual tradition is a meaningful opportunity for UBC medical alumni, students, residents, friends, and faculty to connect with each other, foster UBC and alumni pride, and encourage a culture of philanthropic support. The tournament’s success is largely attributed to the leadership, support, and influence of a volunteer committee comprised of alumni, community members, and students, in collaboration with the Faculty of Medicine Alumni Engagement Office.

Throughout the day, our players had the opportunity to win exciting on-course activity prizes from our generous sponsors, such as 

  • pendant from Tiffany's
  • Bose Soundsport Free wireless headphones
  • Garmin Golf GPS Watch
  • $10,000 of wine!

This year's auction prizes included:

  • travel experiences
  • seeing the Toronto Blue Jays in Seattle
  • 40-year old bottles of port wine

This year’s tournament had a record number of medical student and resident participation and raised over $21,000 through sponsorship, prize donations, and auctions. All proceeds from the tournament go toward supporting the activities and spaces of current UBC MD undergraduate students throughout British Columbia. The UBC Medical Alumni & Friends Golf Tournament has raised over $230,000 to date.

Save the date for next year's tournament on June 17, 2020! Registration will open in early 2020.

Vancouver brought out its best, sunny weather for our 41st UBC Medical Alumni & Friends Golf Tournament on June 20th, 2018 at the University Golf Club. Medical alumni and students, friends, colleagues, and sponsors were brought together for this annual tradition of golfing and connecting with one another. Understanding that with busy schedules, a variety of areas of specialty, and geographic distances, connecting with each other in this way is a rare occurrence and therefore creates a wonderful atmosphere and collegiality.

After enjoying an excellent round of golf, our players and guests indulged in good food, maybe won a prize (or a few!), and participated in our wine/silent/live auctions and raffle ticket sales. The proceeds from the Golf Tournament go toward supporting the activities of our current medical students here in Vancouver and at our distributed medical program sites in Prince George, Victoria and Kelowna.

We are truly grateful to everyone that attended and supported our UBC Medical Alumni & Friends Golf Tournament; their presence made this tournament a wonderful success and we appreciate and value their participation.
