The UBC Medical Alumni & Friends Golf Tournament has supported the wellbeing of UBC’s medical students for over 40 years, generating essential funding for programs, services, and awards to help students thrive in their studies, careers, and lives.
In response to the ongoing provincial health order restrictions around social gatherings and events due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Golf Tournament Organizing Committee has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 UBC Medical Alumni & Friends Golf Tournament. The health, safety, and well-being of our players, sponsors, donors, and partners is our primary concern, and we made this decision with them in mind. Further information on COVID-19 and UBC’s response is available at https://covid19.ubc.ca/.
While in person social gatherings and events are delayed, the UBC Medical Alumni Association (MAA) continues to support UBC medical alumni and students, such as the November 2020 Trivia Night, MD Shingle Program, and Student Leadership Award. We hope that you will join us in supporting the work of the UBC MAA by becoming a UBC MAA member here.
Thank you for your unwavering support and we look forward to bringing this signature event to our medical community in the future. We wish you and your loved ones all the best at this time and hope to see you soon.

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.

Thank you to our 2019 Sponsors:
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.
Thank you to our 2018 Sponsors:
