BCxA Scholarship Foundation Annual Memorial Golf Tournament


The Annual Michael R. Chelednik Memorial Golf Tournament in support of the BCxA Scholarship Foundation will take place in conjunction with NCBC, at the beautiful Stonebridge Golf Club. Named after the rustic red rock bridges that help define the course, Stonebridge Golf Club features 27 holes of golf, divided into three challenging nines -- each measuring nearly 3,600 yards from the professional tees. It is one of the longest and most water-laden courses in Utah. Test your skills on this amazing course while helping to build the Foundation’s scholarship funds to support the next generation of commissioning providers.

The tournament format is a traditional scramble with shotgun start at 8:00 AM. Along with the usual prizes for Lowest Team Score, Highest Team Score, KP (Men’s and Women’s) and Longest Drive (Men’s and Women’s), there will be some creative and fun wrinkles on advancing the ball in certain situations, and a one-time opportunity to get creative with scorekeeping.

The emphasis will be on FUN in supporting the purpose of the tournament – raising money for the BCxA Scholarship Foundation. Please join us for a lively event in a magnificent setting for this worthwhile cause. A light breakfast and lunch are included with the cost of golf and of course your contribution to the scholarship fund – all for $125.
