Chilliwack Golf and Country Club instructor Brad Clapp tees off on the PGA Tour Canada this summer.

Raising cash for PGA dream

A few wins will make things a lot cheaper, but Brad Clapp faces expenses as he heads out on the PGA Tour Canada.

Brad Clapp will golf this year on the PGA Tour Canada, which is great news for the Chilliwack Golf and Country Club instructor.

The bad news is, it costs money.

The tour will take Clapp across the country for 12 tournaments, and hopefully he’ll get into the money at a few of those stops.

Until he does, airfare and meals don’t come free.

June 14 the CG&CC will host the Brad Clapp Scramble to raise money.

For $50, up to 36 teams will be able to sign up for nine holes, a hamburger, beer and a shot at prizes.

A shotgun start will get them off at 5 p.m., playing the CG&CC’s front nine.

Prizes will be awarded for the lowest score, best-themed team and most honest (although, how would you know?).

Those who can’t fit in the golf can ante up $25 for a burger and beer, and bid on live and silent auctions starting at 7 p.m.

The evening includes a 50/50 draw and $5 drink specials, with $1 from every drink sold supporting Clapp.

Tickets can be purchased at the CG&CC pro shop (41894 Yale Road West), or phone 604-823-6521.
