Of course, this includes the 4th Annual BC Law Enforcement Memorial Golf Tournament which began in 2014 as a Texas Scramble (4-person best ball); inter-agency competition. Teams entering this tournament consist of peace officers representing their respective law enforcement agencies.

For many years now there has been a pre-existing Memorial golf tournament in Victoria: the “SOUTHERN VANCOUVER ISLAND POLICE MEMORIAL GOLF TOURNAMENT.” The organizers of this tournament have graciously invited us to partner with them and include the BC Law Enforcement Memorial Golf Tournament as a separate bracket within their tournament.
