20,000 golfers are invited to play premier courses in the Kootenay Rockies over the 2010 golf season, with 400 qualifiers, including 100 prequalified Pros, being invited to play for a $1,000,000 first prize in September 2010.

All participants will have the opportunity to play world-class mountain golf courses, in an outstanding environment, enjoying the accommodation, the welcome of the region, as well as the excitement of playing for the big prize. The two official tournament courses, Shadow Mountain and St Eugene, are considered the most spectacular courses in the Canadian Rockies.

Those interested in participating are invited to contact their local club Pro, or to log onto www.mountainsofgold.com to register. As well as the $1,000,000 final prize, qualifying club Pros will also be invited to play in a supplementary tournament for an additional prize pot of $175,000.

"This is a very exciting opportunity for club pros, for amateurs and for us," says Fred Mehl of tournament organizer, Wildhorse Event Management, "our courses are truly world class, as is the tournament. Golf should be challenging. It should also be rewarding, and this event promises exceptional rewards in every sense." Everyone who plays will have the opportunity to win, and spots are limited so golfers are encouraged to book early. If you are not in it, you can't win it!

Amateur golfers interested in the event can only enter through a participating golf pro, or by registering their interest on www.mountainsofgold.com.

The Mountains of Gold Golf tournament is a joint initiative between golf courses, accommodators and other service providers in the Kootenay Rockies region of British Columbia, and is being managed by Wildhorse Event Management. A charitable legacy is being established to support youth in the region.
