Heart Tournament

In light of the current Covid-19 pandemic cancelling this year’s actual golf tournament, we are very excited to share the upcoming Virtual Tournament to replace this year’s Heart Tournament.

While the actual Heart Tournament has been cancelled, we invite all Uplands members to participate in the 2020 Uplands Golf Club “VIRTUAL” Heart Tournament.

Dates:  June 1 – July 15, 2020
“Take A Shot” for your Heart!
We may not be able to golf the actual course in 2020, but we’re going to "take a shot" for Your Heart, virtually!

How it Works

With our goal of raising $100,000 we will need $5,000 to progress to from one hole to the next hole.  It is simple but we know it will take courage and generosity to get there.

  1. You "take a shot" by donating.
  2. We'll update our progress on the site course daily and send an email to members when we start a new hole.
  3. Take another shot! As many as you'd like!
  4. Together, we will “Take the shot” for Your Heart!

Every “Shot” Counts!

For those who registered for the Heart Tournament you will have the option to have your registration fee refunded or transfer it to a donation to the Victoria Hospital Foundation through our Virtual Golf Tournament.

Additional information will be forthcoming in the next couple of weeks, so watch this page!

Uplands Golf Club and its members have an impressive history of supporting community events and initiatives in Victoria.  While all of these endeavours are important, the signature event is the annual Uplands Golf Club Heart Tournament. 

This event began in 1978 and is the longest running charity golf tournament in British Columbia.  The Tournament supports the Cardiac Care Program at the Royal Jubilee Hospital and, to date, has raised more than $2.7 million for the purchase of vital equipment essential to patient care. This program benefits not just the residents of Victoria but also residents from across Vancouver Island.

Cardiac surgeons at the Jubilee have been unequivocal in their appreciation for the advanced technology that has been acquired as a result of our Tournament.  Their testimonials make it clear that access to such equipment has been important in enabling the Royal Jubilee Hospital's Cardiac Care Unit to maintain its status as a world class facility.

In the past, the Heart Tournament has comprised separate events for the Women, Men and Juniors. While the majority of the players, volunteers and donors are Uplands members, we are pleased that so many others from Victoria and up-Island join us in this important cause. The business community in Victoria continues to be a critical part of the Tournament’s success.  

Our members are proud to host and be directly involved in an initiative that has been so important to the delivery of outstanding cardiac care at the Royal Jubilee Hospital. The Heart Tournament is a key part of the Uplands fabric and it is an event in which every member takes great pride.
