This month there are a pair of golf tournaments designed to help give back to the community.

Entry fee includes transportation to Bowen, 18 holes of golf, prizes, an après party at the Queens' Cross and more.

Fourth annual 2011 North Shore Mayors' Golf Tournament: On Friday, May 27, Seymour Golf and Country Club will once again host the 4th annual North Shore Mayors' Golf Tournament.
Since its inception in 2008, the tournament has raised over $300,000 to benefit North Shore community organizations.
This year's designated causes are a pair of bus services for seniors: the Go Bus in North Vancouver and West Vancouver's Senior's Shuttle. They will share $50,000 with the hope that the funds will inspire funds from other sources as well.
This year's tourney hopes to raise over $100,000, the balance of which will be shared by the North Shore Community Foundation and the West Vancouver Foundation.
