Thurs. September 8th, 9:30am shotgun start
Bellingham Golf & Country Club
Designed to connect business and community, the Birch Golf Classic held each September has donated to non-profit organizations helping transition our most vulnerable off the streets and onto better pathways. The BGC is hopeful to donate $300k this year, $100k going to each of the 2021 to 2023 recipient organizations: Businesses Ending Slavery & Trafficking (B.E.S.T), Real Escape from the Sex Trade (R.E.S.T) and The Whatcom Dream) and to shine a light on the incredible work they are doing along the I-5 corridor.
Also highlighting Community Trailblazers in business, law enforcement, social services, professional athletes, education and local celebrities, the tournament is a diverse melting pot of community and business joining together to enjoy the day together and get some amazing work done.
We are excited to roll-out the 2022 BGC, guaranteed to be a great sold-out event. We will continue to hold to just 30 golf teams (Click here to sign up your team), allowing tournament play to be completed in just under 5 hours. Teams will roll directly into the 19th Hole Post Tournament: Drink, dinner, results & the Longest Drive Competition.
What your Team raises in funds is how you are supporting the organizations and also puts you in selection position for Community Trailblazer + Team Prize. The Community Trailblazers are the 5th golfer for the team, all with links to the NW community.
Team Prizes are unique and/or difficult to obtain items and experiences including: Private jet to exclusive wineries, high-end professional sport game day experiences, events at private island residences, Airline tickets, incredible wine packages and more.
Check out the Trailblazers + Prizes today to see what your Team is vying for – please note that we have the 2021 combos listed while we get the 2022 updates built in the background, there’s some great additions this year that we’re excited to share with you.
