BEA Open

28th Annual BEA Open Golf Tournament

Saturday July 23, 2016 | Osprey Ridge Golf Club

Message from the Chair

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome everyone who will be participating in the 28th BEA Open Golf Tournament on July 23rd. We are pleased to announce the BEA Open is moving to Osprey Ridge Golf Course in Bridgewater. After careful consideration, it was decided to change our venue so we could continue to offer this event on a weekend date. We sincerely valued our time at Ashburn Golf Course. We are looking forward to a new chapter in raising much needed funds for the BEA Bursary Program. We welcome our long-standing supporters and new ones at Osprey Ridge.


Our goal this year is to reach beyond $20,000 so that in the near future we will be able to increase the financial amount of each bursary and at the same time increase the number of successful recipients. This year, the BEA Open Golf Tournament will be celebrating 28 years of existence. Over 675 African Nova Scotian students have been awarded over $338,000.


We would like to thank all of our generous sponsors, advertisers, golfers, prize and monetary donors. Without your continued support of this very important event, we would not be able to raise the much needed funds for the BEA Provincial Bursary Program.


We hope to see you at Osprey Ridge Golf Course on Saturday, July 23, 2016 and maybe make a weekend out of it. We encourage all potential sponsors, donors, financial and prize contributors to participate and support our youth in receiving their post-secondary education.


Thank you in advance for your support.
