BEA Open

30th Annual BEA Open Golf Tournament

Saturday July 21, 2018 | Osprey Ridge Golf Club

Message from the Chair

I would like to take this opportunity to invite everyone to participate in the 30th Annual BEA Open Golf Tournament on July 21st at Osprey Ridge Golf Club. We welcome our long-standing supporters and new participants to the tournament this year.

Our goal for 2018 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 30 years in 2018. Over 725 African Nova Scotian students have been awarded over $370,000.


We would like to thank all of our generous sponsors, advertisers, golfers, prize and monetary donors from over the past 29 years. 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 21, 2018 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.
