The annual event is the golf community’s final opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments and successes of New Brunswick’s golf season. In addition to its celebration of champions, Golf NB also hosts a Silent Auction, with proceeds going to support Golf NB’s annually awarded scholarships as well as junior development programs like Future Links, Future Links Mobile Clinics and the Future Links Golf In Schools, all driven through the generous support of Acura.
On October 20th the 2018 Golf NB Annual Awards Banquet & Silent Auction, raised just over $4,300 for the Golf NB Scholarship program and other junior golf related activities.

These awards include the “NBGA 50th Anniversary Scholarship” for male golfers, the “NBLGA 50th Anniversary Scholarship” for female golfers, and the “John Patrick Sears Golf Scholarship” which is open to both genders and is renewable annually.
