PGA of BC Seniors' Championship history

Seniors' Championship

The PGA of BC Seniors' Championship is open to all members within the Association aged 50 and older.

Contested each June, the event is a 36-hole, individual stroke-play championship. Previously, the Association awarded a bonus to the top-placing senior-aged player in the PGA of BC Championship, but a standalone tournament was created in 1995. Past editions of the tournament were open to Professionals from outside the PGA of BC, but the event is currently restricted to Association members. 

The winner has their name etched on the Ben Colk Trophy, named in memory of the former Langara Golf Course Head Professional, who was known not only as an excellent player and instructor, but also for introducing the pull cart to golf in British Columbia. 

Greg Pidlaski's four titles in the event are the most all-time by one player.
