While it can’t be said that every round of golf is good for the heart, an upcoming Fun Golf Tournament in 100 Mile House is aiming to be.

Golfers of all skill levels are invited to “drive one for the health of your heart” on June 20. The event will benefit the South Cariboo Health Foundation, which is fundraising to purchase two new electrocardiogram (ECG) analyzers for the 100 Mile House Hospital lab.

Tee off is 1 p.m. at Marmot Ridge Golf Course in 100 Mile House.

Cost is $35 per person, which includes a nine-hole round, BBQ, silent auction, 50/50 draw and prizes.

Call 250-395-4169 to register.
