For nearly 25 years the British Columbia Lung Association has offered a great deal to golf enthusiasts and amateurs alike: The annual Golf Privilege Club membership book.

The ideal stocking stuffer for your favourite golfer this holiday season, the book contains deals, discounts and special offers at over 350 golf courses throughout BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba – and even Washington State!

For only $35, you can enjoy the best deals around, all the while supporting the BC Lung Association and the 1 in 5 British Columbians who are living with lung disease. And this year’s book has a brand new look, featuring easy-to-read icons, contact info for each of our golf courses, and even has full-page featured courses with information that goes beyond the green – including course dining and amenities.

“Our membership book saves golfers hundreds of dollars for less than the price of one round of golf. It’s also a great way for golfers to pay less and play more,” says Sharon Korol, BC Lung Association Volunteer Director for Campbell River.

“By giving just a little, you can give the gift of great savings and discounts to your favourite golfer while also helping improve the lives of British Columbians living with lung disease,” continued Korol.

Chronic lung disease is the fastest-growing cause of hospitalization, disability and death in Canada. Incidence of child asthma has reached epidemic levels, lung cancer takes more lives each year than any other cancer, and tobacco use remains the number one preventable cause of death. Help us make lung disease history.

To purchase a copy of the BC Lung Association ultimate golf savings book visit www.golfandsave.ca or call 1.800.665.5864.

All proceeds from golf book sales fund vital lung health research, programs and services.
