Vipond Golf Tournament

Charity Tournament in support of the DDRC

vipond logo

The Vipond Golf Classic is one of the longest-running charity golf tournaments held across Canada that supports local charities dedicated to helping people with developmental disabilities. For 41 years, Vipond and Earl Grey Golf Club have supported the Developmental Disabilities Resource Centre of Calgary (DDRC).

Since the inception of this tournament in 1981, Vipond and the Earl Grey Golf Club have raised over $2.2 million for DDRC clients and the programs that improve their quality of life. Funds raised at the Vipond help the DDRC offer specialized services to clients with diverse communication needs, including American Sign Language (ASL) and Augmentative Alternative Communication support. Over the years, generous tournament participants, sponsors, and donors have helped fund programs and projects such as Learning and Leadership, the Augmentative and Alternative Communication Centre, the retooling of Advanced Industries, Bow Valley Catering, Bow Place, and many more.

Thank you for considering this exceptional golf experience in support of the DDRC. For more information or assistance with registration and sponsorship, please contact Kyle Glieheisen by e-mail at vipond@ddrc.ca.

To reduce costs and maximize the funds raised, we have introduced online registration option. The 2022 Vipond aims to raise $25,000 for the DDRC. This solicitation costs less than 5% of the expected funds raised.
