The Dan Halldorson Memorial Senior Men’s and Women’s open is both a tribute to the late local PGA legend Dan Halldorson, and a fundraising event for the Heart and Stroke Association. 

The event is still seeking sponsorship and players, so if you or someone you know is interested, now is the time to get involved, as the event is approaching quickly. 

Dan was born in Winnipeg but raised in Brandon. He joined the Canadian PGA tour in 1971 and amassed 12 career professional wins. He was elected to the Canadian Golf Hall of Fame in 2002, and the Manitoba Sports Hall of Fame in 2007. 

Halldorson passed away in 2015 and so this tournament was organized to honor his memory and support an amazing Canadian charity, the Heart and Stroke foundation. The event will take place at Oak Island Golf Resort on July 31st, 2018, and is being supported by two of Brandon First’s stakeholders; Barry Mymko of Silvertip Sport is the Tournament Chair, and Clarion Hotel and Suites Brandon is the sponsor hotel.
