Vic Higgs Golf Tournament

Major Fundraiser. One of The Heart Foundation of Jamaica's major fundraising event is the annual Vic Higgs Golf Tournament. The late Vic Higgs had served on the Board of the Foundation for many years and was well known in golfing circles, having assisted the Jamaica Tourist Board in the staging of the Johnny Walker World Golf Tournament. The Tournament was started in 1992 when the Friends of the Foundation as well as enthusiastic golfers decided that a Tournament bearing Mr. Higgs' name would be appropriate to keep his memory alive.

 

Thus began the Vics Higs Memorial Golf Memorial Tournament- an event that over the years has enjoyed overwhelming support from the golfing fraternity.This event is held the third Saturday in March each year.
