His love of golf and his larger than life spirit is one that lives on through his friends and family. Please come join us for a truly exceptional golf tournament filled with Golf, the spirit of hockey and lots of food and drinks.

Experiences at the Course include:– Beat a Pro hole, Live Music, George Trivia Hole (Prize) or NHL questions, Closest to the Pin M/F, Longest drive M/F, Food on the Course (BBQ) Hot Dogs, Smoked Meat, Hamburgers and Beer. After the day of golf we will all do what George did best by eating and drinking during a very special Roast Beef dinner (vegetarian option available) while also hosting a silent auction.

A Celebration of a Life Well Lived

George Edward "Bud" Gardner (October 8, 1942 – November 6, 2006) was the first-ever goaltender for the National Hockey League's Vancouver Canucks. Gardner played for the Canucks after breaking into the NHL with the Detroit Red Wings. With the Wings, Gardner had to compete with Roger Crozier and Roy Edwards for playing time. In Vancouver, he played in 42 games over two seasons before jumping to the new World Hockey Association. In 1972-73, he spent much of the season as the number 1 goalie for the Los Angeles Sharks, and teamed with Russ Gillow to help the Sharks to a 3rd-place finish and allow the 3rd fewest goals in the WHA. George had an incredible love for children (including his own, Paula and Daniel) He would always make time to entertain kids by pulling his dentures out. A gesture that could evoke laughter and fear... He is greatly missed.
