Royal Colwood Golf Club Vic Painter Memorial Bursary

Value: $500

The Royal Colwood Vic Painter Memorial Bursary was created in December 2001, in memory of Vic Painter, a longtime member of the Royal Colwood Golf Club and an accomplished golfer of the Club. Many knew Vic as a dedicated, warm individual who held many records in golf, including being Club Champion four times. Vic celebrated each year with his ability to “shoot his age” and it was reported he had even lost track but it was understood he had accomplished this over 150 times. Vic passed away in August 2001 and the Royal Colwood Golf Club, its members and many of his friends dedicate this award to him because of his love for the game of golf. Vic’s commitment to the Royal Colwood Golf Club and the community will be fondly remembered.

One or more awards will be made available to students at RRU. Preference will be given to RCGC members, family members, or employee students seeking to advance their education at Royal Roads University. Being a golfer at a RCGC reciprocal club and demonstrating financial support will also be considered. This award is also a result of the Royal Colwood Golf Club's generosity and partnership with Royal Roads University.
