After playing their practice round under sunny skies, the sold out field of players teed up for the 2019 White Point Invitational. As a sanctioned Nova Scotia Golf Association event, the tournament has earned a reputation as a great event, with one of the largest prize tables in the province. With 30+ years under its belt, this signature event just keeps getting better.

This edition of the Invitational marked a couple milestones as well.

It’s the 90th Anniversary for the Golf Course itself, starting in 1929 with 5 holes completed, the Donald J Ross designed gem is one of only 2 in Nova Scotia. A distinction that has attracted golfers from around the world to enjoy this tight and challenging Oceanside course.

2019 also marks the 25th season that Golf Professional and Course Manager Dave Kemshead has been at the helm at this course. Together with his wife Colette at his side onsite, they’ve been incredible champions for the area, and the sport of golf. To mark the occasion, Joanne Veinotte, White Point Beach Resort’s GM dropped by to surprise Dave with a custom ‘golf ‘ cake during the Invitational.
