The co-founders, Sergeant (ret’d) Bruce Phillips CD and Warrant Officer (ret’d) Tom Martineau CD had an idea in 2018 to start a competitive golf tour in Eastern Ontario for injured veterans called Canadian Veteran Bravo Zulu Tour. The founders believe that veteran wellness has best outcomes when it is done as a community using the game of golf as a vehicle. The 2018 tour success exceeded their expectations and decided to move the initiative to the first veteran not for profit organization of its kind in Canada. The organization has since been renamed to Emeritus Golf (Emeritus – Latin translation is veteran soldier) and the tour is now called the Emeritus Tour. The tour in 2019 is expanded to be inclusive to serving soldiers, veterans and their families. We have an army of volunteers of like minded veterans that support the cause and tournament and really keep this experience one truly unique to veteran camaraderie. If you are interested in getting involved volunteering as a tournament director, please contact your respective Provincial Coordinator, we would love to hear from you.
We hope that you join the competitive tour to rediscover the camaraderie, integrity, and respect that is unique only to soldiering and the Canadian veteran community.
