Founded in 2002, The Northern Lights Golf Invitational (formerly the Jim Thompson Memorial) has netted over $2.2 million dollars for the Special Olympics Canada Foundation.

The Event

We are very excited to announce that for 2020, the Northern Lights Golf Invitational will be returning to Pinehurst, North Carolina.

We have secured rounds for our tournament on course #2, #4, and #8, all ranked in the top 100 courses in the US. We are also looking at arranging a Monday afternoon tournament for those interested on the short 9-hole Par 3 course called The Cradle. For those that played it last year, they know it is a tough test of golf, not made any easier by the loud rock music and beverage holders on each tee!
