Billy Joss Open Celebrates Another Successful Tournament In 2018

Billy Joss Open Golf Tournament. Ulukhaktok, Northwest Territories.

The world's most northern nine-hole golf course was once again home to the Billy Joss Open, held July 13 to 15, 2018 in Ulukhaktok.

The tournament is a summer tradition in the community, having been held for the past 31 years.

This year, over 25 golfers participated in the event - including eight up-and-coming youth players!

Inuvialuit Regional Corporation would like to congratulate all of the golfers that took part in this year's Billy Joss Open. And a special thank you to anyone that worked or volunteered over the course of the weekend - without you these great events in our region would not exist!

You can view a list of the results below.
