This year’s event, in support of MusiCounts, brings together once again musicians and fans for an 18-hole Texas Scramble/Best Ball and concert festival. The goal of the tournament is to have music on every teebox, and throughout the festival site from morning to night!
TOURNAMENT IS SOLD OUT – Golf registration begins at 9 a.m. with a 10 a.m. shotgun start. After the golf tournament, the Sunset Ranch Golf Course is turned into festival grounds with live music starting at 3:30 p.m., through to 10:00 p.m..
“Our goal is to build the most unique golf tournament and festival out there, not only by distributing live music throughout the event, but also by having our contribution to MusicCounts help put music in the hands and ears of our communities’ children.
“At Gonzo Okanagan, we believe music can change lives in many ways. Music can bring joy, create memories, we believe, also heal. Together, through music, we can make a difference,” said Brad Krauza, CEO of Gonzo Okanagan and event organizer.

The 2018 inaugural event, which took place in June of 2018, was an astounding success, with a sold-out tournament, and a rockin’ concert with headliner’s Honeymoon Suite, and raised just over $10,000 in cash and donations that went to a local Okanagan single mother of 3 young children who was struggling financially with taking care of her youngest child with Alexanders Disease, a progressive neurological disease.
