In the late 1970's, Jim Vipond, a well known southern Ontario sports writer, initiated the first VIPOND Golf Classic. Riverside Country Club hosted Saskatoon’s first Vipond Classic in 1983 as a men’s event with proceeds distributed to local organizations. (The women of Riverside host a separate annual Ladies Classic for charity as well.) This mens tournament was run in two draws on the Monday after Fathers Day (June 20th, 2022). Check out the Golfers Guide for everything there is to know about the event or this video created by Stealth Media.
