Men’s golf wraps up

The Senior Men held their Wind-up Tournament and Awards luncheon mid-October. The men's golf group visited 30 venues during this season.

The Senior Men held their Wind-up Tournament and Awards luncheon mid-October.  After thirty weekly golf venues, with only two rained out, analysis of the weekly stats allowed us to award prizes to the winners of the various events held throughout the season.

We started the morning with our traditional nine hole Tourney using only three clubs.  Even though we were limited in weapons to choose from some fine scores were made.  Jug Kalar shot 43 and John Leach led the Net scores with a 32.  Oz Nelson had a 33, while Mike Tuck and Dale O’Connell both had 34.  The Duffer played well and says he’s playing with only three clubs from now on!

Jug Kalar won both of our major tournaments this year, winning the Match Play Championship and the Net Championship Trophy.  Garry Callander was Runner-up in the Match Play and Oz Nelson was second in the Net Championship.  The Gross Score Champ was Brian Crossan, with Tom Denninger claiming Runner-up.

There was a tie for first place in the Putting Championship with Roy Lavigne and Jug Kalar both averaging 28.66 putts for 18 holes.  Ray Bourassa had the most K.P.s, with Graeme Cockle taking second.  Rick Nott had the most Birdies over the season with Gerry Janzen in second place. Earl Laforge had the most Chip- ins with Janzen again picking up the prize for second. Garry Callander had the most Sandy Pars with Rocky Wise winning the Runner-up prize.

Our organized golf is over for this year but some hardy members play in the winter if the sun is shining and the course is not frozen.  Some guys head to south to pursue the sport in warmer climes.

We hope to see everybody back in the Spring and hopefully some new members too!
