Senior men’s golfer swings par

Bruce Chisholm pars March Meadows course: First time in recent years a senior does so

On Aug. 21 and 28 the March Meadows Senior Men’s Golfers played their annual Golf Tournament.

A total of 36 participants enjoyed a sunny day on Aug. 21, and even though it was a little overcast for the second day, they managed to finish before the rain started.

John McCormick, who was one of the coordinators of the event, says that “one of the biggest highlights was the fact that Bruce Chisholm parred the course. I can’t remember a senior ever doing that before.”

Chisholm scored a low-gross of 72 on Aug. 21.

“It’s a tough golf course,” said Chisholm. “But it was just one of those things where everything fell into place. I kept the ball in play, that’s a big thing on that course.”

This score, together with a 79 on the second day of the tournament meant that Chisholm walked away as low-gross winner overall.

Low-net winner was Ron McGovern. A tie for second place low-net was split between Glen Richardson, and Dave Melnick. Third place low-net went to Lance Lingren.

Another highlight, says McCormick, was that McGovern had four birdies on the last round. “Which is really quite extraordinary,” said McCormick.

Winners will be presented with their awards at the Senior Men’s Golf Wind-up on Oct. 9, at March Meadows.

The group will play nine holes of golf before hand, and then enjoy a luncheon.

Prizes will also be given out for most birdies, sandy pars, KPs, least number of putts, and others.

On Sept. 4, the Salt Spring Inter-club will be joining the Senior Men’s Golfers at March Meadows, and on Sept. 11 it will be a round of regular golf putts. On Sept. 18 and 25, the men will play regular golf.
