The 50th anniversary of the Royal LePage Ladies Tillicum Golf Tournament was a golden success at the Sunnydale Golf Course.  A field of 79 ladies enjoyed two days (Aug. 18-19) of fun and competition under very warm skies.

Overall low gross winner was Bev Byerley with 166 and overall low net winner was Sandra Gallaway with 141 on count-back. Both are from the host Sunnydale club.

The tournament began with a Tombstone Race as well as a meet and greet on Friday.  The Tombstone Race winners were: 1st Carmel Horochuk and Gillian Iddiols; 2nd Betty Lund and Jane Keoughan (by chip-off) and 3rd Trish Heyland and Pat Verchere. Kassie Cessford ran the golden putting contest with Frankie McCaffery being the lucky winner.

The golfing on both days was followed by a delicious meal by Ben and staff in the kitchen who also prepared delicious breakfasts for each morning. Kay Dick, chairperson from the 1962 Ladies Tillicum, was a special guest and she mentioned that the entry fee 50 years ago was $5 and there was no kitchen at that time so the ladies made all the meals themselves.

“Many thanks to all our sponsors and especially to Royal LePage who was the low gross sponsor and the Eagle radio station who sponsored the low net prize,” a tourney spokesperson said. “They have been loyal sponsors for many years and it is much appreciated.”
