Crown Isle hosts Hyundai PGA Scramble golf event

Crown Isle Resort & Golf Community on July 30 hosted one of 100 local qualifiers across the country for the Hyundai PGA Scramble.

Eight teams competed for one coveted spot in the regional qualifier. The team of Rick Waldhaus, Steve Blacklock, Matt Beckett, and Doug Forbes-King finished in top place with a score of 54.4.

They will now travel to Whistler’s Nicklaus North with Crown Isle’s Director of Golf, Rod Prieto, to compete in the regional qualifier on Sept. 2. If successful in Whistler, they will travel to the National Championship in Niagara Falls on Sept. 29.

The Hyundai PGA Scramble of Canada is a new national series of events taking place at golf facilities around the country in 2016, culminating with regional finals and a national championship.

Golfers over age 19 are eligible to enter in teams of four. Once through local qualifying, teams are joined by a PGA of Canada professional to play on their team.
