Ninety-seven Glacier Greens participants were treated to a fine Oct. 4 early fall day as they teed it up for the Saturday Men’s annual fall wrap tournament – affectionately known as the Devil’s Scramble. It is a team event with six holes best ball, six holes scramble and six holes of the dreaded dice game.
This year’s winning team on a count back with a score of -14 was Glacier Greens own assistant pro Brian Wise and his team of Philip Ball, Warren Brandson, Al Pasanen and Leo Lamothe. Also at -14 was Glacier Greens Pro Shop staff member Terran Berger and his team of Ted Sauve, Bruce Henderson, Henry Bonde and Armin Reckhard.
Third place at -13 went to Shane Robinson, Neil Neilson, Glen Parsons, Stan Kirkland and Hugh Scoullar. Fourth at -12 was Burt Graham, Bill Girard, Pat Renaud, Wayne Hay, Rod Verchere and rounding out the top five at –11 was Chuck Kennedy, Mike Pollock, Al Murray, Bill Krier and Richard Wand.
Following play each player was treated to a fine chicken dinner prepared by our own Ben Gill and his staff and then had a visit to a well-stocked prize table. Team KPs were available on all five par threes thanks to Bill Kelly (Bill Kelly Golf), Scott Fraser (Royal LePage Realty), Bill Girard (Canadian Western Bank), Gary Weibe (Boston Pizza) and the Saturday Men’s Club. A special thank you to club member Lee Johnson who once again donated a framed painting to the Memorial Bridge fundraiser table. This year he painted the Canadian Navy’s carrier “Bonaventure.”
“My committee and I would like to thank all the Saturday Men’s players for their continued support and a special thank you to head professional Bill Kelly and his staff for their support and assistance every Saturday morning,” said Saturday Men’s co-ordinator Len Doyle.
“Safe travel and good health to our Saturday morning players who head south for the winter and for those that stay behind, weather permitting we will continue our Saturday Morning competitions.
