Clear skies greeted the 104 participants as they teed it up for the final day of the 20th anniversary of the Glacier Greens Saturday Men’s Shootout. The format for the third and final round was the challenging alternate shot.
Rising to the challenge, the father and son team of Mike and Terran Berger took top spot with a three-round total score of 207. Second place went to James Dickson and Kevin Hunt at 209. Doug McArthur and Jim Livingstone were next at 216 followed by Peter Hill and Ron Morrison at 219. Tied for fifth at 220 was Rob Borland and Steve Peters, Bernie Johnston and Ferg Webster and Jim Larocque with Stan Mills.
On the net side the team of Dave Osborne and Derek Bullard, holding the lead from day one, finished with a three-round net total of 172.5. Next at 177 was Don Hilchey and Ron Peacock followed by Bill Chiki and Bill O’Neill at 180. Chuck Kennedy and Ken Doll were fourth at 180.5 and Len Doyle with Gary Wood were a solid fifth at 181.5.
All participants were treated to a fine lunch prepared by our own Ben Gill and his staff and had a visit to a well-stocked prize table. The tournament participants and Saturday Men’s committee thank the following sponsors who helped make this tournament possible: Scott Fraser of Royal LePage, Gary Wiebe of Boston Pizza, Bill Girard of Western Canadian Bank and our own Bill Kelly of Bill Kelly Golf.
Bill held a bet-your-shirt contest on #15: hit the green and stay and get the selected item for half price, miss the green and pay full price. Thanks to Keith Gibson of Investors Group who sponsored a $5,000 hole-in-one contest also one #15. Unfortunately that illusive ace was not to be found.
Special thanks to club member Lee Johnson who again donated a hand-painted framed painting to the Memorial Bridge fundraising project. The winner was our course supervisor Wayne Wood.
