Junior golfers big winners at Glacier Greens Pro-Am

Vancouver Island junior golfers were once again the big winners at the annual Glacier Greens Pro-Am tournament, held Tuesday, July 14.

Clear skies greeted the 23 oros and 92 amateurs as they teed it up at this five-person team event with the best two nets scores on each hole counting.

A $10,000 hole-in-one prize was up for grabs on the par three fourth hole thanks to Ken Osborne from ReMax Realty and Keith Larson from the Insurance Center. Five thousand dollars was also there for the taking on holes #15 and #17 thanks to Scott Fraser from Royal LePage Realty and to Bill Girard of Canadian Western Bank.

Unfortunately that illusive ace was not to be found but the players want to thank the sponsors for the opportunity. Other valued tournament sponsors include Red 21 Gaming Tap and Grill, Ben Davies Financial Planning, Mike Code from Island Interlock Landscaping and Keith Gibson / Investors Group / Gee and Associates Private Wealth Management.

KP prizes were awarded to the following amateurs: Tyson Slater on #4, Glenn Watters #7, Bernice Henderson #12, Max Andrew #15 and Adrian Haut #17.

Tourney winners were Lance McCullough from Cordova Bay and his pickup team of local amateurs Brad Scheck, Paul Ives, Dan Buss and Shawn Vincent with a score of -28.  Next at -26 was Highland Pacific’s Axle Riley with Blake Hamilton, Neil Antolin, Thomas Trask and Chris Plamondon. Third place at -25 was Glacier Greens Manager Paul Dashkewytch and his team of Ben Gill, Shane Robinson, Jim Gordon and Try Fogarty.

The following three teams were tied for fourth at -24: Pieter De Lay Ray with  Len Doyle, Wayne Wood, Dave Wacowich, Patrick Leslie. Jason Andrew with Mike Kearns, Jayson Welsh, Rob McLellan, Max Andrew and Terran Berger with Mike Berger, Wally Berger, Andy Clark and Stu Tunheim.

On the pro side Jaman Moussa assistant professional from the River Ridge Golf & Country Club near Edmonton in town visiting his cousin Jesse Moussa who is Comox Golf Clubs new head professional, had an excellent three under par 68. Pretty darn impressive considering he never saw the Glacier Greens Course until two days ago.

Our head professional Bill Kelly and assistant pro Brian Wise were tied for second with 69. Fourth place went to Cordova Bay’s Lance McCullough at 71. Olympic Views’ Matt Matheson was fifth at 73 and Axle Riley from Highland Pacific was sixth at 74.

Following play all participants and volunteers were treated to a fine dinner prepared by our own clubhouse staff.  Special thanks to our head professional Bill Kelly and his Pro Shop team for a job well done.

Till next year try and keep it in the short grass
