The Crown Isle Wolf Pack Lone Wolf Open paid homage to the U.S. presidential elections.

Lone Wolf Open golfers spoof U.S. presidential election

With this year’s U.S presidential election spinning bizarrely out of control it seemed entirely appropriate that the Crown Isle Wolf Pack should choose it as the theme for its annual Lone Wolf Open golf tournament.

This led to all 15 contestants showing up in a variety of garbs looking to win the $50 prize for best costume. John “The Verbal Gerbil” Davis appeared as George Washington in full blue military coat, white pants and powdered wig; Marty Barbaro as peanut growing Jimmy Carter; Dennis “The Menace” Teasdale in a suit of plus fours as FDR – without the wheelchair; Neil “The Badger” Havers in a slightly soiled blue dress as Monica Lewinsky; left-leaning Ian Kennedy as Bernie Sanders; Crown Isle pro Rod Prieto celebrating his Mexican heritage with an enormous Mexican flag on his golf cart and dressed as the “Super Mex”; and inevitably a variety dressed as Donald Trump.

The winner, however, chosen by independent judge Jessie Guthrie of the Crown Isle staff, proved to be Art “The Mole” Meyers, as Hillary Clinton dressed in striped prison garb, numbers and all.

With the costume prize awarded, the participants took to the course trying to win the coveted Green Jacket that goes to the Lone Wolf Open winner.

Ken “The Piglet” Grant somehow managed to amass a total of 61 wolf points to prevail, with Jon Lloyd taking up the rear to earn the coveted “Piece o’ S—“ award.

Following play, over beers in the Log Cabin, Randy Baert, last year’s surprise winner, handed over the Green Jacket to this year’s recipient Ken “The Councillor” Grant,

The committee then awarded a variety of annual awards: Rookie of the Year to Casey van Ireland, who only shows up once a year; The Shot of Year to Doug “The  Boy Toy” McIntosh; the Smart Wolf of the Year Award to Art Meyers and the Dumb Wolf of the Year jointly to John Davis and Mike “MJ” Johnston, who though recently moved to Victoria came up for the event.

“Even the U.S. elections will have a tough time surpassing this for fun and frivolity!” a tournament spokesperson said.
