Starkey king of the Hill

Hill Billy Masters golf tourney held at Crown Isle and Storey Creek

Ninety golfers participated in the Hill Billy Masters tournament this year. Participants were treated to great summer weather and cold cocktails.

The two-day tournament was played at Crown Isle and Storey Creek golf courses.  The winner, on a count back, was Andy Starkey who received the prestigious Mack Jacket and $340.

With his winnings, Starkey had the honour of paying for the Hill Billy Masters traditional meal of a hot dog at the turn for all golfers. Starkey’s winning score was 132, second place was Doug Dueck at 132, third place was Rick McCaughan at 133, Herb Chambers, Brian Haslett and Dan Wallis all tied for fourth at 135.

The most honest golfer was Greg. Unfortunately, that trophy was lost last year.  All the golfers thanked “Tadder” (Doug Kines) for all of his hard work in organizing this tournament each year, an event spokesperson said.
