A successful Sunnydale Royal LePage Ladies Tillicum golf tournament with 106 golfers was completed Aug. 9 under beautiful sunny skies.
A new format was introduced this year with a one-day tournament as well as players having a partner and playing 2-Ball.
The horserace began the tournament and the winners were Judy Berkeley and Sherry Harrison. The putting contest was run by our junior golfers and was won by Judy Berkeley. An entertaining line dancing presentation provided us all with a lot of laughs. Delicious food and wine was enjoyed by all. Thank you to Natural Pastures Cheese, Quality Foods, Thrifty Foods and John’s Independent Grocer for their donations.
