The 2015 August long weekend marked the third year of the Comox Valley Men’s Open sponsored by Westview Ford and presented by Coastal Community Private Wealth Group.

The Comox Valley Men’s Open is contested over three days at three different golf courses – Glacier Greens, Sunnydale and Crown Isle. This year saw a great finish for the overall title. After 53 holes the play was tight: three players stood on the 18th tee at Glacier Greens with a share of the lead.

Matt Haddad pulled his tee shot resulting in a bogie on the last hole. Both Jeff Edwards and Tyler VanAnrooy hit great approach shots, Jeff to eight feet and Tyler to six feet. Jeff’s putt just missed on the low side of the hole leaving Tyler a putt for the win. Under the gun, Tyler stepped up and dropped the putt for the win. “Congratulations to the 2015 Comox Valley Men’s Open champion Tyler VanAnrooy and to low net champion Jeff Edwards,” an event spokesperson said. VanAnrooy finished with a gross score of 212 while Edwards had 204 net.
