Twenty-four of Vancouver Island’s best junior golfers teed it up at Glacier Greens Golf Club on Oct. 1-2 for the annual Slegg Lumber Ryder Cup matches.

Vancouver Island is divided into two zones for junior golf. Duncan and south is Zone 5; west and north of Duncan including Powell River is Zone 6. Each year juniors from each zone compete for the coveted Slegg Lumber Ryder Cup. The participants are treated to meals and tee gifts from monies raised at the annual Slegg Lumber Pro Am tournament held at Glacier Greens each spring.

After the best ball matches on Saturday the teams were even with three points each. Sunday morning was the alternate shot format with Zone 5 winning four of the six matches for a two-point lead. Following lunch the singles matches were played. Some of the matches were close however after the last putt had dropped and the scores tallied Zone 5 had a commanding lead and after the two days of friendly competition Zone 5 took home the trophy.

Representing Zone 5 were Jessica Wong and Hayley Kruse (Victoria Club), Naomi Ko (Olympic View), Lexi Kondrak (Cedar Hill), Matt Broughton, Darren Day and Sean Hay (Royal Colwood), Jake Duvall and Jack Lilly (Uplands), Andrew Funk (Glen Meadows), Jeff Riches (Gorge Vale) and Tristan Mandur (Arbutus Ridge).

Representing Zone 6 were Abigail and Emma Rigsby, Spencer McDougall, Ryan Tysowski and Mark Valliere (Crown Isle), Sarah Nishide (Pheasant Glen), Shirin Anjarwalla and Zach Anderson (Nanaimo), Emily Adams, Dallas Jones and Darien Pridham (Mount Brenton), Terran Berger and Thomas DeLaRey (Glacier Greens) and Greg Palmer (Alberni).

 

“All the participant and their families want to thank Slegg Lumber for their continued support of this excellent program,” an event spokesperson said.
