The Two-Lady Best Ball Tournament was played on June 11 at the Castlegar Golf Club.

This is the second year that we have used this format, and again it was a great success. We attribute this result to the very generous support of our loyal sponsor of  27 years, Heritage Credit Union, and the many donations of our community businesses.  Our participant numbers were down a little to 88 ladies from the local clubs in the West Kootenays, but they all had a great day of fun and golf. Many dressed up as characters of movies, to show off our theme, ‘Hollywood Calling’. Any major rain held off until we were off the course, a real stroke of good luck.

The photos to the right  are of prize presentations by the manager of the Castlegar branch of Heritage Credit Union, Larry Bomak, to the Overall Low Gross Winners, Wanda Flack, and Connie Kostash from Christina Lake Golf Club. Their combined Gross score was 78.

Larry Bomak also presented to the other major winners for Overall Low Net , local CGC members Trudy Biln, and Vi Stoushnow, who came in with a Low Net score of 58.
