Junior golf report

What's been taking place on the local competitive golf scene


The last two days have been busy for local junior golfers.  On Friday at Birchbank, eight high school teams which consisted of forty players assembled to play in the combined Crowe / Rossland high school tournament.  All the players struggled, but the RSS team came out on top with a team total of 335.  Crowe finished second with a total of 359 and Nakusp placed third with a total of 364.  This was Rosslands third win of the spring.

The Crowe team had two players finish inside the top ten.  Ryan Fullerton finished 4th overall with an 84 and Alex Rugg finished 8th with an 88.  Braden McKay from RSS won the tournament with an 80 and Brenan Moroney and Tyler McKay both tied for second with 82’s.

On Saturday in Balfour the local Junior Circuit kicked off.  Twenty juniors attended and challenged the difficult Balfour course.  The kids played off the very back tees and had to deal with some wind and difficult greens.
