Well... to say we had an eventful day would be an understatement. We had a 1-foot-in-the-pond shot to make a par save (totally worth it) for the round of the day. We had eagles and birdies and pars and quads from unsuspecting people. In fact... one of our "eagles" was actually the Alberta Golf Tour's FIRST EVER Hole-in-One!!! What a time to do it! Congratulations to Brian Payne who was also the winner of last night's putting competition and long drive. The "senior" came to play this week indeed! :)
Probably one of the most entertaining and fun golf times many of the players had was experiencing the Big Break Competition this evening. There was a flop wall, a V-tree, deep bunker, and a few other skill testing shots. The tallies are still being added up and we'll announce the winners at the Awards Dinner on Saturday. Then, in a turn of events from a challenge of caddie races... we decided to hold our own Altered Course competition! Players were timed from the moment we waved our flag to when the ball was in the cup, with the number of strokes being added to the minutes portion of their time. We will be surprising everyone with the results on Saturday as well. What a great night and a ton of fun with everyone! Give me a few weeks to make up a highlight reel.
We're back at it in the morning at Copper Point Golf Club on the par 62 Ridge Course. This is many players' first times playing these courses, and we've received some comments about playing an "executive" course. Let me say, the management of Copper Point and myself are truly looking forward to the test of golf this course provides (and they'll happily like to see any of you back should you want to redeem yourself later).
Click here to see the results from today's round, and we'll talk to you all tomorrow!
The Alberta Golf Tour is Alberta's only premier flighted amateur competition open to all skill levels, ages, and genders.
