We had some more great weather today as the players battled in the Day After Canada Day Challenge in Turner Valley! The course was playing tough as the wind picked up throughout the day... some penalties were had, but more fun and good times meeting new fun golf friends. The players had a lot of pressure on them today which added another element besides the wind. Once again, we saw great scores from the field.
In the Champ Flight, first timer Doug Skulsky took an unfortunate 2-stroke penalty, but still managed to squeak out a win by 1 shot over Matthew May and Adam Burton with a 78! Great showing, and can't wait to have you back out again to battle in the VERY competitive Champ Flight.
The A Flight may have seen almost every number between 79 and 90 today. 2015 Season Rookie, now Veteran, Thomas Reid, managed to shoot an impressive 79 with 2 big numbers on the scorecard for a 3 shot win over Derek Lovlin who is fresh off a T5 finish at the Alberta Golf Men's Mid-Handicap.
The B Flight was missing some regulars today, but that didn't mean Fred Zdanowicz wasn't going to go out there and shoot a lights out 81 for an 8 stroke win over the steady Sandra Schell.
And with only 2 people in the C Flight, but a hard fight nonetheless... both Members of Turner Valley, it was a very close up and down game between Jason Gooch and first-timer Mike Stewart. Gooch came out on top with a one stroke victory shooting 102.
Congrats to everyone! Don't forget our next event is at Innisfail on Monday, July 13. This is a course that should be on everyone's Golf Bucket List - let's all go have some fun. Until then.... ENJOY Stampede!
