Congratulations to the winners of the 24th annual Spring Scramble Columbo Classic! Dan Lubbers, Jack Lubbers and Barry Miller – All members of the Seaforth Golf club shot an impressive 7 under par (64) to win by 1 and prevent a playoff as there were 3 teams tied at -6 (65)!
The event was a great success and although it was a rainy week the weather held up perfectly.
30 Teams of 3 enjoyed a round of golf followed by a delicious roast beef dinner and prizes. Proceeds from the day went to the Seaforth and Area Food Bank, the Cancer Society and the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
The Halldorson Cup was played in a “Scotch Mist” on Sunday with 24 players teeing it up for bragging rights and a new hat! The event is held in memory of the late Dan Halldorson who played on the PGA Tour for many years
The Men’s Closing on Saturday was a great success as players were teamed up for the 18 hole Team Challenge Format playing the front 9 as a scramble and the back 9 as a net best ball scoring 1 player on par 5’s, 2 on par 4’s and 3 on the par 3’s. The teams were fairly matched as the scores were all very close. There were close to hole prizes on all par 3’s and over $1200.00 in gift vouchers awarded to the Men’s League Members. There was even a draw amongst the players who had perfect attendance this season with Derek MacDonald taking that prize, while Ron McCallum won the prize given to those who have attended all year but couldn’t make the final. A steak barbecue followed golf.
The Seniors League had a successful closing on Thursday with a round of golf and delicious roast beef dinner. Low Gross Winner for Senior Ladies was Jan Baldwin and Mary Lou Hyde won Low Net. Low Gross Winner for Senior Men was Richard Kehl and Low Net was Herman Mooy.
Thanks to Richard & Sue Kehl, Jan & Dave Baldwin & Mike Thomas for organizing Senior League.
Last weekend we held our annual Men’s Invitational and hosted golfers from all over Ontario and as far away as Bermuda, South Carolina and New York were divided into four flites so there were lots of opportunities to succeed on the course and on the scoresheet.
Congratulations to our 2018 Club Champions who have earned their own parking spots for the year!
