Keep your eye on the ball is not only good advice for a golfer teeing off, but it is also important when you have 72 golfers on the same course at the same time. Avoiding flying balls and scooting carts are just two of the annual challenges at the seminary golf tournament, held this past 2 June at the Sawmill Golf Club near St. Catharines. This remains our most popular and important fund-raising event–but there’s certainly room for more golfers next year. Save the first Monday in June on your calendar!
For those who arrived before the 1 pm shotgun start, there were warm-up games such as the putting contest, a BBQ lunch, and a chance to buy mulligans. Dr Torgerson provided supervision for the hole-in-one contest on the tenth hole, so there would be no dubious claims for the $10,000 prize (sponsored by Intact Insurance, courtesy of Jeff Scott). Honesty in score-keeping in the “best ball” format tournament was also crucial to determine proper prize distribution at the concluding awards banquet. The winning team this year was Robert, James, and Andrew Krestick, and Scott Hannusch.
Special thanks to those who sponsored holes and donated prizes and to Linda Lantz and her helpers for organizing and running this year’s event.
