Masset’s Dixon Entrance Golf Club had its opening tournament on March 30, the weather held off, just, allowing some to play 9 holes and others to play 18. Those Russ boys were victorious once again, using a modified Calloway system? A great start to the year. Of special note was Brian Crawley’s winning of the annual membership draw which he so kindly donated back to the club for a fundraising auction.
Sandspit’s Willows Golf Club is opening its season with a two-ball tournament on Sunday April 6. Try to be on that 10 am ferry. This tournament is designed for everyone, pairs you up so you can share your goofy shots that often come at the beginning of both your career and the beginning of the year. Juniors welcomed, ladies too.
Other golf news: Queen Charlotte Secondary school team is forming with hopes of travelling off-island for the zone try-outs. A.L. Mathers school is also practicing for places on the team. The challenge is out for all school ages juniors – May 4 is the all island junior team qualifier in Sandspit. Call 559-4691 for more info.
Sk’aadgaa Naay school team is beginning its indoor putting practices and expects to challenge the school staff shortly and then out to the course.
Ladies, the weather is improving and Green Tee Play Days are ready to begin. The Green Tees are the shorter tees that are ideal for new golfers and yet a challenge for the experience. Thursdays are the suggested day. Car pooling and some equipment is available, start date is April10. Call Fran at 559-4691
The Willows’ popular Wednesday burger nites, a 9 hole tournament which alternates weeks, front and back, are ready to begin April 9. This is the exciting deuce pot builder. Dixon Entrance’s are traditionally on Thursdays.
This may be your year to get out and play. It really is fun, healthy, fine exercise and you mix with great people. You can choose to be recreational golfer or a competitive golfer. Just try it.
