The first major tournament of the year for the Prince Rupert Golf Course wrapped up on Victoria Day as fifteen teams of two person pairings took on the challenges of the thirty six holes over two days of play.
And while the long streak of sunshine and warm temperatures had vacated the North Coast by the time the first ball was teed up on Sunday, the wet weather did hold off for much of the two day tournament.
The Top Five Finishes included:
Josie Lam/Maria Wells 59/58 for a two day net total of 117
Evan Deschamp/Bart Kuntz 60/59 for a two day net total 119
Ross McNish/Doug Kydd 62/59 for a two day net total of 121
Trevor Deschamp/Arlen Deschamp 63/60 for a two day net total of 123
Shane Foreman/Andrew Schaeffer 64/62 for a two day net total of 136
The final placement made for a thrilling comeback through the final day as the Foreman/Schaeffer pairing overtook the duo of Richard Wright and Ron Miller 59/67 to grab the Top Five finish on the weekend.
Next up for the Prince Rupert Golf Course is the Ladies' Jubilee set for the weekend of Saturday June 9th and Sunday June 10th. With a practice round for the tournament to take place on the Friday ahead of it.
