Weather allowed only one golf tournament to go ahead

Sunny and warm weather was one of the main factors that helped attract more than 100 golfers to the Pheasantback golf course on Thursday, July 22, but the hail storm on the same day forced the cancellation of the seniors’ open at the Stettler Elks Golf and Country club on the next day.

Several MLAs and cabinet ministers joined the competition at the Pheasantback tournament, hosted by Drumheller- Stettler MLA Jack Hayden, Minister of Agriculture and Rural Development.

“We had 110 golfers from across the province,” said Michelle Tetreault of the Pheasantback Golf Club.

Among the participating ministers were Ray Danyluk, Infrastructure Minister, Rob Renner, Environment Minister and Lindsay Blackett, Culture and Community Spirit Minister.

“Businesses and associations across the province were also represented,” said Tetreault.

Jason Duff, Gord Duff and Elizabeth Halpin won the tournament with a score of -13.

During the tournament money was also raised for Heartland Youth Centre.

“Participants were able to putt with beneficiaries from the fundraiser,” said Tetreault.

As for the Stettler’s seniors open tournament, club manager Garry Douglas said they would try to organize it for Friday, July 30.
