Second annual Siegmueller golf tournament a great success

More than 150 golfers and volunteers take part in memorial event

Golfers hit the links at the Williams Lake Golf and Tennis Club Saturday in memory of Jordan Siegmueller.

Organizers Crystal and Cody Wells are the driving force behind the Jordan Siegmueller Charity Golf Tournament, which this year saw 140 participants and 15 volunteers take part in.

Crystal said it was an emotional day for those who knew Jordan and continue to miss the young golfer, lost in an accident two years ago.

She said having so much support for the golf tournament from the community helps.

“It’s incredibly supported by the community, and we feel that love and support as we run this tournament to keep Jordan’s memory alive,” Crystal said, noting more than $60,000 in prizes was up for grabs, donated by generous residents and businesses.

Golfers could sign up in three divisions: fun, mixed or competitive.

There was a tie for first place this year between a mixed team consisting of Crystal, Cody, Jarod Golightly and Shane Wilke and a competitive team consisting of Tyson Renwick, Brad Purdy, Matt Stewart and Adrian Vath. The winner was decided by a coin toss, with the competitive team of Renwick, Purdy, Stewart and Vath taking first.

This is the second year local charities will benefit from the funds raised at the tournament.

This year an estimated $17,000 was raised and will go toward the Jordan Siegmueller bursary and Big Brother Big Sisters of Williams Lake and District.

It is such a terrible thing to lose a young person, however, it is uplifting to see that grief used in a positive way for the betterment of the community and for the healing of those who knew Jordan.

Well done to all those involved.
