It’s just about time when the golf clubs get packed away in exchange for winter attire, skis and skates.

However, not before the Williams Lake Golf and Tennis Club hosted its annual Fall Golf Ball tournament last Saturday, Oct. 15 signifying the end of the season for the local links.

Twenty-six teams and 104 players out-lasted an early-morning freeze. Their patience was rewarded by a beautiful, sunny afternoon of golf.

The tournament, a four-team scramble format, was won by George McGibbon, Shane Wilkie, Chris Stevens and Cody Wells, who shot a four-man scramble score of 59.
