A total of 94 men and 70 ladies teed off during the past two weekends at the Williams Lake Golf and Tennis Club for the Boston Pizza Two-Man Classic and the Two-Lady Classic, respectively.
June 14-15 saw players — 20 of who were from out of town travelling from 108 Mile, Kamloops, Winfield and Alberta — shoot it out at four different golf formats in teams of two during two days of play.
Saturday golfers played a front-nine net best ball and a modified Chapman on the back nine.
Sunday it was a two-man scramble on the front, followed by nine more holes of total net score to declare a winning team.
Williams Lake’s Jeff McKlusky and Steve Margetts combined to fire the flight one low score of the weekend — a 160.5-stroke effort to claim the Boston Pizza Two-Man Classic title.
Second place went to Scott Zimonick and Robert Lyons, also from Williams Lake, who combined for a 161.5. Third-place runner ups were locals Terry Satrum and Rob Bardossy with a 163.
In flight two the lakecity’s Hugh Gage and Jody Lambert picked up the victory, shooting a 155. Second place went to John Shepherd and Don Taylor (Williams Lake) with a 163, while Darren Jorgenson and Jim Choppen, who travelled from out of town, placed third firing a 166.
Winners of both the first and second flights walked away with ‘Sky Caddy’ yardage finders. Each day of the tournament also featured individual skill prizes on various holes.
The following weekend, June 20-22, the Two-Lady Classic took centre stage, featuring lots of excitement.
The highlight came on day one of the tournament as Williams Lake’s Shelley Breckenridge performed the unimaginable — firing a hole-in-one on the 158-yard par-three 14th prize hole to win a travel trailer courtesy of Chemo RV.
“Thirteen holes of playing in the rhubarb and I finally shot a straight one,” Breckenridge joked.
“I thought I broke something. Ernie Manchur was the hole judge and he started yelling and then the girls on 15 were teeing off and they came over, so that’s when we knew something went right. That was complete shock.”
Breckenridge said Manchur told her the ball bounced twice in front of the pin, hit the flag stick then dropped straight into the hole.
The Williams Lake Ladies Golf Club hosted the event, which featured 28 ladies from out of town who travelled from Prince George, Quesnel, 108 Mile, Kamloops, Chase and Kelowna.
Overall low net winners were sisters Sharon Cleveland of Williams Lake and Shelley Larson of 100 Mile House with a scored of 157.
Second place in the TLC went to Williams Lake’s Gina Alexander and Allison Levens, who shot a combined 163.
