The Drumheller Mail - - SPORTS - Al­lie Ruck­man

The end of Au­gust is look­ing very busy for golf en­thu­si­asts. The Al­berta Golf As­so­ci­a­tion will be host­ing a tour­na­ment in Drumheller on Tues­day, Au­gust 30 and Wed­nes­day, Au­gust 31.

This two-day tour­na­ment is cat­e­go­rized as net am­a­teur with hand­i­caps.

Tom Zariski, Vice Pres­i­dent of The Al­berta Golf As­so­cia- tion ex­plains, “This means that all lev­els of skill will be able to play. Play­ers with a higher skill level will be equal to play­ers with a lower skill set be­cause of the hand­i­caps given.”

Play­ers will also be grouped into flights with a win­ner in each flight. The tour­na­ment will be open to men and ladies. A prize cer­e­mony and din­ner will also be held for the par­tic­i­pants of the tour­na­ment.

Zariski is con­fi­dent the town will ben­e­fit from the event.

“It will be very good for busi­nesses. The golf com­mu­nity wants to play in Drumheller. When peo­ple play here they of­ten go home and tell their friends and that stirs up even more peo­ple to come to the val­ley,” says Zariski.

Drumheller ho­tels, busi­nesses and tourist at­trac­tions will also be used, Zariski told The Mail.

He said, “Some peo­ple like to prac­tice the course be­fore the tour­na­ment so they may even come a month be­fore the tour­na­ment. They will be us­ing all of what Drumheller has to of­fer.”
