The Glen­garry Golf and Coun­try Club in Alexan­dria hosted the Divi­sion ‘ H’ men’s in­ter­sec­tion­als on July 10, when the lo­cal team placed sec­ond.

The win­ning side rep­re­sented the Ea­gle Creek Golf Club, from Dun­robin, west of Ottawa. The group recorded 55 points in the match play for­mat where golfers are essen­tially play­ing three games (one ver­sus a player on each of the other teams) at one time. A win was worth two points, so po­ten­tially each player could score a max­i­mum of six points for his squad.

Glen­garry’s crew notched 30 points for sec­ond place.

The team in­cluded Alas­tair MacDonald, John Miller, Moe Belle­feuille, Robb Starkauska­s, Jean Marc Tit­ley, De­nis Barsalo, Bren­nen Fil­ion, Nick Quen­neville, Marc Fa­jertag, Ben Lowe, and Jean The­o­ret.

Rounding out the stand­ings were the groups from Ham­mond (20 points) and Mont Cas­cades (15 points).

The event was or­ga­nized by GGCC club cap­tain Jean Marc Tit­ley.

Boys pro­vin­cial champs

Alexan­dria teen golfer Ben Lowe com­peted at the ju­nior provin­cials tour­na­ment, at the Cowansvill­e Golf Course.

His open­ing round, on July 12, saw him shoot an 89. He cut that by eight strokes on the sec­ond day, with an 81, for a to­tal of 170, but missed the cut, which was set at 161, and did not ad­vance.

None­the­less, the 16-year-old says the ex­pe­ri­ence was a ter­rific one.

As re­ported in last week’s edi- tion of The News, Lowe went on to claim the cham­pi­onship of the Glen­garry Open.
