Kids shine on the golf course

The Glengarry News - - Sports In the Glens - We will have more on the golf club’s ju­nior pro­gram in a fu­ture edi­tion of The Glen­garry News. – Sean Bray

With par­ents as their cad­dies, the young mem­bers of the ju­nior pro­gram at the Glen­garry Golf and Coun­try Club took over the course on Sun­day for their an­nual sea­son-end­ing tour­na­ment.

Pro­gram leader Henry Viger says he was thrilled with the par­tic­i­pa­tion, with 32 of 37 mem­bers com­pet­ing in the event.

The young­sters were grouped into eight four­somes, play­ing a scram­ble for­mat on the front nine holes.

When the score­cards were checked, Team Pa­trick had the low­est net score, a 35.5, one stroke bet­ter than Team Myr­iam.

The vic­to­ri­ous group in­cluded Pa­trick Ro­chon, Tris­tan Pa­que­tte, Caleb Pa­que­tte, and Nathan Papps.

Round­ing out the stand­ings were Team Ben (38), Team Ian (38.5), Team Max (39), Team Blake (39.5), Team Pierre-Luc (41.5), and Team Jack (43.5).

The tour­na­ment con­cluded with a light lunch and the pre­sen­ta­tion of an ar­ray of golf-re­lated prizes.
