Kid golfers strut stuff at tour­na­ment

The Glengarry News - - Sports in the Glens - Sean Bray

Satur­day saw the Glen­garry Golf and Coun­try Club’s ju­nior golfers on the course to cap off their sea­son with a tour­na­ment.

League direc­tor Henry Viger notes that the pro­gram grew again this year, with 41 young­sters par­tic­i­pat­ing in the weekly ses­sions.

Of those, 32 played in the Aug. 11 tour­ney, where Team Hur­tubise placed first, with 35.5 points, edg­ing out Team McDougall by just 1.5 points.

Each year, the event proves to be a fun one for the kids, whose parents caddy for the nine-hole com­pe­ti­tion.

Vigers says the pro­gram is equally pop­u­lar amongst girls and boys, adding that this year, all par­tic­i­pants re­ceived caps and shirts, thanks to a 2017 bene­fac­tor.

The cloth­ing bears the pro­gram’s new of­fi­cial lo­cal, adapted from last year’s win­ning con­test en­try.

Tour­ney par­tic­i­pants each re­ceived a prize pack­age at the con­clu­sion of the event, af­ter en­joy­ing a hearty lunch, cour­tesy of the golf club. –
