Junior golf received a nice financial shot in the arm thanks to another successful Pro-Am for Junior Golf event on April 10 at the Sunshine Coast Golf and Country Club.
Under ideal weather and course conditions, 115 golfers teed off, helping to raise $3,000 in the process.
“It’s a neat event. So many of the same groups come back year after year,” said head pro Jim Pringle. “We had five of the top eight competitive players from the province among the 23 professionals who took part.”
Pros Phil Jonas and Bryn Parry shared the tournament title after both fired a round of -4 (68). As it was getting late in the day, both players decided to shake hands and share the title, Pringle said.
As for Sunshine Coast pros, Mike Hobson fired a 71, Jesse Ostrosky, 72, John Weigner, 75, Chris Lutes, 75, Pringle, 77 and Bill McDonough, 80.
“All in all it was a great day. Real nice to have everyone here and playing,” Pringle said.
On Sunday, April 19, the club hosted its Spring Swing Scramble with 115 golfers on hand.
Perfect weather and a great lunch after golf on the patio highlighted the day on the links.
“It was great to see so many golfers from around the Sunshine Coast out for a fun day at the club,” Pringle said.
Event winners were the team of Dave Chell, Josh Grey, Ty Brackett and Mark Chabot.
