FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — The Fort St. John Huskies will be hosting a golf fundraiser tournament for the first time ever next month.
Huskies President Mike Bacso says that the golf tournament is scheduled to take place at Lakepoint Golf and Country Club on Sunday, September 17th. The tournament will be a Best-Ball Scramble, with the course set to be modified. Bacso says that Lakepoint staff will move the tees on all holes, meaning every hole will be a Par 3. He explained that the change allows less-skilled golfers to better compete, and is also more kid-friendly.
The tournament is being put on to help the team raise money for the upcoming season, and for the team’s hosting of the Alberta Junior ‘B’ Provincial Championships next Spring. Sponsorships are also still available for the tournament, and Bacso says that the Huskies are also looking for volunteers to help out with the tournament.
Registration for the tournament takes place at 11:00 a.m. on September 17th, with a shotgun start at noon. Admission fees are $320 per team of four players, which includes 18 holes of golf, and a dinner after the tournament. Bacso says that since every hole will be a Par 3, there will be a chance at Hole-In-One prizes on every hole.
