Demoe, Isaac win Logger’s Golf titles

SEVEN HILLS - Tourney returns after hiatus to draw 123 golfers in two days of competition

SEVEN HILLS — Tim Demoe took top honours among men and Brenda Isaac won the women’s division last weekend as the Loggers Golf Invitational tournament made a successful return after a four-year hiatus.

Demoe fired an 18-hole net score of 73, one stroke better than runnerup Scott Mitchell.

Isaac shot 98 to top the women’s field.

The tournament drew 123 golfers for two days of play, split into three flights. Players were treated to a steak dinner following each flight, and the Seven Hills Golf and Country Club main room was laden with an impressive array of prizes donated by local business.

“These guys were phenomenal,” tourney co-organizer Bill Gray said of the sponsors. “I couldn’t believe it.”

Among the top prize-winners was Doug Schofield, who drove off with a full set of new truck tires from Kal Tire for landing closest to the “squiggly line” on the ninth fairway.

Long drive prizes, donated by Landon Motors and Lemare Lake Logging, went to Stu Smith, Toby Roberts and Carol Whyte. Closest-to-the pin prizes, courtesy of Gus’s Bar and Grill, were won by Bob Isaac, Carolyn Fuzi and Glenn Moore.

On behalf of the tournament committee, Gray thanked all the sponsors, the staff of Mount Cain Restaurant and Seven Hill manager Kevin Black for their efforts.

“It was another successful Logger’s golf tournament, and this will continue to be big with your continued help,” said Gray, who assured the tournament will return next summer.

All proceeds raised from the event are given to local charity. Gray said this year’s income is still being totaled. Last year, the committee contributed $1,500 to the Gazette Christmas Hamper Fund.
