Golfers log low scores

Annual Loggers Golf Tourney draws big field to Seven Hills.

SEVEN HILLS—Three teams tied for the overall low score, but everybody walked away a winner in the annual Loggers Golf Tournament, held last weekend at Seven Hills Golf and Country Club.

The tourney drew 144 entries and had only one no-show. So many prizes were donated by North Island businesses, service groups and individuals that many were left on the table after every player received a prize.

“We had probably a dozen prizes left over that we gave to the Cops for Cancer tournament,” Loggers Golf director Bill Gray said. “We really want to thank the community for its support. I can’t say enough about the people who donated and helped us out with prizes.”

All money earned in the tournament, which included raffles and 50/50 draws, goes to a local cause determined by the Logger Golf committee.

“All the money goes right back into the community,” said Gray.

Due to the number of entries, the best-ball team tournament was played in three flights spread over Saturday and Sunday.

By the time the scorecards were all tallied, three groups each boasted low scores of 62 — the Steve Amos team with Craig Marzoff, Larry Bartlett, Tim Demoe and Bill Geisler; the William France team with Brayden Demoe, Arlo Kueber and Cole Morton; and the Russell and Heather Murray foursome with Gary Benton and Bruce Murray.

Holes in one were sponsored by Pacificus Biological Service, Macandale’s Rentals and Finning Campbell River, though nobody claimed an ace on the weekend. Those who came closest were Jeannie Lamont on hole 2 and Heather Murray on hole 4 for the ladies and Tim Demoe on hole 2 and Audie Christensen on hole 4 for the men.

The Landon Motors long drive for men went to Trevor Fear, while the Peoples Drug Mart long drive for ladies was claimed by Janet Dorward. Clint Fiske of Port McNeill was closest to the “wiggly line” to earn the prize sponsored by Kal Tire.
