Men’s Open round up

The Seven Hill's Golf Club held their Men's Open tournament Sept. 10-11.

The Seven Hills Golf Club’s Men’s Open tournament, held over the course of two days, Saturday, Sept. 10 and Sunday, Sept. 11, showcased over 40 golfers of all ages and experience levels battling it out across the local links to see who would get the honour of having their name’s engraved on the Low Net and Low Gross plaques.

In what turned out to be an amazing weekend spent on the golf course, I was left in awe as the sun came out from behind the grey clouds on Saturday, breathing life across the course, illuminating in perfect clarity all the reasons why people love to play the sport.

Golf is fun. It’s challenging. It’s nerve-wracking. It’s mentally stimulating. It’s meditative. It’s physical exercise outdoors in a beautiful, wide open environment. What more could you ask for?

After watching some amazing golf shots over the course of the weekend, and some not-so-amazing shots as well,  I realized that when it comes to competition, i.e. signing your name on the dotted line to play at the Seven Hills Golf Club’s biggest tournament of the year, it’s a big deal.

The challenge of playing a good 18 holes of golf for two days straight becomes amplified ten-fold. Talk about pressure to perform!

Congrats to everyone who came out to compete and support the club. I thoroughly enjoyed being given the opportunity to cover the tournament. Golf is a beautiful game filled with ups and downs, ebbs and flows, highs and lows. Take a deep breath and appreciate the sport for what it really means to you.
