2023 LVA Golf Tournament Saturday Sept. 9th 2023 @ Deerhurst Lakeside Course
We had wonderful weather for our 2023 LVA Golf Tournament which took place on Saturday September 9th at Deerhurst Lakeside Golf Course. As in the past, it was a 9-hole best ball tournament which allowed golfers of all abilities to participate. We had a great turnout with 9 teams (a sell out again this year).
The focus of the tournament was “fun” so although scores were turned in, it was for bragging rights only. Congratulations goes to Team 3 with a score of 29 – Gord and Heidi Card, John and Jane MacLennan. Coming in with a score of 30 was the second place Team 4 – Marshall and Tanja Platt, Curtis Platt and Eden Ritchie.
At the social, we also recognized the following players who won:
- Closest to the Pin Women: Pam Tanton
- Longest Drive Women: Melissa Baird
- Closest to the Pin Men: Marshall Platt
- Longest Drive Men: Chris Miller
The Putting Contest was once again a fun event. This year we had two putting areas set up. This year’s winner of the Putting Contest was Ormond Chalmers with 6 balls through the holes. Ormond managed to squeeze out Marshall Platt and Mike Schmidt right at the end of the contest.
Following the golf, the golfers and their guests/spouses gathered on the Eclipse Terrance for a Mediterranean Display (pita points, hummus and baba ghanoush), a vegetable tray, 3 kinds of pizzas, and drinks. The terrace was a great place to socialize and from the comments we received a fun time was had by all. Each couple/individual left with a gift (the LVA portion of the 50/50 contest is used to fund the gifts so thank you to the “putters”). There was also a draw for two sweatshirts donated by Ruthven Marine (thank you to the Schmidts) along with several other draw prizes.
We could not put on a golf tournament without our LVA volunteers. A huge “thank you” to:
- The Putting Volunteers: Tracie May, Dave and Sharon Reilly and Tracy and Jamie Surface.
- Check-in and Social Area Set-up Volunteers: Tracey Rast, Tracie May, Ruth Chalmers and Mary O’Hea.
Also, thank you to Lakeside Golf Course staff and Eclipse staff who were so helpful throughout the day.
Finally, thank you to those who participated in the golf and social.
We hope to see you again next year!
