The Neepawa Golf and Country Club (NGCC) has crowned its 2013 Club Champions.
About 60 club members took part in the two-day 2013 NGCC Club Championship held Saturday, Aug. 10 and Sunday, Aug. 11.
The event continued what has been a good year for the club's local golfers.
“It was a great day of golf,” club pro Landon Cameron said. “Overall this year, we've shown off our course and created a lot of interest from golfers. And, here, our membership base has been very strong.”
In the men's side, Scott Davie led the way with the best overall score for the weekend, recording a 6-over, two-round total of 150 (77, 73) to claim the Men's Club Championship. Joe Chartrand made the final day interesting though, recording a great 1-under score Sunday to come within a stroke of Davie with a weekend total of 7-over at 151 (80, 71).
The other categories were all one-day championship rounds.
Danielle Bell claimed the Ladies' Club Championship by shooting a round of 82 while Angela Kasprick came in a close second place.
In the Senior Men's Club Championship, Gary Barber and Don Schmall went head-to-head to the wire with Gary Barber firing an 80 to win by one stroke. Schmall shot 81.
Meanwhile, the youth showed off their skills as well with Chase Dusessoy claiming the Junior Club Championship by shooting 84 and Daly Chartrand coming a close second with a score of 92.
And, looking ahead to next year's club competitions, Cameron said the club hopes to build off this season's success and to have even more people involved at the course.
“What I think we'll be trying to do is drum up some new members,” Cameron said. “That's going to be our goal for the next few years.”
Westman Tour Event.
The NGCC also hosted a Westman Tour stop on Saturday with 42 taking part in the Neepawa Men's Open.
Some heavy showers ended up lowering participation at the event, causing six groups to be rained out, but overall Neepawa's course was ready to be showcased.
“The weather did put a damper on a few groups, we would have had closer to 60 people if it didn't rain,” Cameron explained.
Tyler Turner edged out Rob Hall and Nolan Tutkaluke – all Brandon golfers – on a countback to take the open.
Scott Davie led the Neepawa contingent by shooting 77, while Grant Jacobsen was right behind him with a 78.
