Golf Club's 11th annual fundraiser was a lot of green fun

If one had wandered out to Bowen Island Golf Course Sept. 7, they might’ve thought it was March 17. 

All manner of golfers clad in emerald shades took to the course for the club’s annual fundraiser, this year with an Irish theme.

“There was lots of green with leprechauns and glitter and pots of gold,” laughs pro shop manager Les Meszaros. (Islanders might remember last year’s disco-themed “stayin’ alive” fundraiser.)

The club raised tens of thousands of dollars through silent and live auctions, donations, sponsorship and more. The tournament had 80 golfers with a further 40 people up for dinner at Montgomery’s Grill. 

“The community supported us tremendously,” says Meszaros. “Everyone was very pleased.”

Winners included: Lucas Puri, David Bellringer, Steve Bellringer, and Kathy Thom with a Texas scramble core of eight under par. There was also a shootout competition of 60 yards closest to the pin won by Melissa Roocroft and Peter Goumeniouk.

The club would like to thank: Cheryl Baillie, Sandra Dawson, Ruth Openshaw, Kathy Clarke, Heather Coulghart, Bill Brown, Cro Lucas, Bob Sangster, Al Morse, Bruce Russell, Sandra Dawson, Sue Hoffar, Linnea McCaskill, Dorene Russell, Audrey Shirley, Marge Swain, Gael Booth, Jeannie Seward-Magee, Peter Clarke, Rob Purdy, Pat Adams, Terry Boss, Bill Hayes, Dale Hewitt, Les Meszaros and Jamie Smith.
