Peguis First Nation held their 35thannual Last Chance golf tournament at Bel Acres Golf and Country Club on Sept. 29.
Despite strong winds and rain, a combination of 51 men, ladies and seniors showed up to play, making it a success.
Just like its name, this tournament is the last chance for all competitors to get out to try their golfing skills and if lucky, to win a prize for their division.
“Unfortunately on this day, the weather made it that much more difficult for anyone to conquer $25,000.00 hole in one contest, sponsored by Tipi Insurance,” Patrick McKay, the event organizer, said. Considering the adverse elements, “We need to thank all the brave golfers for coming out.”
Event sponsors included Peguis Gaming Commission, Tipi Insurance Partners, Peguis Development Corporation and Peguis Home Hardware.
There were many who assisted at the tournament, such as Marshall & Donna McCorrister, McKay’s daughter, Sierra and her friend, Anthony Bear. Robin Henderson and the staff at Bel Acres Golf and Country Club were also instrumental in hosting the successful golf tournament for Peguis First Nation.
The total number of events was: four men’s flights, 1 ladies’ flight, and 1 seniors’ flight. Due to incredible support, each of the five lady golfers received a prize and every one of the four seniors also won a prize.
