The tournament runs June 18-20, with defending champion Jackie Little (Port Alberni) looking for her third straight title. Little won last year at Victoria’s Highland Pacific Golf Course. If she wins next week’s event, she’ll join Colleen McCulloch and Dorothy Wilks as the only women with four or more championships.
Others to watch are Penny Baziuk (North Saanich), Karen Pultz (Surrey), Cindy Beaudet (Calgary) and Catherine Allen (Bellingham).
Women ages 50 and up will play 54 holes of stroke-play competition.
All players challenge for the overall title, and the top three will represent BC at the Royale Cup Canadian Women’s Senior Championship, running Aug. 20-22 at the Spallumcheen Golf and Country Club in Vernon.
