Chilliwack golfers fill up leaderboard at Vancouver Golf Tour event

The Shootout at Cheam Mountain was held Saturday at Chilliwack’s Cheam Mountain Golf Course

A co-owner of the Cheam Mountain Golf Course, Chilliwack’s Chad McAdie knows every hole like the back of his hand. Playing there Saturday in the latest Vancouver Golf Tour event, the Shoot-out at Cheam Mountain, McAdie used that knowledge to finish second overall in the pro division, shooting a low-gross 53 to finish one shot behind Vancouver’s Andrew Smeeth.

McAdie’s round included five birdies, and he finished the day three under par. Smeeth birdied five of his first eight holes and carded pars the rest of the way, watching anxiously as McAdie made his move. The Chilliwackian was undone by a bogey on the 17th hole, but pocketed $400 in purse money plus 1,100 Order of Merit points.

Twenty one golfers teed off in the pro division.

Chilliwack’s Brad Clapp, Director of Golf at the Cultus Lake Golf Club, tied for 10th overall with a two-over-par 58.

Kevin Stinson (Cheam Mountain) tied for 17th with a four-over-par 60 and Matt Gudmundson (Chilliwack) tied for 19th with a six-over-par 62.

Two international golfers were in the field. Sergio Barba Moreno of the PGA of Spain tied for 12th while South African Christof Appel finished 21st.

Three Chilliwackians finished inside the top five on the amateur side, led by second place finisher Roger Gillespy (Chilliwack Golf Club), whose one-under-par 55 left him one shot off the lead. Mike McGimpsey (Chilliwack Golf Club) was fourth and Richard Smith (Chilliwack Golf Club) was fifth.

Young Maxim McKenzie was on fire in the flight A/B competition where he carded a total-net 51.

The teenager’s round included one eagle and five birdies, prompting this Twitter shoutout from his home club.

“Chilliwack Golf Club junior member dominates @vancouvergolf event at cheammountaingolfcourse today. Congrats maximmckenzie6 on not only winning the A & B Flights; but also beating half of the pro field – straight up.”
