Chilliwack’s Daniel Caton, Shawn Montgomery and T. Craig Robertson will tee off at the 2013 BC Senior Men’s Championship, being held July 29th-31 at Eagle Point Golf Resort in Kamloops.

The Chilliwack three will try their luck on the par 72 6,393 yard course, taking on 121 top golfers from around the province.

The field includes British Columbia Golf Hall of Fame member and Nanaimo resident Sandy Harper, who is looking to defend his 2012 title. Other favorites in the field include four time winner Gudmund Lindbjerg (Port Moody), 2007 winner John Gallagher (Burnaby) and 2006 winner Tony Hatchwell (Nanaimo).
