Home course advantage for Clapp at Chilliwack Men’s Open

Chilliwack Golf and Country Club pro Brad Clapp takes on 39 pros at this weekend's Chilliwack Men's Open tournament.

Forty of BC’s top professional golfers will be joined by 176 amateurs this weekend as Chilliwack Golf and Country Club hosts the 2013 Chilliwack Men’s Open.

Local CG&CC teaching and playing pro Brad Clapp, the reigning PGA of BC Player of the Year, hopes home-course advantage will help him top an impressive field that includes former PGA tour play Ray Stewart and Nationwide Tour standout Bryn Parry.

The 2013 Open will include 36 demanding holes of golf over two days. In addition, the Open Tournament Horse Race goes Friday evening, starting at 5:30 p.m.. Sixteen two-man teams will go head to head until just one team remains.

Spectators are encouraged to take in the action.

A barbecue and beer garden will be available on both Saturday and Sunday, starting at 11 a.m. on the 15th hole.

CG&CC has hosted several major tournaments over the last 12 months, including the Vancouver Golf Tour’s Major Series, the 2013 PGA of BC Assistant Professional Championship and 2013 BC Senior Women’s Championship.
