Local golfers in the mix

The fifth leg of the B.C. Golf Zone 3 Junior Spring Tour was held at Chilliwack’s Royalwood  Golf and RV Resort last Sunday.  The course lived up to its reputation for having some of the best greens in the valley, thanks to the hard work of Greens Superintendant Douggie Shilleto.

The weather had been a factor in the first four tour stops, and  Sunday’s round was the same, wet and cool.

That didn’t stop the 43 players from shooting well. First place went to Marcus Brown of Hazelmere (Surrey) shooting an impressive one-under-par 71. Second place went to Tony Ko who shot an even-par 72.

Jake Scarrow of Sandpiper Golf Club (Harrison Mills) shot a 75 to tie for sixth.

Scott Gibson and Connor McLellan, both representing the Chilliwack Golf and Country Club, shot very respectable 79’s while Steven Scurr carded an 82.

The final tour stop is this weekend as the juniors tee off at the Mission Golf Course.
