Parry headlines Chilliwack Men’s Open field

Six time winner Bryn Parry is back, one of 200 golfers tackling the Chilliwack Golf Club course Saturday and Sunday.

The Chilliwack Golf Club hosts the annual Chilliwack Men’s Open Saturday and Sunday.

The tournament routinely draws many of BC’s best players to the valley.

This year’s featured group, which includes European senior tour player Phil Jonas and 2014 CMO champion Bryn Parry, tees off Saturday morning at 7:30 a.m.

“It’s always exciting to come back as the defending champion in any tournament,” Parry said. “The Chilliwack Men’s Open always has a great field and I’m looking forward to playing with these guys again. The fans and the excitement around the tournament are always amazing too.”

“We are very fortunate to attract such a strong field every year,” added Chilliwack Golf Club general manager Bryan Ewart. “This year’s roster includes hometown players Jared Rempel and Luke Bogdan, in addition to Bryn, who has now won the Chilliwack Men’s Open an impressive six times.”

The full field of 200 will chase a $2,000 grand prize, with another $500 available to the top Chilliwack Golf Club pro.

For spectators, who get in for free, the best seats in the house are on the 15th hole, where a grandstand is set up to allow perfect viewing of the challenging par four.

The Sleeman’s Beer Garden is set up in the same spot.
