Kinsmen hosted 11th annual Snow Golf TournamentPosted: February 10, 2012
Each year it’s different.
One year the ice on Lake Windermere’s Taynton Bay is free of snow; the next it is two to three feet deep.
Whatever the conditions – FORE!
Saturday, Feb. 4 was the Kinsmen Club of Windermere Valley’s 11th annual Snow Golf Tournament, held on the lake-side of the White Way and in conjunction with the B.C. Pond Hockey Championship at Kinsmen Beach.
The conditions this year? A bit of both. Equal amounts of bare ice and packed snow made for a challenging and fun 18-hole course. While only 16 teams of four took part, the tourney was once again a colourful diversion for people playing in it and watching.
Many White Way users enjoyed watching the antics, and hopefully none had to duck an errant shot. Additionally, tourists visiting to watch the pond hockey tourney were also given a quirky peek into life in the Columbia Valley.
The day’s event wound up at Ray Ray’s Beach Pub, where Kinsmen Club members, such as Bud Dearin, Kelly Love and Steve Kuffler tallied the results and handed out prizes.
Money raised in the tourney will be returned to the community by the Kinsmen Club.
