Valley courses teeing off for ALS
Throughout the province, golf professionals have been participating in the 16th Annual PGA of BC Golfathon for ALS presented by Pacific Blue Cross. Golfing from sunrise to sunset, they golf as many holes as possible to raise funds and awareness for people living with ALS.
Like every year, East Kootenay golf courses dive right into the golfathon.
On June 15, Copper Point Golf Club’s Brian Schaal, Scott McClain, Dennis Bradley, Dale Moore and Casey Johnson golfed from 4:50 a.m. to 10:45 p.m.
Other stats from their Golfathon includes: Total holes played: 200. Total strokes played: 2,019. Total birdies: 75. Total Pars: 407. Total eagles: three.
“We persevered through two separate thunder and lightning storm delays that took away approximately five hours of golfing time, but we managed to still play for 13 hours of golf!” said Scott McClain, Head Golf Professional. “CopperPoint Golf Club’s PGA of BC professionals remain committed to raising funds and awareness for the ALS Society of BC through the PGA of BC Golfathon for ALS.”
Two more Columbia Valley courses tee-off tomorrow (June 21).
Spur Valley Resort’s Kevin Bennett, Jason Griffiths and Brandon Csokonay and Windemere Valley Golf Course’s Michael Midyette, Scott Lawlor and Jack Nordquist will be golfing sun up to sundown.
Proceeds from the Golfathon for ALS provide crucial support services to ALS patients and their families, friends, and caregivers provided by the ALS Society of BC.
