Sixty-two golfers enjoyed a great Seniors Open Golf Tournament in Terrace August 8-9.

Everybody had lots of fun,” said Austin Turner, pro-shop associate at the Skeena Valley Golf & Country Club.

Weather was not great. It was kind of wet out the first day, but on Sunday it was better,” he said.

Of the 62 participants, 20 to 25 were from out of town.

Turner says those numbers are average for the annual 18-hole tournament, but they would love to have more people out.

Two winners were Kim Haworth, with a two-day low gross score of 156, and Mona Nester, with a two-day low net score of 134.
