Women on the green for annual tournament

The annual Skeena Valley Ladies Open was held July 6 - 9 at the Skeena Valley Golf Course

The annual Skeena Valley Ladies Open was held July 6 – 9 at the Skeena Valley Golf Course.

The event saw 44 women from Terrace, Kitimat, Prince Rupert, Smithers and Burns Lake take part in the two-person team event.

“A great time was had by everyone,” said Denise McGillivray, secretary of the Skeena Valley Ladies Club, of the weekend.

“Good turnout, beautiful weather,” she said, noting the ladies fared better than the men, whose tournament earlier in the month was wet and soggy.

McCarthy Motors sponsored the whole tournament and co-sponsored the hole-in-one prize with Western Financial Group, which was not claimed this year.

Hawkair, Don Diego’s, Lakelse Financial and Fountain Tire also donated prizes.

Coranne Dohler of Smithers won the draw prize of a trip for two to Las Vegas. Carol Shaeffer won the Accuracy prize of entry fee into next year’s tournament.
