Estevan – When the Saskatchewan Oil and Gas Show, also known as the Weyburn Oil Show, finishes on June 4, don’t pack up and head home just yet. Turn southeast and go the 88 kilometres to Estevan, where the Estevan Oilfield Technical Society will be hosting its 58th Annual Oilmen’s Golf Tournament.
The event will take place June 5-7 at the TS&M Woodlawn Golf Club, south of Estevan in the Souris River Valley.
There will be a choice of 18-holes on Friday or Saturday, or 36-holes which include a qualifying round on Friday or Saturday and a shotgun start on Sunday.
As usual there is a steak or lobster barbecue at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 6. The cabaret will kick off at 8 p.m. featuring Wonderland. The cabaret is open to the public, but no minors are allowed.
Blair Wilchynski, spokesperson for the OTS, said, “We will take registration right up to the last minute, unless we are full, but they, have to be in the oil and gas industry.”
Wilchynski works in sales with a rentals company, and as a former Estevan Bruin player in the 1980s, he personally found the OTS to be a good way to get to know the community. The connections he made back then are one of the reasons he came back to the community.
Indeed, the OTS golf tournament is known as the one of the social highlights of the season, and it is typically well-attended.
