Golf Kenosee was home to the Saskatchewan Mixed Team Championship on Aug. 27 and 28. The tournament, which is the final event of the summer for Golf Saskatchewan, is open to all Golf Canada members.
The tournament sees competitors from throughout Saskatchewan compete for the title every year. This year, 96 golfers took part in the tournament.
In order to be eligible to compete, competitors were required to be amateur golfers aged 19 years and over. Each team consisted of one male and one female competitor.
The weekend kicked off with a Friday night registration. Golfers were able to complete a practice round prior to the beginning of the tournament. This was in order to enable the golfers to become familiarized with the course. In addition, the golfers were treated to a social evening that served as an ice breaker.
Golfing started at 8:30 a.m. each morning with golfers taking to the course for their first round on Saturday morning. At the end of round one, locals Paul and Bev Grimes from Arcola and Aaron and Kate Robinson from Saskatoon led the tournament with scores of 69.
Torrie Coghlin and Abra Thompson from Saskatoon followed with a score of 70.
