27th Annual Smurf Classic Golf Tournament raises $1,125 for SAR

Last Saturday (April 16), 102 die hard golfers showed up at Sequoia Springs to play in the Smurf Classic Golf Tournament. The weather did not co-operate but everyone had a great time welcoming in the golfing season.

Two teams came in with a winning score of 58 (14 under par). Off they went to a sudden death playoff starting on Hole #9.

The team of Curtis Wilson birdied the hole while Wayne Spiers’ team could only come up with a par so only one hole was needed.

Congratulations to Curtis Wilson, Clint Baikie, Brad Rombo & Richard Ball.

The winners of the K.P.’s were Karen Todoruk for the Ladies, Kevin Ocklin for the Men’s and Blair Billard for Everyone’s.

The real winner for the tournament was the Campbell River Search and Rescue team as $1,125.00 was raised that day and Richard Finch, one of the rescue team members there was very happy to accept the donation.
