The Vegreville Kinsmen Golf Course will host what organizers are calling 'one of the largest prize tournaments' in Northern Alberta this weekend ...
The ‘2017 Pomeroy Inn and Suites 4 by 4 Tournament’ goes on Saturday and Club House Manager Murray Cummings says the event is sold-out, noting they currently have a waiting list for golfers hoping to still take part.
He says in what was a down year for the course, he’s thrilled to see the response for the tournament, which will inject cash into the course heading into the winter months.
The Tournament will see nearly $200,000 in prizes and cash up for grabs for participants including vehicles, farm equipment and more and, hence the name '4 x 4', will feature a unique twist as if one golfer in a foursome earns a prize, the entire foursome will also earn a prize.
Cummings credits the business community for coming together to help provide the prizes which were obviously a major draw for the golfers taking part.
Spectators are encouraged to come out and take in the action when it gets underway with a 9:00am Shotgun Start.
