Well, another Oilmen’s golf event has come and gone and once again a resounding success.

240 golfers teed it up over 3 days of competition.

Sponsors made this whole event possible and many, many thanks go out to them for the continued support they have shown.

The Grande Prairie Golf & Country Club were once again the perfect hosts. Everything was in order and the hospitality was second to none.

This year saw some very close competition as a lot of the flight winners were decided in a count back to settle the ties.

Championship Flight: This year’s tournament champion was decided in a count back as 2 Players shot a 3 day total of 219, but Mark Catling’s final day 76 was over shadowed by Steve Hill’s final round 69 to clinch the tournament championship.

13th Flight: Jim Albrecht’s 324 was just barely enough to defeat a hard charging Felix Seiler’s 325.

14th Flight: Jim Valin and his 3 day total of 331 was the low score in this flight. Next closest in second place was Peter Guenther with a 3 day total of 338
