Mo’ golf with Snow Golf

18th annual Kinsmen Snow Golf tournament this Saturday, January 12th

Dust off your clubs: the 18th annual Kinsmen Snow Golf tournament is this Saturday, January 12th. This event always draws out an enthusiastic group of golfers, ready to have an icy blast golfing on Lake Windermere.

Chairman Steve Kuffler says they average about 20 teams each year, though there is room for more. Funds raised go to help within the community where it is needed. While it is for a good cause, it doesn’t mean teams can’t have fun doing it. Some teams bring quads or snowmobiles, hook up trailers and haul around barbecues or even chesterfields onto the course.

“It’s the guaranteed best round of golf of the year,” Mr. Kuffler assures. “It’s so much fun out there; people have a blast.”

Shotgun start is at 12 p.m for the scramble format event. The course is set up right on the white expanse of the lake, so coloured balls are recommended. Mr. Kuffler says they are staying positive that the ice, which has taken an unusually long time to thicken this year, will be ready for Saturday.

So grab three friends, a great attitude, and a warm pair of socks, and sign up today. Buy your tickets at The Station Neighbourhood Pub now, or register Saturday at 11 a.m. Tickets are $35; players must be 19 years or older.
