Swallow is an 8-peat!

Two days of great golf weather led to a successful open tournament at the Dinosaur Trail Golf course this past weekend.

Both the Ladies and Men’s tournaments were held, and Kyle Wade emerged as the low gross winner and course superintendent Colin Mckenzie won low net honours.

On the Women’s side, Heather Swallow came out on top as low gross winner and Joanne Schinnour emerged as low net winner. Swallow was presented with the Barb Losoncy plaque as tournament winner once again, having won it for the eighth time.
