An enthusiastic and fun loving group of 81 golfers hit the links June 21 during the Rotary Club of Sylvan Lake’s annual golf tournament at Meadowlands Golf Club.

“Highlights of the day were the generous contributions of hole sponsors and the silent auction,” said lead organizer Joyce Megson. “The golf course was in excellent shape, a great meal and wonderful volunteers made the event the best of the past three years.”

Over $8,000 was raised for scholarships which are presented to students at Bentley, Eckville and H. J. Cody high schools.

Sylvan Lake Lacrosse members participated with generosity and enrolment of golf teams, said Megson. Rotary will help them with their fundraising activities.

The tournament’s winning team included Dan Weik, Tim Harris, Chad Tallon and Jon Gulayets with a score of 13 under. Other individual golfers won hole prizes.
