par which was good enough for the win. Gudman Lindbjerg received first place in the Super Seniors Championship. Local players who participated were Shuswap Lake Estates Members Gord Smith, Ken Davidson, Brian Duquette and Ross Dupuis. Gary Champagne from Salmon Arm also competed. It was nice to see the local participation, what an experience. Now, this tournament would not be possible if it were not for the support of our community. More than 70 volunteers offered their help, members and nonmembers. That is almost half as many volunteers as there were players. Many (most) put in all three days and many of those spent full days as well. I have worked at many courses through my career and have never experienced this level of support from the membership and community, volunteering their help not only with the golf course events but other events throughout the community. My hat is off to you. What a great community. On behalf of the golf course (owners, management and staff) I would like to thank you very much for your time and efforts.
