The Birchbank Ladies Club held their annual Sweepstakes Open Tournament on Tuesday, July 5th. Forty-seven golfers representing clubs from Cranbrook, Balfour, Nelson, Castlegar, Redstone, Champion Lakes, Christina Lake and Penticton, as well as Birchbank teed up in a shotgun start under pleasant skies. All golfers had a shot at winning a 2016 Ford Focus (sponsored by AM Ford) for a hole-in-one on #16; however, no one aced the hole. Leslie Weaver from Cranbrook proved to be the top golfer, carding a gross 76, while Carol Babcock of Birchbank won the overall low net with a net 65. Thanks to Dennis Bradley, Director of Golf, Birchbank, for being the major sponsor of this tournament and to AM Ford for sponsoring the hole-in-one on #16.
