Local golfers do well in Winnipeg

Three local women and Kitchen Creek club pro Steve Wood teed off in Winnipeg last week for the Manitoba PGA Pro Lady Tournament and despite the chilly weather, they managed to have a great time—and place in the top eight.
“The conditions were tough, it was windy and cool,” noted Wood, who was participating in the tournament for the fifth year. “But considering the conditions, we had a really good time, we had a lot of fun.”
Every year a qualifying tournament is held to determine which three women will compete in the tournament, based on best net scores. Representing Kitchen Creek this year were Megan Ross, Rita Woodland, and Barb Asplund.
The tournament, held at the Bel Acres Golf and Country Club, welcomed 34 teams from across Manitoba and Northwestern Ontario to compete on the par-72 course.
The first-place winners came in with a 65, and the Kitchen Creek foursome not far behind at 68.
Each of the three women won a $50 gift certificate to the Bel Acres pro shop.
“Personally, I think the ladies did really well,” said Wood. “My main goal is to make sure we have a good time, and we did.”
