Sportspal – 2 Man Challenge – The Final Day

The Sportspal golf tournament was completed yesterday. A highlight event at Osprey Links Golf Course it  pitted 69, 2-person teams in a Best Ball and Scramble format. After the best ball round on the first day, my partner, Blair, and I were flighted into the Championship division. Unfortunately, with a 73 on the first day, it would have taken a miracle to place in the prizes. And to remove any suspense, we did not place high enough to take home any hardware.

Before I talk about our round, I want to congratulate Rylan Young and Ryan Jardine who won the 18th Annual Sportspal 2 Person Challenge shooting 128 over two days (66 Best Ball on Saturday and 62 Scramble on Sunday) to claim the Championship and each take home a Sportspal Canoe. (Osprey Links)

I have not played in this format of golf tournament in a long time and the first day was very interesting. Continue reading

Black Bear Ridge Golf Course, Belleville, Ontario

On Sunday past, I was fortunate enough to take part in the Military Appreciation Day at Black Bear Ridge Golf Course at Belleville, Ontario. This is a top-notch course and depending the site, is rated in the top 100 in Canada! Regardless, Black Bear is a great course that offers many unique challenges that are both subtle and obvious!

The Military Appreciation Day consisted of a 4 person Best Ball. Basically, everyone plays their own ball and the lowest score of the group is recorded as the team score. Individual handicaps are not used. The course was awesome, but the weather was crazy! We experienced rain, snow, sleet, 50 kpm winds, and it was only 9 degrees. The sun made a brief appearance, but the weather could not dampen out spirits! Continue reading
