UPPER DWYER HILL – The long weekend is when the Madawaska Golf Club crowns its champions.
The Labour Day weekend features one of the last club championships of the season in the Ottawa Valley, as more than 70 golfers vied for the championship in four divisions in the two-day tournament held Sept. 1 and Sept. 2.
Men’s club president Dan McCaskill said the weather was great and so was the tournament.
“It was a fantastic two days of competition,” McKaskill told West Carleton Online last week. “The weather was great, the course spectacular and the camaraderie was exceptional.”
Course superintendent Marty Munro had the course in tip-top condition for the major event of the year.
“The groundskeeping staff should be commended for such a wonderful job not just on the weekend but throughout the year,” McCaskill said. “We also want to thank the kitchen staff for putting on a great steak dinner, great comments about the food all around.”
Perry Freda won the club championship with a two-day score of 142. He was, obviously, also the A Division champion. Last year, Freda came second to West Carleton’s Curtis Proulx. Freda shot four strokes better this year over 2018.
Bill Descoteaux won the B championship with a 156 gross score. Dennis Bouchard won the C championship with a two-day score of 161 and Jim Bonnar was the D champion with a score of 180. The Marcellus Low Net Championship (score including handicap) went to Dave Cormier with a two-day score of 128.
