By Kevin Sabo For the Advance

The Castor Golf Club played host to the 2018 rendition of the Women’s Golf Scramble on July 21.

The tournament brings women golfers from all over central Alberta to play 18 holes on the Castor golf green. The tournament has run for many years on the Castor course and have the participants competing for several cash prizes.

Fourteen teams of three ladies took to the green at 10 a.m. in a shotgun start, with the last team making it back to the clubhouse around 4:30 p.m., just as a storm was starting to blow into town.

After everyone was gathered back into the club and had refreshed themselves a catered supper was put on allowing everyone to relax before the awards presentations.

The overall winners of the tournament were the team of Rochelle Freeborn, Vonnie Stefanishion and Mary Sutherland, although due to the overwhelming support of the event by community business, no one left empty-handed.
