OTTAWA, Ontario – COVID-19 was not kind to sporting activities this summer. However, golf was part of the phase 1 re-opening in Ontario and across the country. This allowed three Ravens golfers to participate in their respective club championships and they each walked away with the top hardware.
New Raven, Emma Harvie competed in the Women’s club championship at Greyhawk Golf Club in Ottawa’s east end. The 54-hole three-day event was a stroke play competition with two rounds on the links style Predator course and the final round on the championship Talon course. Emma tallied 85, 80 and 80 for a 3-day total of 245, enough to take home the trophy.
In the west end of the City, Women’s Captain and varsity team senior, Chloe Wilson was taking on all the ladies at the Mississippi Golf Club near Appleton. In the 2-day stroke play event, Chloe shot 73 and 77 to lap other competitors and take the Women’s Club Championship plaque. Congratulations Chloe.
Finally, on the shores of Lake Simcoe, second year player Kyle Warton took home two championships with stellar play in difficult conditions. At The Briars Resort and Spa, Kyle shot 79, 74 and 75 to overcome a 13 stroke deficit and take the Men’s Club Championship trophy by one shot. Then he drove down the road to The Pines of Georgina Golf Course, where he is also a member, and took men’s top honours with a 6-stroke victory following rounds of 75 and 73. As a side note, Kyle also won a men’s invitational tournament at the Ridge of Manitou Golf Club with rounds of 77 and 72 to win by one stroke.
