Sumislawski attains top men’s low gross honours at Mount Brenton

Tight competition in all divisions during golf club championships

The absence of regular tournaments made the Mount Brenton Golf Course club championships the primary event of the season.

With no ladies or men’s amateur tournaments normally held during late August and early September due to continuing COVID-19 restrictions, players turned their attention to playing their best golf in the club championships.

Competition was keen in each of the four divisions before determining the top finishers.

Todd Sumislawski reigns as the men’s low gross champion after rounds of 74 and 72 for a two-day total of 146. Dave Bigelow had a better opening round than Sumislawski with a 72 but then slipped to a 78 and a 150 total for second low gross.

Men’s low net winner was James Hayton with a 142. Hayton had low gross rounds of 76 and 78 for a 154 and carries a six handicap that reduced in his net scores of 70 and 72.

Men’s second low net at 144 was Daniel Higginson.

In the women’s event, Dar Michell had the low gross at 175 after consistent rounds of 87 and 88. Runner-up for low gross was Kathy Matilpi, who carded a 94 the first day and 95 the second day for a 189 total.

Tops in women’s low net was Starr Adams at 150 followed closely behind by Sandra Deptford at 151.

Ted Valleau led the way in senior men’s low gross with a 152 from rounds of 77 and 75. Ross Cormack’s rounds of 74 and 81 for a 155 total gave him the runner-up spot.

Senior men’s low net champion Pedro Mengual had a 145 net, with Ferdy Hobson taking the runner-up spot at 155.

In the super seniors division, low gross at 155 went to Rob McKechnie followed by Brian Aaberg at 164. Peter Findlay captured the low net at 140, with Paul Rickard four back in the runner-up spot at 144.

It was a great weekend for the club of golf and camaraderie.

The course remains a very busy spot with members and green fee players co-mingling in large numbers, as it has been since the start of the pandemic, other than a brief period when golf was shut down by provincial health orders.
