Tuesday’s WRLA Terry Yates Memorial Golf Tournament at Quarry Oaks in Steinbach gave many answers to this simple question.
The top reasons for participating, in no special order are: to exercise, to get fresh air, to have camaraderie with associates, to scoop a day away from the office, to fund raise, to improve your golf swing, to share laughs, and to compete in a friendly environment.
There were over 200 golfers who shared these thoughts during an 11:00 a.m. shot-gun tee off Tuesday, August 21. It was sunny and it was hot. The day capped off with a roast beef buffet in the Marquee. President Gary Hamilton, and Board Directors, Sean Phillips, Martha Konantz and Steve Peters presented awards and prizes.
